The 19-year-old wildlife lover was just 8 years old when her father, Steve Irwin, died after a stingray attack in the waters off Port Douglas in Far North Queensland in 2006.

Bindi is the only daughter of Steve and Terri Irwin. She first appeared on her father's hit wildlife TV series, Crocodile Hunter Diaries, at the age of 2, as reported by Good House Keeping.

At age 8, the teen was given her own TV series, Bindi the Jungle Girl.

"I have spent my entire life living in a zoo, which is pretty crazy. Not many kids get to say that," she told E! News.

When Steve passed away, Bindi decided to continue her father's legacy by promoting conservation via television.

"I don’t want Daddy’s passion to ever end. I want to help endangered wildlife just like he did," she said in her eulogy at the legendary crocodile hunter's funeral, according to Huffington Post.

Bindi, who has been dating boyfriend Chandler Powell, lives up to her promise. In 2010, she was picked to star in the movie, Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove.

Two years later, she hosted her own wildlife-themed game show in Australia called Bindi's Bootcamp.

Bindi took part in Dancing With The Stars in 2015. Before she joined the cast for season 21, she first asked the permission from a California judge because she was only 17 years old at the time. Bindi was paired with seasoned pro Derek Hough.
