While Bindi was only eight years old when her father died, she continues to keep his legacy alive. She, her brother, Robert, and mom Terri, as well as husband Chandler Powell, have continued to oversee the Australia Zoo and share their life with their show, Crikey! It's the Irwins.
"I love that photo so much. It's probably one of my favorite photos we have of him because he is with his beautiful dog, Sue," Bindi told ET. "My middle name Sue, I was named after the family dog. Suey will always hold a special place in my heart and growing up she was one of the very first animals I loved. She was there from the moment I was born…Sadly Suey and dad both passed away, but I love that photograph because it symbolizes everyone who could not be there with us on that day and it's just beautiful and it's such a perfect moment. Just dad, our dog Suey. They always shared a cup of tea together in the morning."
She also shared that she would be keeping her last name in honor of Steve.
"I’ve kept Bindi Irwin," she told ET in May. "I think that for me personally, after dad passed away it was really important for me to feel close to him, and having his last name means so much to me."
Chandler added that they talked about the possible name change, but at the end of the day she's "an Irwin through and through."
"Chandler has become an Irwin now," Bindi said with a laugh. "It has become a part of me. Everyone has their own ideas, but the nice thing is that it's 2020 now, anything works!"
"Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021," Bindi captioned a sweet photo of herself and Chandler wearing matching khaki uniforms and holding up a tiny khaki shirt with the family's Australia Zoo embroidered on it in green. "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."
