Robert Irwin loves being an uncle! The 17-year-old conservationist took to Instagram on Wednesday to share photos of himself with his niece, Grace Warrior.
Robert’s sister Bindi Irwin welcomed the girl, who she shares with her husband, Chandler Powell, on March 25.
In one of the photos, Robert smiles at the camera while his niece sleeps in his arms. Another shot shows the teenager holding the newborn, while Bindi, Chandler and proud grandmother Terri Irwin look on. The final photo shows the smiles of Robert and Grace, while the excited uncle looks at the girl.
“Being Grace’s uncle is wonderful !!” Robert captioned his post. “I can’t wait to see this little warrior grow up and conquer the world. I think she will be in charge of the zoo in no time!”
“I am so honored to be able to share all the amazing experiences I had growing up in a zoo and teach you everything from rescuing wildlife to caring for our family of animals!” he added, referencing his family’s Australia Zoo.
Bindi was a fan of her brother’s post, writing, “Grace’s little smile in the last picture ❤️ For many wonderful adventures ahead. We love you!”
Chandler also chimed in, telling his brother-in-law that this is “the beginning of the best adventure.”
When ET spoke to the Irwins in February, prior to Grace’s birth, Robert expressed his joy at becoming an uncle.
“I’m so excited! I can’t wait to launch it with absolutely everything,” he said. “… She can have whatever she wants and do what she wants! It’s going to be amazing.”
