‘I wish we could all be together’: Bindi Irwin shares a touching family portrait created by an artist showing her late father Steve cradling her baby daughter Grace Warrior

Bindi Irwin recently broke down in tears over the fact that her late father Steve will never get the chance to meet her newborn daughter, his first grandchild, Grace Warrior. 

And this week, Bindi, 22, shared a touching family portrait created by a talented artist that showed Steve cradling the tiny tot. 

Bindi shared the moving portrait, and one of her with husband Chandler’s family, on Mother’s Day on Sunday and said she wishes they could all be together.

‘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,’ Bindi said. 

‘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.’

'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,' Bindi said

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.

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. 

Meanwhile, Bindi and Chandler welcomed daughter Grace Warrior Irwin Powell on March 25.

The baby was born on their first wedding anniversary, one year after they wed at Australia Zoo.

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.
