‘Thank you for showing me the infinite power of a mama’s love’: Bindi Irwin shares a sweet tribute to her mum Terri ahead of Mother’s Day and calls her a ‘real life Wonder Woman’
Bindi Irwin has just become a mother after welcoming daughter Grace Warrior on March 25.
But on Wednesday, the 22-year-old reflected on her own relationship with her mum Terri, 56, sharing a sweet tribute to her ahead of Mother’s Day.
Bindi shared a picture of the pair hugging on Instagram and called Terri a ‘real life Wonder Woman’.
‘Thank you for showing me the infinite power of a mama’s love,’ Bindi captioned the post.
She added: ‘You are the real life Wonder Woman. I love you beyond description.’
She made the post ahead of Mother’s Day this Sunday.
Bindi has just become a mother herself, welcoming her first child with husband Chandler Powell, 24, in March.
Their daughter Grace Warrior Irwin Powell was born on their first wedding anniversary.
Grace’s middle names are a tribute to Bindi’s late father Steve, who coined the term ‘Wildlife Warrior’ to promote his conservation efforts at Australia Zoo.
Steve died in September 2006 at the age of 44, after being pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming a wildlife documentary in Queensland.
Last month, Bindi broke down in tears over her heartache that her father would never get to meet her newborn baby Grace, in a preview for the family’s new show Crikey! It’s A Baby! on Animal Planet.
In the footage, Bindi – alongside her husband Chandler Powell, brother Robert and mother Terri – took baby Grace to visit Australia Zoo’s ‘Crocoseum’, where Steve would love to ‘feed the crocodiles and spend time as a family’.
Reflecting on the special moment, Bindi, 22, said: ‘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.
‘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.’
As Bindi began to get emotional, she added: ‘It’s going to be really special. It’s going to be really special for her to know him, and tell her about what an amazing man he was.’
Through tears, she added that out of ‘everyone in the world’, Steve would have ‘loved Grace the most’.
‘But I think in a way he is still with us and his heart and soul live on in all of us. He’s never really gone,’ she added.
