It's been 11 years since Australian legend Steve Irwin tragically died in an accident that shook the nation to its core. Steve's legacy lives on in his children, Bindi, 19, and Bob, 14, and in June his eldest child sweetly paid tribute to her father on what have been his 26th wedding anniversary with his beloved wife, Bindi's mum, Terri Irwin.
Taking to social media to mark the milestone, Bindi shared a gorgeous photo of her late dad and her mum embracing. The young conservationist captured the photo: "Soul mates. Forever. Happy Anniversary to my incredible parents. I love you so much."
Terri retweeted her daughter's message which also went out on Twitter saying, "Thank you beautiful @BindiIrwin. It was 26 years ago today that I began my happily ever after."
Forever in their hearts. Bindi shared this beautiful photo of her mum and dad on what would have been their 26th wedding anniversary.
Terri continued to leave notes to Steve on social media on their anniversary. She responded to another post writing, "Thank you for sharing Steve's message and keeping his legacy alive. While I miss him every day, I am so proud to be able to continue his work."
Steve found the love of his life in Terri (nee Raines). After eight months of dating, they tied the knot in June 1992. "We got 14 years of marriage; we had the best most fantastic adventurous wonderful life that you could imagine," Terri said of their time together.
To celebrate their everlasting love, and their incredible life's work, we take a look at Steve and Terri's relationship in pictures.
Terri and Steve were married in June 1992.
"I found Steve's passion for wildlife and willingness to lay his life on the line so exciting," says Terri.
In 1998, Terri and Steve welcomed their first daughter Bindi Sue Irwin.
"My dad is still very much my mum's soul mate. And I think that no matter what, mum always says that they'll always be married," daughter Bindi has said in recent years.
In 2003, the couple welcomed their son, Robert. Little Bob was just three years old when his dad lost his life.
Steve passed down his love of animals to his children.
Steve's oldest daughter Bindi says her dad is "always in our hearts."
Steve and Terri took their little family everywhere they went.
While Steve loved his reptiles, he loved Terri a whole lot more.
Now, Bindi and Bob take every opportunity to pay tribute to their heroes, their mum and dad.
