Just weeks after celebrating her first birthday, Bindi Irwin’s daughter Grace Warrior has taken her first steps at Australia Zoo.

Bindi and dad Chandler Powell were close by as their little girl toddled across the grass at the zoo for the first time, making sure to capture the moment on camera.

Clips shared to Instagram show Bindi sitting on the ground and encouraging Grace to take a few steps, waving at the camera and calling “hey dada” to Chandler.

The proud dad could be heard cheering his daughter on from behind the camera, saying “Good walking, good walking!”

Grace babbled happily as she took a few steps towards Bindi, before shifting gears and heading towards her dad.

Dressed in a blue patterned onesie, the grinning toddler seemed pretty sure on her feet already.

Bindi captioned the video “Big moment”, leading to a flood of supportive comments from friends and fans.

“Learning to walk in the #AustraliaZoo gardens. The cutest. 💚 We’re so proud of you Grace Warrior!” wrote the official Australia Zoo account.

Big Brother star Ellie Gonsalves chimed in: “Look at all that dark hair 🤍 such an angel. Can’t wait for that cheeky girl to be running around.”

Grace turned one on March 25, 2022, the same day as Bindi and Chandler’s second wedding anniversary.

It was a special occasion for the young couple, who have been making the most of married life and their first year of parenthood since Grace arrived.

Bindi marked the date with a throwback from her and Chandler’s wedding, captioning it: “Here’s to love beyond my wildest dreams.”

She also shared a series of photos to celebrate Grace turning one, gushing about the incredible bond she shares with her little girl.

“Happy Birthday to my graceful warrior. One year of watching your beautiful heart bloom into the most extraordinary person,” Bindi said.

“Grace, you have been an old soul from the very beginning. It is the greatest blessing to be your mama. I love you eternally, unconditionally and infinitely.”

As Grace grows up, fans have started to notice some striking similarities between her and her mother, as well as other members of the Irwin family.

Throwback photos of Bindi as a child, and of her father Steve Irwin, show that little Grace shares plenty of features with them both.
