The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced on Thursday that Steve Irwin will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018—and we couldn't be more happy for the late star and his family.
And just like us, his daughter Bindi Irwin is "beyond excited."
Taking to Twitter, the 18-year-old shared the sweetest flashback with her main man, penning, "Beyond excited to share with you all that we have just received news that Dad will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."

Bindi, Terri, and son Robert have dedicated their lives to continuing Steve's conservation work—a decision that wasn't made lightly.
"It was a conscious decision the trio made together while coming to terms with our grief a decade ago," Terri explained earlier this year. “When we lost Steve, it was a real crossroads of deciding if you’re just going to curl up in the corner or try to do something even bigger and better. The only way to honor Steve and his legacy and everything he lived for was to try to continue his work and expand on it.”
Inspiring words, Terri. We're so happy that Steve will be honored in such an amazing way.
