Bindi's breakdown over new bub
Steve Irwin, the crocodile hunter, died in 2006 after a stingray pierced his heart.
“It’s hard knowing that she’ll never get to actually meet him and it’s devastating because I’ll never get to watch that connection,” Bindi said in a clip shared to Instagram on Sunday.
“I keep thinking how special it is that we’re standing here in the crocoseum, the place that dad loved more than anything anywhere else, feeding crocs, and spending time together as a family,” Bindi begins in the clip.View this post on Instagram
“It’s hard knowing that she’ll (Grace) never get to actually meet him and it’s devastating because I’ll never get to watch that connection.
“But I cannot wait to be able to tell beautiful Grace all these stories about dad, to be able to share with her what an amazing father he was. “
Bindi struggles to hold back tears and is comforted by her husband, Chandler Powell.
‘I think in a way he is still with us," she explains.
“It’s going to be really special for her to know him through us, to tell her about what an amazing man he was.
“Gosh, it is really hard.”
“It’s hard that he’s not here because out of everyone in the wild, he would have loved her the most. He would have loved her so much,” she added.
The teaser clip was posted to promote Discovery Channel's Crikey! It's a Baby! one-hour special.
It will be available to stream from Monday and will air on Animal Planet in Australia and New Zealand on May 22nd.
