Bindi Irwin paid tribute to her late father, Steve Irwin, in her latest Instagram post.

Irwin and her husband Chandler Powell are expecting their first child this year after getting married in March 2020.

The mom-to-be is in her third trimester, and to mark the occasion, Irwin and Powell re-created a sweet photo her family took when her mom, Terri Irwin, was pregnant with her younger brother, Robert.

In the original photo, Steve and Irwin kissed Terri's belly. In the re-creation, Irwin stood just as her mom did while Powell kissed her stomach.

"Recreating a very special moment," Irwin captioned the Instagram post. "Third trimester love."

Irwin looks just like her mother in the picture, as she cradles her belly in the exact same way as her.

To make the photo even sweeter, Powell was also wearing khaki shorts and a matching top in the photo, just like Steve did in the original picture.

The 22-year-old wildlife conservationist often nods to her family's history, incorporating their traditions into her life milestones. For instance, she picked a wedding dress that "mimicked" her mom's gown.

And when she decided her brother would walk her down the aisle at her wedding, she wrote her father an open letter in an Instagram post, saying: "I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us."

Irwin and Powell announced their pregnancy in August, just five months after they tied the knot.

The couple have been keeping their fans updated throughout the pregnancy on social media, sharing that they were having a girl in September and posting frequent updates about the size of the baby compared to animals.

In a recent post, Powell shared a photo of Irwin wearing one of his uniform shirts, writing that her top "isn't buttoning over her gorgeous bump."

The couple, who have been together since they were teens, seem to be thrilled about becoming parents.

After getting engaged on Irwin's 21st birthday, the couple had to change their wedding plans as a result of the coronavirus.

They tied the knot at Australia Zoo, where they both work, in an impromptu ceremony with no guests on March 25.
