Hard to believe that it's already been a year since Steve Irwin's daughter and environmentalist, Bindi Irwin, gave birth to her daughter, Grace Warrior.

Bindi, 23, and her 25-year-old husband Chandler Powell celebrated their first-born's birthday in a way you'd expect the Wildlife Warrior family - with animals from Australia Zoo.

"Happy Birthday to my graceful warrior. One year of watching your beautiful heart bloom into the most extraordinary person," Bindi posted on Instagram with a collection of photos. 

"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."

Proud dad Chandler also shared his own tribute to Instagram, writing, "It's been one year since you came into our lives and yet it feels like you've been with us forever. I never knew I had so much love to give. Happy first birthday sweetheart."

The family birthday celebration included turtles, inflatable crocodiles, and a fitting portrait of Grace's granddad and infamous Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin.

Australia Zoo also marked the occasion by opening a playground in Grace's name, 'Camp Grace'.

Grace's birthday is also the same date as Bindi and Chandler's second wedding anniversary.

They grow up so fast!
