Terri Irwin just celebrated her 53rd birthday, 11 years after her beloved husband Steve passed away.
Since the conservationist’s untimely death in 2006, the Irwin family has shown incredible resolve to find joy despite their tragic circumstances. The Irwins honor their dad’s memory by continuing his work and loving each other like every family should.
Yesterday, in honor of her mother Terri’s 53rd birthday, 18-year-old Bindi Irwin took to Instagram with a tear worthy series of throwback photos. Her words and the images give us a sense of how special this little family is. Check out the collection, and Bindi’s words, below.
Happy Birthday to my mum. Today I will be sharing some of my favourite photos of Mum so that you can celebrate her birthday with us. She really is the most adventurous woman I know.
Her life has been filled with extraordinary moments, just like the one captured in this photo.
Moving to Australia after marrying the love of her life and embarking on a whirlwind journey. Travelling all over the world filming and spreading the message of wildlife conservation.
Building the largest and busiest wildlife hospital on Earth, treating over 70,000 patients.
Funding conservation projects across the globe helping rhinos, tigers, cheetahs, elephants and crocodiles.
Ensuring everything that she and Dad created together continues on and being there for me and Robert.
Mum does so much and always has endless amounts of time for us.
We are truly blessed to have such a kind and patient mum. We love her with all of our hearts and can’t wait to celebrate this special day.
Though life without Steve has been difficult for the Irwin family, it’s clear that they have not lost one ounce of their zest for life. If we all make an effort to love each other, even when times get tough, this world will be all the better for it.
Happy birthday Terri!
