Of her Dancing With the Stars win, Bindi Irwin said she hopes her late father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, would be proud of this achievement.
“I couldn’t even imagine if [he] was here right now,” she told reporters following her big win. “Honestly, I hope that he’d be proud of me. And I hope that I am able to carry-on in his footsteps and make sure that his legacy lives on.”
“His strength is what keeps me going,” the new Dancing With the Stars champion added. “Life is filled with so many challenges and beautiful moments and to be able to share them with my family and the ones that you love the most. That’s what’s most important.”
