It's been 10 years since the Australian icon was tragically taken from the world too soon, killed by stingray's barb off the coast of Port Douglas.
Many remember Steve Irwin, 44, as the fearless Crocodile Hunter, but for wife Terri, he was the love of her life.
“To me, Steve was my Prince Charming. He was my happily ever after. I still feel immense love and loyalty to Steve,” the brave mother-of-two previously said of her soulmate.
Terri and Steve's children, Bindi and Robert, lost their dad and hero when they were just eight and three.
Their time with their father was too short and very sweet, but the pair have since honoured their dad's noble work by becoming wildlife warriors.
Both Bindi and Bob have followed in the footsteps of their beloved father, continuing his mission to protect all of the world's creatures and educate about the importance of conservation.
Speaking of how her father's tragic death affected her, Bindi has said: "It took a really long time to understand what actually happened. For the rest of my life, I'll kind of feel like he's going to come home."
"No matter where I go dad will always be with me. His spirit lives on. I wish he could fully understand just how much he’s done for me."
