She looks so grown up!
Bindi Irwin and her mother Terri pose with an adorable kangaroo during an interview on Good Morning America, Tuesday.
The 12-year-old, the daughter of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, was promoting a new line of books in her Wildlife Adventures series.
Speaking of her father, the young actress said:
"We want to carry on in his footsteps, where he left off."
As most of us remember, Steve was killed in September 2006 after getting stung by a stingray while filming in Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
At his funeral, Bindi had the
balls pig tales to make a speech in front of 5,000 people in a worldwide television broadcast watched by more than 300million viewers.
Bindi really is an incredible kid. It's a shame her mom is making her peddle these books around to save the family business.
Steve's widow Terri has been forced to sell off parts of their multi-million property empire.
The Queensland floods impacted badly on tourism, which affected the Irwins' Australia Zoo.
Mother of two Terri, 46, who also has a young song Robert, also admitted a wet summer affected visitor numbers and forced job cuts.
