Steve Irwin’s Kids Pay Tribute to ‘Greatest Dad’ on His 60th Birthday


Steve Irwin’s children paid tribute to the ‘greatest dad and wildlife warrior’ on what would have been his 60th birthday.

Obert and Bindi Irwin said they would remember The Crocodile Hunter in their own personal way to mark the occasion, by sharing old photos online.

Both followed in their father’s footsteps by becoming environmentalists and television personalities.

Irwin, known for his fearless confrontation of dangerous beasts around the world, died in September 2006 after being stabbed in the chest by a stingray beard.

Robert said every minute spent with his father had been “a blessing”.

“Happy Birthday Dad. I love and miss you everyday,” he wrote.

“My earliest memories are my dearest thanks to you. Clinging to the handlebars of the motorcycle, during your morning tour of the zoo.

“Every minute with you has been a blessing. I’m going to do this ride on your old motorcycle this afternoon.

His older sister, who was eight when their father passed away, wrote, “Happy birthday to the greatest of dads and Wildlife Warrior.

“Today I will be watching The Crocodile Hunter with Grace Warrior and sharing stories about her amazing Crocodile Grandfather.

“I love you with all my heart. Your legacy lives on.

Ms Irwin is married to former American professional wakeboarder Chandler Powell, with whom she shares a daughter, Grace.
