Steve Irwin: Wife Terri pays tribute on Thanksgiving
The late Steve Irwin is being remembered by his family this Thanksgiving.
10 years after the world-famous Crocodile Hunter star died at 44 after being attacked by a stingray while filming a documentary in his native Australia, his wife Terri took to Twitter to honor their history together.
“Thankful,” wrote Terri, who told The Australian Woman’s Weekly in August that she hasn’t been on a single date since Steve’s death. “14 years of adventure and two beautiful children. Thank you to all @wildwarriors keeping Steve’s legacy alive. #Thanksgiving.”
Terri included a throwback snap of the couple with their two children, Bindi and Robert, who are now 18 and 12, respectively. The family of four is pictured on a boat during an outing on the water. Donning his signature khaki ensemble, Steve leans into his family while lighting up with a big smile.
Bindi shared a throwback photo of her own on Nov. 15, which is known as Steve Irwin Day. “Celebrating Dad’s life and legacy with Steve Irwin Day this November 15th @australiazoo Encouraging everyone to wear a touch of khaki on this amazing day to remember all that Dad did for our world, inspiring us all to love wildlife and wild places. Thank you.”
On Sept. 3 — the 10-year anniversary of Steve’s death — Bindi posted a touching tribute on Instagram. “You’ll be my hero for my entire existence,” she captioned a photo of him holding her when she was a baby. “I love you more than words can describe.”
