On Sunday, November 15th, Bindi Irwin shared a loving tribute to her late father, Steve Irwin, on Instagram in honor of Steve Irwin Day. The beloved crocodile hunter died in 2006 after he was stung in the chest by a stingray. Bindi has continued to honor the late wildlife expert through her stellar and emotionally-charged performances on Dancing with the Stars this season.
“The greatest dad on Earth,” Bindi captioned the Instagram picture of her father holding a crocodile. “November 15. Steve Irwin Day. Remembering everything Dad worked so hard to achieve and continuing his legacy. We miss you so much and are extremely proud to be carrying on in your footsteps. Yesterday we celebrated #SteveIrwinDay in Australia. Today, let's celebrate together on the other side of the world, today on November 15. Thank you for joining us in making a difference. Wearing our khakis and remember everything Dad did to change the world.”
Bindi's DWTS dance partner, Derek Hough, also paid tribute on Instagram. “It's officially #steveirwinday in Australia. He will always be remembered. #legend #wildlifewarrior @bindisueirwin #teamcrikey4life” he captioned the photo.
