In honor of her 22nd birthday, Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, shared an emotional video of her father speaking on the joys of fatherhood.

Bindi, who turned one year older on July 24, shared a short clip of Steve, who died in September 2006, beaming about her birth.

“22 years ago my parents decided to start a family,” Bindi wrote in the video’s caption. “I will forever be grateful for their unconditional love and encouragement to follow my dreams. I chose the two most compassionate, dedicated and loving people in the world to be my mum and dad. There are no words to describe the amount of love in my heart for them both.”

In the video, Steve shares what his most memorable experience was.

“The most incredible wildlife encounter of my life was the birth of my daughter Bindi,” he says. “Here’s this little girl. I swear she just fitted right in here in the palms of my hands … it was a combination of adrenaline and just emotion.”

Steve then goes on to talk about the emotions he felt.

“I was just … It was like a euphoric feeling,” he says. “I was in total utopia. And I ran around the hospital. ‘Look at this! Look at this!’ And they’re just like, ‘Yes, we’ve got our own.’ Yeah, but you haven’t got one like this one. ‘Look at this little beauty!’ I’m showing everyone, the nurses, the other ladies that have just given birth.”

The footage ends with a heartwarming note from the late zookeeper: “I am the proudest father on the face of the earth.”

Bindi’s post has since received over 200,000 likes and more than 6,000 comments.

  • TikTok's 'lawyer mom' shares powerful advice for students dealing with police on campus

    The TikToker, who goes by the nickname “Lawyer Mom” online, shared her advice in a video that now has more than 1.7 million views. Lawyer Mom, who’s real first name is Susu, begins her video by reminding students to always stay “calm, cool and collected,” when they encounter an officer. She then emphasizes the right to remain silent, and adds that students can refuse when an officer asks to search their phone. “It’s possible the officer will still search you even though you don’t give consent,” she adds. “But it will protect your rights if you end up in court”. Susu explained that she started the Lawyer Mom account back in May — and now has more than 430,000 followers. “I was a little hesitant because it’s so hard to explain the law under ONE minute, people are also from all over the U.S. and state laws vary from state to state,” she said. “But I decided to give it a try, at least to engage people and start a conversation about various legal issues”. Many Tiktokers took to Susu’s comments to thank her for the help. “I wish you were my mom,” one wrote. “I’ve learned so much from you. Thank you”
