Bindi Sue Irwin, the daughter of late TV personality Steve Irwin, has shown some love to her dad as she gets ready for the married life.
Yesterday, the famous wildlife conservationist took to social media to share a throwback picture of herself and her late father. In a short post, she thanked him for his influence in her life, captioning the photo:
"Thank you for being my guiding light. You're always with me."

The image showed the happy duo having fun in what seemed like an outdoor camping setting. Steve and young Bindi had huge smiles on their faces as they both had their arms up high. The adorable image had lots of fans gushing, with most talking about how adorable the duo looked.
Fans of the late widlife guru and his daughter had plenty well wishes for them with one fan affirming how much Bindi getting married would have meant to her dad if he was alive. Another fan wrote,
"Your dad would be so proud of you Bindi, I hope you have a long and loving married life."
Steve was one of the most popular wildlife show hosts of the 2000s. His show, "Crocodile Hunter," thrilled fans across the world and gave an expose on how these apex predators live.
However, the TV show host died in 2006 after a stingray barb pierced him in the chest while he was filming in Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
Bindi and Chandler Powell tie the knot after six years of dating.
In more ways than one, Bindi has now taken after her dad. She runs the family zoo and has also developed a particular love for wildlife over the years. She's also a star on the Animal Planet and has partnered with several wildlife conservation causes in the past.
The 21-year-old also got married recently to her fiancé Chandler Powell. The couple tied the knot on March 25, in a small ceremony.
They didn't have any guests at the wedding because of the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, they chose that the event should be as intimate and as private as possible.
Powell is a former professional wakeboarder who visited the Irwin family zoo years back with his family. They reportedly hit it off immediately and started dating not long after.
Chandler and Bindi got engaged last year on her 21st birthday, and they've been planning their wedding ever since. "People" confirmed that they had initially planned to have their big day in April. Due to the virus, however, they chose to make a few changes and tie the knot in the presence of their close family members.
