Bindi Irwin appears on GMA to talk of loss of father and plans for the future

12/12/2006 at 12:31 AM ET

Little Bindi Irwin, who lost her father, the Australia Crocodile Hunter just over 3 months ago, bravely appeared on GMA on Friday. Bindi, 8, and her mother, Terri, spoke of the loss of Steve and Bindi’s hopes to carry on  his legacy.

On how they are coping:

"We’re doing pretty good. We’re battling. It’s one day at a time, but we’re still a family. Sometimes you wonder how you’re going to get through and in others you find a reason to be inspired again."

Bindi’s thoughts on her father:

"I can tell you that he was just great. He was always there with me by my side through thick and thin."

On Bindi’s connection with wildlife, like her late father:

"Just like Steve did, Bindi’s got that strange connection with wildlife. It’s beautiful to watch. It instills a real empathy within all of us. That’s a big part of our message today."

Terri, Bindi, Bob, 3, and Steve’s father, Robert, continue to run the Australia Zoo in Queensland, Australia, in Steve’s honour.

I caught parts of the interview with Bindi and Terri. She’s such a brave little girl, and obviously, very bright. Not to mention, she’s such a cutie…an absolutely adorable child! :-)

It is amazing what people can do for money… Everyone loved Steve Irvin and I’m sure that Bindi still misses him, but to let your 8 years old give interviews on such delicate subject I think is too much.
