Bindi Irwin shared an emotional video of her daughter recognizing Steve Irwin as 'Grandpa Crocodile.'

Steve Irwin would definitely be incredibly proud of his family. Not only are they continuing his public legacy of animal rights and environmental activism, but they're continuing his private legacy in their family as well. His daughter, Bindi, 24, shared a video of her daughter, Grace, 1, that has fans' hearts breaking.

Bindi has always involved her father in her daughter's life.

Even from as soon as she was named! Baby Grace Warrior Irwin Powell was born in March 2021, and as Bindi wrote on Instagram, "Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior."

It goes further than just Grace's name, however.

In a video shared to her Instagram, Bindi shows her young daughter excitedly running over to a fence that has a sign with Steve Irwin's photo on it. "Do you see him? Is he over here?" Bindi is heard asking in the video, to which Grace excitedly agrees and points. "Grandpa Crocodile," Bindi adds.

Bindi then asks Grace to wave to her grandfather, which Grace adorably does.

"I love you, sweetheart. Grandpa Crocodile loves you too," Bindi says in the video.

"We have a little construction going on to make our Tasmanian devil habitat @australiazoo even more beautiful," Bindi captioned the shot on her Instagram. "Grace’s favourite part? Visiting Grandpa Crocodile. All the love."

"Her little wave gets me every time," added Bindi's husband Chandler Powell.

Fans were overjoyed to see this moment and took to the comments to share their feelings. "Oh my goodness Bindi this is beyond special! 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," shared one comment.
