Bindi Irwin's Stunning Transformation through the Years
The daughter of the famous crocodile hunter Steve Irwin made her debut at her dad's show at just two years old, where he made sure she was exposed to all kinds of animals. Now, she has become a beautiful young woman.
Bindi, a devoted supporter of wildlife, was born on July 24, 1998, and grew up in the Australian Zoo, which her parents Teri and Steve managed. Irwin also supports the Wildlife Warriors Worldwide charity, an organization that her parents founded in 2002.
In 2006, she lost her father in an unexpected accident while in the Great Barrier Reef. Bindi's fortitude and maturity were especially remembered during her father's memorial service, in which the 8-year-old girl referred to her father as "her hero."
Bindi was not only part of her father Steve Irwin's program, in 2006 she released an exercise DVD called “Bindi KidFitness with Steve Irwin and the Crocmen" because she has always believed in staying healthy. She also had her own show, "Bindi: The Jungle Girl" for two seasons.
The purpose of the program was to promote the culture of animal conservation and nature among children, teaching them with friends and family members different types of animals. In six months, the program was awarded the EMMY Award for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series.
PROMISES TO CONTINUE THE LEGACY OF HER FATHER
In the eulogy she directed to the public during her father's memorial service at the Australia Zoo, Bindi promised to continue her father's legacy. "I don't want Daddy's passion to ever end. I want to help endangered wildlife just like he did," she said.
In the future, her plans contemplate being a manager of the Australian Zoo, which is where she has grown because her family has taken care of them and managed for years. After all, she is named after her father's favorite crocodile at the Zoo.
BINDI AND THE SHOWBIZ
Her first appearance in a movie was in 2010 for "Free Willy: Escape from Pirates Cove," where she plays Kirra, an Australian girl who helps rescue a small killer whale trapped in her grandfather's water park.
Bindi also participated in television shows such as "My Babysitter's a Vampire" and "Curious George" in 2012. She also starred in the continuation of the movie Nim’s Island, called “Return to Nim's Island” in 2013.
Those who had not heard of her, or had lost her track, could follow her in “Dancing with the Stars,” where a 17-year-old Bindi danced with her professional partner Derek Hough (Julianne Hough's brother).
The couple danced different types of dances throughout the season to win the first place of the 2015 season, including a tribute to the movie “Dirty Dancing” (with the iconic loaded) and an emotional tribute to their father. The prize money was donated by her to animal conservation causes.
In 2013, during a visit to the Zoo, a young man noticed Bindi and was taken by her. They kept in touch when he had to return to the United States, his native country. However, the young man has a plan and persevered to win Bindi’s heart.
On July 24, 2019, during her 21st birthday, Irwin got engaged to that young man who has been her boyfriend for several years, Chandler Powell, as she posted on her Instagram account. Bindi has always shown her admiration for her father, but in this new facet, her mother is her role model.
In several interviews, she mentioned that she still misses her father and that during family dinners while sharing with her mother Teri and her brother Robert, they usually think that Steve should still be with them.
In this new stage, the Irwin family has a lot to share with their audience, and the fans have not been disappointed since in 2018 they released a new reality show called “Crikey! It's the Irwins” on Animal Planet.
In the new show, the spectators take the front seat to learn about the daily life of Bindi, Teri, and Robert, while they take care of the animals at the Australian Zoo. During the first months of 2019, Bindi posted on his Instagram account that the show would have a second season. Such an amazing and beautiful way to continue the legacy of his father, Steve Irwin The Crocodile Hunter.
