Wildlife Warrior Bindi Irwin, 18, has just given her mother Terri Irwin a beautiful early Mother’s Day gift.

The former Dancing With The Stars winner took to Instagram to express just how much her mum means to her and how thankful she is of her ongoing support.

Warning: you might want to grab the tissues before reading on.

“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,” Bindi wrote. “Never in my life have I met someone as kind, patient and strong as my mum.

“I wish every day that there was a greater word than 'love', she really means everything to me,” she added.

“No matter what my question or problem, she has the answer. When I need a hug, her arms are always open,” Bindi said.

Bindi’s boyfriend – wake boarder Chandler Powell, 20 – is currently with Bindi and her family at Australia Zoo.

The couple have been dating for almost four years and enjoyed spending Easter together in Australia this year.

Bindi and Chandler have been dating for almost four years and enjoyed spending Easter together in Australia this year.

In an interview with The Today Show last week, Bindi joked about her late father Steve’s rules when it came to her dating boys.

“'He always said, ‘Before Bindi is allowed to date, the guy has to cross our toughest crocodile pond,’ so he has to swim across the pond,” she laughed.

“And we're all grateful Chandler is a wake boarder, so he can wake board across the pond,” she added.

By the looks of his Instagram, Chandler sure has taken to the role of being a Wildlife Warrior with ease.

We get the feeling there’s a lot of exciting adventure ahead for these two!
