‘This sweetheart has been watching her “Grandpa Crocodile” on the projector at our camp here on the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve,’ Bindi began.

‘She lights up when she sees him on screen. I wish with all my heart that Dad could hug my beautiful girl.

‘It’s been 15 years since he passed away. I hold on to the thought that he’s her guardian angel now, watching over the most special part of my life, Grace Warrior.’

Alongside a cute picture of little Grace, Bindi also shared a photograph of her with her dad when she was just a toddler.

On their show Crikey! It’s a Baby!, Bindi broke down as she revealed her sadness over the fact her daughter Grace will never get to meet Steve.

‘It’s hard knowing she’ll never get to actually meet him, and it’s devastating as I’ll never get to watch that connection,’ Bindi said tearfully.

‘But I cannot wait to be able to tell beautiful Grace all of these stories about dad, and share with her what an amazing father he was.’
