Steve Irwin’s Daughter Bindi Gives Birth To Baby Girl And Names Her In Honour Of Late Croc Hunter Dad

CROCODILE Hunter star Steve Irwin's daughter Bindi has given birth to a baby girl with husband Chandler Powell. The 22-year-old star revealed in an Instagram post today that they have called their first child Grace Warrior - partly in honour of her late dad.

She wrote: "Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s. "Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior. "Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad. "There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl. She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed."

Bindi marked the date writing: "March 25, 2021. Celebrating the two loves of my life. "Happy first wedding anniversary to my sweetheart husband and day of birth to our beautiful daughter." Steve Irwin died in September 2006, aged 44, while filming at Batt Reef in Queensland for the series Ocean's Deadliest. He was pierced in the chest by a stingray barb having approached the animal in a bid to film it swimming away.

The Crocodile Hunter star was snorkelling in shallow waters in an attempt to get footage for the conservation programme he presented with his daughter - Bindi The Jungle Girl. In August, Bindi and Chandler, 23, revealed their baby news by posing together in their Australia Zoo uniforms, holding up a tiny version of the outfit for their little one. She wrote: “Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021. Chandler and I are proud to announce that we're expecting! “It's an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you. Though I'm still in my first trimester, we really want you to be part of our journey from the beginning of this new life chapter. “We couldn't wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives. Your support means the world to us.”
