Bindi Irwin Grows Up On 'People' Cover; Reflects on Crocidile Hunter Father's Legacy

Bindi Irwin graces the new issue of People mag, out on news stands this Friday, July 25th.

The 16-year-old conservationist and budding actress opened up about losing her father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, at such a young age in 2006.

“I remember after we lost Dad, so many adults came up to me and said, ‘Honey, time heals all wounds,’” she recalled. “That is the biggest lie you will ever hear. It doesn’t. That kind of sadness never goes away. It’s like losing a piece of your heart that you never get back.”

Bindi continued, “When you lose a loved one, you come to these crossroads. You can take the path that leads you down the aisle of sadness, or you can say, ‘I’m never going to let this person’s memory die. I’m going to make sure everything they worked for continues.’”

Bindi is also pictured below with brother Robert and mom Terri during her 16th birthday celebrations at Australia Zoo in Queensland on Wednesday afternoon (July 23).
