Bindi Irwin, 20,  opened up about her father Steve Irwin’s death this summer, revealing that watching footage of him still causes her to tear up.

Almost 13 years since his tragic death in 2006, his daughter Bindi has revealed in an interview with Stellar Magazine that watching footage of her father can sometimes move her to tears. 

“It was just an ordinary day and we were playing the video where we petition against harvesting of crocodile eggs,” she told the publication. “There’s old footage of dad with the crocodiles and, even though I’ve seen the video maybe 50 times, that day I started crying.”

Bindi said that grief was something she feels more on some days and less on others. 

“What gets to me are those moments when I’d love him to be here to share what we’re doing,” she added.

“It could be when my brother is receiving an accolade for his photography, or it might be at the end of the day when we’re having dinner and laughing. I’ll think: ‘I wish Dad was here for this.’ But he’s just not there.”

Steve Irwin died on September 4, 2006 at the age of 44, when working on an underwater film titled Ocean’s Deadliest after being attacked by a short-tail stingray. 

“I remember people coming up to me and saying, ‘I’m sorry for your loss, sweetheart. Time heals all wounds,’ ” she told People magazine in December. 

“But that’s just not true. It’s like losing a part of your heart, and when you’ve lost that, you never get it back.”
