Crocodile hunter Steve Irwin’s daughter names firstborn after him

Conservationist Bindi Irwin has honoured her late father — Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin — by giving her newborn daughter the middle names Warrior Irwin.

They said she was born on Thursday, on the anniversary of their marriage at Australia Zoo.

“Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light,” Irwin, 22, wrote on social media.

“Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s.

“Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior.

“Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad.

“There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl. She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed.”

Powell said his daughter would be “surrounded by a whole lot of love”.
