Bindi Irwin - the daughter of the late, well-loved Australian wildlife presenter Steve Irwin - has touchingly recreated one of her mother's maternity photos as she awaits the birth of her first child.
Bindi, 22, posted a snap of her husband Chandler Powell, 24, kissing her baby bump, sharing it alongside an older picture of her and her father Steve kissing her mum Terri's pregnant belly prior to the birth of her younger brother Robert, now 17.
Bindi caption the picture: "Recreating a very special moment. Third trimester love."
Her followers were vocal in their praise for the moving pic.
One wrote: "Be right back, I'm crying now."
Another said: "Oh this is everything!!!!"
A third put: "Aww that's so cute."
Bindi and Chandler are expecting to welcome a baby daughter into the world within the next few months.
Announcing the news, Bindi wrote on Instagram: "Chandler and I are proud to announce that we're expecting! It's an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you.
"Though I'm still in my first trimester, we really want you to be part of our journey from the beginning of this new life chapter. We couldn't wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives.
"Your support means the world to us. Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes & prayers to our little sweetheart. Love & light."
The couple married in March last year in an intimate ceremony at Australia Zoo - just as many countries began to head into lockdown at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Posting on Instagram, Bindi said of the wedding: "We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now.
"We've planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn't have guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe.
"We wish all of our friends and family could have been there with us, however it's lovely that we will be able to share photos and videos.
"Right now we're encouraging the world to hold onto hope and love, which will carry us forward during this profound time in history.
"Today we celebrated life and revelled in every beautiful moment we shared together in our Australia Zoo gardens. Mum helped me get ready, Robert walked me down the aisle, Chandler became my husband and together we lit a candle in Dad's memory. We shared tears and smiles and love.
"Thankfully, since we all live at Australia Zoo as a family, we could be there for each other. To everyone reading this - stay safe, social distance and remember LOVE WINS!"
