Heartwarming Moment Bindi Irwin's Daughter Recognises 'Grandpa Crocodile'

Steve Irwin was a legend of the nineties and early noughties, and now his two children, Bindi and Robert, are keeping the Crocodile Hunter's legacy alive.

Bindi, 24, gave birth to Steve's first grandchild, Grace, in March of last year, and now she's shared the heartwarming moment she recognised her 'Grandpa crocodile'. Watch below:

"Do you see him?" Bindi can be heard asking in the video.

Her daughter replies with a gargled, "Ya."

The video was captioned: "We have a little construction going on to make our Tasmanian devil habitat @australiazoo even more beautiful. Grace's favourite part? Visiting Grandpa Crocodile. All the love."

Steve tragically died at the age of just 44 in 2006 after he was attacked by a stingray while filming a documentary.

Fans of the late animal hero flooded the comments section with heartfelt reactions to the video.

One wrote: "Steve's soul lives on through his granddaughter."

"It's like she knows him from another time," added a second, while a third wrote: "This brought me so much joy!"

A fourth remarked: "Oh my goodness Bindi this is beyond special! [sic] Grace Warrior's connection and love for your dad is so evident! This is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. My heart is so full from this pure and loving moment. Thank you for sharing this with all of us."

The heartwarming video comes after Bindi previously revealed that Grace was 'captivated' by videos of her late grandfather.

She told PEOPLE: "We have so many documentaries of Dad, and we're always playing them for Grace.

"It's so fun to watch her study him. I didn't realise how much Dad's passion for life and his animated facial expressions - I mean, they captivate her."

Bindi added that she sees a lot of her father in her young daughter.

"I definitely see parts of [Dad] in Grace," Bindi said. "His determination and his inability to sit still. I think that's really special. I'm excited to see as she grows up how her personality will develop. If Dad was around, honestly, we would never see her. He would be in love.

"He'd just have her doing everything with him. We would only see her if she needed a feed and then be gone again."
