Never Before Seen Clip of Steve Irwin Has a Heartbreaking Message

Her famous Crocodile Hunter father Steve Irwin died tragically just over 10 years ago, when she was just eight years old.

And Bindi Irwin, now 19, has shared an emotional tribute to the late Australian icon on Monday, after viewing never-before-seen footage of her dad.

Bindi claimed she’d only seen the clip for the first time last week: ‘I don’t think I’ll ever be able to describe the amount of emotion in my heart once the video ended.’

The brief video showcased a sit-down interview with Steve, who gushed about his two children and his hopes for them to take over his wildlife conversation work.

When asked on tape if there was anything that would make him want to give away what he was doing, he responded without hesitation: ‘Yes, there is! When my children can take the football that I call wildlife conversation and run it up.’

‘When they’re ready to run up our mission, I will gladly step aside,’ he said, getting visibly teary as he passionately spoke of his young children.

‘And I guarantee you it will be the proudest moment of my life! My job will be done and then, and only then, will I know that I have achieved my ultimate goal – to be able to stand aside and let them run up my mission,’ Steve said with a wavering voice as he appeared to hold back tears.

Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin died aged 44 in 2006 after a freak sting ray accident at Batt Reef – a coral reef off Port Douglas.

Steve left behind widow Terri with two young children, Bindi, aged eight at the time, and son Robert, two-years-old at the time.

Bindi has spoken before of her grief at losing her father so suddenly, telling Sunday Style in 2015: ‘You never actually move on from it.’

‘As a little kid, I remember people coming up to me and saying, ‘I’m so sorry [for your loss], sweetheart, but time heals all wounds’,’ she told the publication.

‘There really isn’t a greater lie. It’s just not true. It’s like losing a part of your heart,’ she added.

Widow Terri Irwin recently claimed she hasn’t been on a date since meeting the former zookeeper in 1991.

Speaking to People Magazine on Wednesday, the 53-year-old admitted she wasn’t looking for a new partner, explaining: ‘I’ve already had my happily ever after.’

Terri fell in love with Steve in 1991 and wed eight months later.

The pair spent 14 years together before Steve died in 2006.

‘My dad is still very much my mum’s soulmate. And I think that no matter what, Mum always says that they’ll always be married,’ Bindi told E!’s Daily Pop.
