Bindi Irwin grew up on our screens and we all loved watching her working alongside her father, and it was recently that a post on her Instagram page sent waves through the internet.
On our screens
Back in 2015, Bindi Irwin wowed us with her amazing footwork with her dance partner Derek Hough on Dancing With The Stars. The duo then went on to be crowned the winners of the show which was in its 21st season. Before she appeared on the show, Bindi was mostly known as the daughter of the late Steve Irwin.
Her Instagram post
Bindi quickly came out from the shadow of her famous conservationist father and gained many fans. In fact, she became so popular that when she posted this on her Instagram page, she never expected it blow up as much as it did. As they say, her post almost definitely broke the internet.
Before her stint on the show, many people would have remembered Bindi as a young girl who was her father’s sidekick. Steve Irwin was known to us all as ‘The Crocodile Hunter’ and could often be seen out in the wilderness filming his TV show or working at the Australia Zoo. “Crickey” had become one of his taglines, and we were all saying it.
Named after a crocodile
Along with his wife Teri, they gave us access to animals as we’d never seen them before. And it was at the zoo, which had been in Steve’s family since the ’70s, that the married couple got the idea for the name of their Daughter. Bindi was named after one of Steve’s beloved crocodiles.
