Sweet Tribute: Bindi Irwin paid tribute to her parents on what would have been their 29th birthday. The 22-year-old took to Instagram on Friday, sharing a throwback photo of her late father Steve Irwin and mother Terri.

In the photo, the young animal-loving couple smiled as Terri cradles a baby goanna in her chest.

Steve and Terri married in 1992 in her home state of Oregon.

Bindi’s sweet devotion comes after she recently broke down in tears that her late father will never get the chance to meet his first grandchild, Grace Warrior.

And thanks to the efforts of a talented visual artist, the young conservationist could imagine what such an encounter would have looked like had her father survived the stingray attack that killed him in 2006.

She shared the artwork, which features Steve cradling his granddaughter alongside the rest of the Irwin family, on May 9 with her 4.7 million Instagram followers.
