She added: “There are no words to describe the amount of love in my heart for them both.”

In the video, Steve expressed, “The most incredible wildlife encounter of my life was the birth of my daughter Bind. Here's this little baby girl. I swear she just fitted right in here in the palms of my hands. It was a combination of adrenaline and just emotion."

The “Crocodile Hunter” continued: "It was like a euphoric feeling. I was in total utopia. And I ran around the hospital. 'Look at this! Look at this!' And they're like, 'Yes, we've got our own.' 'Yeah, but you haven't got one like this one! Look at this little beauty! Look at this little beauty!' I'm showing everyone. The nurses, the other ladies that have just given birth. And they're like, 'Oh, crikey.'

"I am the proudest father on the face of the earth. No doubt," he concluded.
