Bindi Irwin has stepped out of her comfort zone on this season of Dancing With the Stars and her family has been there to support her every step of the way.
The 17-year-old animal conservationist gushed about her mom Terri to ET after Monday’s show, calling her "the most beautiful and strong human being I have ever known."
"No matter what has happened in life, her strength and her support has never once wavered," Bindi said of her mom. "She is so kind. She is there every single day during rehearsal."
Terri’s been seen in the crowd every week applauding Bindi’s DWTS performances, but she’s also attended every one of Bindi’s rehearsals, all while remotely conducting her duties as owner of the Australia Zoo.
"She sits on the little couch running Australia Zoo, because we're still running Australia Zoo back home, but she's still with me in rehearsals and that means everything," Bindi said.
Bindi danced her week two tango to AC/DC’s "You Shook Me All Night Long," a song that she revealed was a surprising family favorite and a tribute to her late father, “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin.
"I remember, when I was really little, dancing to that song with Dad," Irwin told the judges when they marveled at her performance, the highest-scoring of the night. "It means everything to me."
"The song we did that night, it was a beautiful song that meant a lot to us as family because it did remind us of dad," Bindi told ET on Monday. "Through this whole journey, we're always thinking of him and just making sure his legacy and message lives on in us."
