Bindi took to her Instagram to share the special bond that she shares with him. It seems family is very important to Bindi as she wrote a note to her late father stating that he would have been proud of her and Robert. The post said
“Dad, You would be so incredibly proud of Robert, he has been such an amazing support during this beautiful new life chapter. I know you’d be beaming with pride when the time comes that he walks me down the aisle. I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us."
