Bindi Thinks About Her Dad

“It’s hard knowing that she’ll never get to actually meet him and it’s devastating because I’ll never get to watch their connection. But, I can not wait to be able to tell beautiful Grace all of these stories about dad, to be able to share with her what an amazing father he was,” Bindi told Entertainment Tonight as she began to cry.

“It’s going to be…it’s going to be really special…It’s going to be really special for her to know him through us, to tell her about what an amazing man he was.”

“It is really hard. It’s hard that he’s not here because out of everyone in the world, gosh, he would have loved her the most,” Bindi added.

“He would have loved her so much. But I think in a way he is still with us. And his heart and soul lives on in all of us and, so yeah, he’s never really gone.”

Bindi Talks About What Kind Of Grandfather Steve Would Be

During her pregnancy, she opened up about what kind of grandfather Steve would have been to Grace. 

“He would’ve been a good, good grandpa. Yeah, he really would’ve been,” Bindi said.

“I don’t think we would’ve ever seen our daughter. He would’ve just whisked her away into the zoo and it would’ve been perfect. But it is so nice that we’ll be able to introduce her to her grandfather through all of the documentaries. It’s really special.”

Bindi’s mother Terri, Steve’s widow, agreed with her.

“He’d be over the moon,” Terri said. “I will say one thing for sure is you would never have to wonder what he would’ve worn during any of the milestones. He would’ve worn khaki to the wedding, khaki to everything.”

Bindi adores her mom and her mom’s grandmother nickname is “Bunny.”

“With my sweetheart mum being called ‘Bunny’ I had to include some woodland creatures in our nursery designs. Bunnies seemed like the perfect theme for our girl’s nursery,” Bindi said.
