Watch: Incredible “Dirty Dancing” performance by Bindi Irwin serves as a moving tribute to the late Patrick Swayze…
Like her renowned father, Steve Irwin, Bindi is a well-rounded individual who excels in many different areas.
Irwin became a household figure thanks to the program, which also popularized his catchphrase “Crikey!” and featured him wearing his trademark khakis throughout the series. The program was the one that held the record for the longest-running series on the Discovery Communications network, having lasted for 11 years until 2007.
In 1992, Steve wed Terri, and the couple later had their daughter Bindi in 1998 and their son Robert in 2003. But in 2006, disaster struck: while shooting an episode for “Ocean’s Deadliest” at the Great Barrier Reef, Steve was pierced in the heart by a short-tail stingray barb. Steve passed away as a result of his injuries.
Following in her late father’s footsteps, Bindi pursued a career in television and environmental activism.
She was the presenter of the children’s nature documentary “Bindi the Jungle Girl” when she was just nine years old. Even though Steve passed away before the program went on the air in 2007, he had already taped episodes of the show previous to his passing.
In 2015, she competed on “Dancing With the Stars” and made guest appearances on programs such as “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Larry King Live.”
Bindi became a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars” for the 21st season in the year 2015. She danced with Derek Hough. T
he couple’s sixth performance was set to the timeless tune “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” which was featured in the film “Dirty Dacing.” They were startled during their rehearsal by none other than Jennifer Grey, who had portrayed Baby in the 1987 movie.
Bindi and Hough immediately got down to work in an effort to master the well-known “lift” after receiving some words of encouragement from the audience.
Following yet another breathtaking performance that was devoted to Bindi’s late father, Bindi and Hough were ultimately crowned the winners of that season of the competition.
Bindi tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend, the former professional wakeboarder Chandler Powell, on March 25, 2020. In honor of Bindi’s family’s deep affection for animals, the couple chose to have their wedding ceremony in the grounds of Australia Zoo in Queensland.
Because it is the same facility that Bindi’s grandparents founded in the 1970s, the zoo is still owned by the Irwin family, despite the fact that it may seem strange and peculiar to some people. In reality, the whole Irwin family lives there together.
On March 25, 2021, Bindi and Chandler became parents for the first time to a little girl named Grace Warrior.
