Bindi Irwin wrote a touching birthday message for her younger brother, Robert, who recently celebrated his 19th birthday. The note referred to Robert’s uncanny resemblance to their late father, Steve Irwin.

The birthday came a few days after the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner, held in Brisbane, Australia, on Nov 26. The event was dedicated to the iconic Australian zookeeper, who died on the 4th of September, 2006.
