Bindi Irwin shared an emotional Instagram post where she celebrated her mother, Terri, in honor of her birthday on July 20. The wildlife conservationist posted a sequence of four images where Terri was honored for the many hats she wears, including mother, businesswoman, and operator of the Australia Zoo. Bindi penned a paragraph to honor her mom, sharing with the world all the reasons Terri is most special to her.
In the accompanying caption to the share, Bindi said that Terri would always be her "Sarah Connor." The iconic character was the heroine of the Terminator films and was originally portrayed by actress Linda Hamilton. Bindi said that her mom was born "with a purpose" and showed her how to be a "woman warrior." Terri is the wife of the late star of the Crocodile Hunter television series and operator of the zoo founded by her husband, the late, Steve Irwin. The couple also shared a son, Bob.
In the first slide, Terri was photographed during her daughter's wedding to Chandler Powell. The couple married in a small ceremony attended by immediate family and friends on March 25. Bindi and Chandler's original plans to wed were aborted due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the pic, the women looked lovely in their wedding attire. Terri wore a stunning blue dress. The top of the garment was plain and had a sateen finish. It featured a high collar and long sleeves that brushed the tops of her hands. The bottom of the gown was the same hue and featured a series of pastel-colored flowers.
