Bindi Irwin’s 16-month-old daughter has a special spot in her heart for her “Grandpa Crocodile.”
Bindi, 24, posted an adorable clip of daughter Grace Warrior, 16 months, exploring the Australia Zoo grounds this past Sunday.
Bindi Irwin’s Daughter’s Reaction To a Photo of ‘Grandpa Crocodile’ Steve Irwin Is So Precious
“We have a little construction going on to make our Tasmanian devil habitat @australiazoo even more beautiful. Grace’s favorite part? Visiting Grandpa Crocodile,” the proud mom wrote, adding, “All the love.”
In the clip, Grace goes up to a sign near the habitat that has a picture of the late Steve Irwin in a construction hat and points to it.
“Do you see him? Is he over here?” Bindi encourages as Grace runs up to the sign. When Bindi asks, “Do you love Grandpa Crocodile?” Grace sweetly replies, “Yeah!”
The tot runs back and forth between the two photos, stopping to wave one time as Bindi tells her, “I love you, sweetheart! Grandpa Crocodile loves you too!”
Back in May, Bindi spoke to the outlet about how her little girl — who she shares with husband Chandler Powell — is enamored by her late “Grandpa Crocodile.”
“We have so many documentaries of Dad, and we’re always playing them for Grace,” Bindi shared. “It’s so fun to watch her study him.”
“I didn’t realize how much Dad’s passion for life and his animated facial expressions — I mean, they captivate her.”
“I definitely see parts of [Dad] in Grace,” says Bindi. “His determination and his inability to sit still. I think that’s really special. I’m excited to see as she grows up how her personality will develop. If Dad was around, honestly, we would never see her. He would be in love.”
Steve was known for his wildlife documentary television series The Crocodile Hunter. While the father of two was diving with stingrays for an underwater film titled Ocean’s Deadliest, he died on September 4, 2006, at age 44. Bindi was just eight years old.
Grace also adores grandma Terri Irwin, whom Bindi praised for being an amazing grandparent in a birthday post.
“Grace’s ‘Bunny,'” Bindi captioned photos of grandmother and granddaughter from throughout her first year. “Our beautiful daughter is blessed beyond measure to have all the love in the world from my sweet mama. Happy Birthday, Bunny!”
