Sharing a picture of the pair on Instagram, Ms Irwin wrote: “Happy Birthday to the greatest dad and Wildlife Warrior.
“Today I’ll watch ‘The Crocodile Hunter’ with Grace Warrior and share stories about her incredible Grandpa Crocodile.
“I love you with all my heart. Your legacy lives on.”
Ms Irwin, who has followed in her father’s footsteps by becoming an environmentalist and TV personality, is married to Chandler Powell, with whom she shares a daughter, Grace.
