Bindi Irwin Breaks Down In Tears After Tribute To Her Late Father On “Dancing With The Stars.”

In 2006 the world lost a friend and a family lost their beloved father. Steve Irwin was a daring, exciting and warm personality on television, but his relationship with his family was something special indeed.

Bindi Irwin, Steve’s daughter, finally opened up about the loss of her father while a contestant on Dancing With The Stars. Even after nearly a decade, Bindi never forgot who her father was and who she hoped to be.

“I can remember being little and thinking, ‘the one thing I want is to be just like dad when I grow up…’ and I still feel like that.”

Bindi decided to use her platform on Dancing With The Stars to honor Steve Irwin as a father, a different side of the man than the Crocodile Hunter we all knew and loved. The beautiful dance she choreographed with Derek Hough give a little glimpse into the life of a man so loved.
