Bindi Irwin has opened up about her incredibly close relationship with her mum Terri Irwin in a thoughtful Instagram post.
The 18-year-old shared her sweet words just a few weeks shy of Mother's Day.
'Mother's Day is still a few weeks away but I just can't wait any longer to post this photo and share what a beautiful woman my mum truly is,' she began.
'Never in my life have I met someone as kind, patient and strong as my mum. Every day I watch her take on so much, caring for everyone around her and continuing my dad's legacy. That is no light task by any means.'
She continued: 'She runs Australia Zoo and continues all the important work of our nonprofit organisation Wildlife Warriors, on top of taking care of thousands of acres of conservation land and making sure Dad's work lives on.
'On top of all this, she is always there for both myself and my wonderful brother. I wish every day that there was a greater word than 'love', she really means everything to me. No matter what my question or problem, she has the answer. When I need a hug, her arms are always open. She makes me laugh and smile like no one else and she understands more about who I am than I do!
'I'm unbelievably blessed and grateful every single day to have a mum as breathtakingly gorgeous and kind-hearted as she is. I love you so much Mumma. Forever.'
Terri Irwin has raised her two children, Bindi and Robert, on her own his their father, Steve Irwin, passed away in 2006.
The family live together in Queensland.
