In footage released in April for the Irwins’ new show, Crikey! It’s a baby! on Animal Planet, Bindi burst into tears when she shared her “devastation” that Grace Warrior will never meet Steve.
“It’s hard to know she’s never actually going to meet him, and it’s devastating because I’ll never see that connection,” Bindi said.
“But I can’t wait to tell beautiful Grace all these stories about Daddy and share with her what a wonderful father he was.”

When Bindi started to get emotional, she added, “It’s going to be very special. It will be very special for her to get to know him and tell her what a wonderful man he was. ‘
Through tears, she added that Steve would have loved “Grace the most” of “anyone in the world.”
“But I think in a sense he is still with us and his heart and soul live on in all of us. He’s never really gone, ‘she added.

Steve died in September 2006 at the age of 44, after being hit in the chest by a stingray while filming a wildlife documentary in Queensland.
Meanwhile, Bindi and Chandler welcomed daughter Grace Warrior Irwin Powell on March 25.
The baby was born on their first wedding anniversary, a year after they got married at Australia Zoo.
Grace’s middle names are a tribute to Bindi’s late father Steve, who coined the term ‘Wildlife Warrior’ to promote his conservation efforts at Australia Zoo.
