The nature conservationist shared a new selfie of her family of three at the Australia Zoo
For Bindi Irwin, family is everything.
The nature conservationist, 25, shared a post on Instagram Saturday dedicated to her “world” — her husband, Chandler Powell, and her 2-year-old daughter, Grace Warrior.
The family snapped a sweet selfie at the Australia Zoo — where Irwin and Powell, also 25, both work — with one of the zoo’s pups, Piggy.
Irwin also shared a smiley mother-daughter photo with her mini-me.
“My. Entire. World. ❤️,” Irwin captioned the photos.
Powell showed his wife some love on the post, commenting, “The sweetest girls. ❤️ You are OUR entire world.”
While speaking to PEOPLE exclusively for her August 2023 cover story, Irwin opened up about how grateful she feels to have her daughter.
"For us personally, we feel so lucky to have Grace," Irwin told PEOPLE. "I think that every day I wake up and I look at our beautiful daughter and think she is our tiny little miracle and it makes me cry because we were very, very lucky to have her."
She continued, "And there was every chance that we wouldn't have been able to have a little one, so to have our beautiful girl, we are so lucky. And I wish more people would pause before asking, 'Why aren't you having more children?'"
Irwin said that it can be “heartbreaking” to answer that question given her struggles with endometriosis.
“I feel like it is a universal question for women, which is heartbreaking because you never know what's going on in someone's life and what's happening behind closed doors," she explained. “And someone asking you, 'Why aren't you having more children? It's your responsibility to have more children.’ It breaks your heart because we all have a different journey and a different story.”
After spending several years dealing with fatigue, excruciating pain and nausea and undergoing countless tests and scans — the Animal Planet star said she was “tested for everything” — Irwin finally learned that she had the reproductive condition.
During a laparoscopy, Irwin said doctors found 37 lesions and a cyst on her ovary, which she then had removed via surgery.
Today, Irwin said she is still recovering, but feels so much better.
“It’s not like a light switch, but every week I feel like I’m able to do a little bit more. Now, I wake up in the morning, and I don’t have to take anti-nausea medicine or have my heat pack,” she told PEOPLE. “Being able to go for a walk with my daughter and not feeling like I have to throw up in the bushes is just wild to me.”
“I feel like I have a second chance at life,” she said, adding that she feels “brand new.”

Irwin frequently features her daughter — who spends lots of time with animals, just like her mom — on her Instagram.
The conservationist celebrated Grace’s birthday by sharing several photos of the family of three, alongside which she wrote, “Our TWO year old girl! Happy Birthday to my whole world,”
She continued, "Grace Warrior, you are the sunshine that fills our lives. Every day I am amazed by your hundreds of words and smiles, fascination for the natural world/every animal you discover and your adventurous soul."
“You see wonder in everything and remind me that the world is made of magic. Being your mama is the best part of my life. I love you with my entire heart, for all of my existence,” she concluded her message.
