Aww! Sounds like Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough are still very close!
Weeks after the duo won the latest season of Dancing With The Stars, it's been revealed that the 17-year-old found a special way of remembering him…
By naming an adorable koala after him upon her return to Australia!

What's even sweeter though, is that Bindi revealed the real Derek will soon be joining her down under, too! She shared:
"I am excited because Derek will be visiting Australia very soon to meet his own name sake."
That's going to make for one epic selfie!
Until then, the Australia Zoo gave their very own Derek Hough a close-up on their Instagram on Thursday:
Yup. He's just as cute as the real thing!
