Bindi Irwin’s 6-month-old daughter Grace Warrior may inherit some musical skills from her uncle Robert Irwin!
This past Thursday, Bindi, 23, posted an adorable clip of Robert, 17, playing the guitar with baby Grace. “Our baby girl learning to play the guitar with her uncle! Absolutely love this video,” she captioned the bonding moment.
“There you go good job,” Robert tells the 6-month-old at the beginning of the clip, instructing her on where to place her fingers.
“Okay, now D chord. Try the D chord. It’s a bit trickier,” he says to his niece, before encouraging her with: “Oh good finger control… Good stuff.”
Robert goes on, saying: “What else can we do? We can do a Cadd9. Try that one.” And, Grace Warrior goes for it! “Learning all the chords,” Robert says as he looked towards the camera.
The uncle and niece duo ended the clip on an E chord. “Good job Grace, yay!” he cheers. Robert also posted the clip and captioned it: “Guitar lessons with Grace Warrior! (Love that giggle at the end).”
Previously, the new uncle shared his goals of being a “fun uncle” as well as their guitar sessions.
“I’m already trying to teach her how to play the guitar,” Robert told Entertainment Tonight in June. “It’s one of my passions, so she’ll always go to sleep when I play the guitar. She loves it. You know, I’m trying to be the fun Uncle Robert!”
He continued, “She’s at that age now where she’s really reacting to things, you know, when she sees a new animal. We met a koala for the first time the other day and her little face, she was all kinds of sleepy, and she saw that koala and her face just lit up. The biggest smile, and it was amazing.”
“I can already tell she is a wildlife warrior,” he said. “And I cannot wait to just introduce her to everything zoo life.”
“I feel so honoured that I’ll get to share all the amazing experiences that I had growing up in a zoo, and teach her about everything from rescuing wildlife to caring for our family of animals!” he added.
