Pass the tissues pls.

Bindi Irwin has shared a video of dad, Steve Irwin, to Twitter -- and it's hit everybody in the feels.

"Every time I watch this clip my heart overflows with emotion," Bindi captioned the clip.

"The people we love are always with us. Love lives on no matter what and I think that is the most beautiful thing about our existence Thank you, Dad, this moment captured on camera made my whole life."

In a snippet shown for an episode of Australian story, the late croc hunter is seen gushing about being a father to young Bindi, accompanied by a video of wife Terri going into labour with Bindi.

"I never really wanted to be a dad, I couldn't really give a rip," the 44-year-old said in the video. "And now I'm the proudest father, I gotta tell ya."

"I can't dwell on her for too long or I start bawling my eyes out," he continued. "When I got into the field, mate, I have a photo of me and my daughter, and I just sit there and start crying just looking at her."

"Who would have thought someone as ugly as me could bring something into the world that is something so beautiful, such a treasure?"

The emotional video shows Steve looking in wonder and adoration at his newborn baby girl, followed by snippets of Bindi as a child helping out her dad at his much-loved Australia Zoo.

Wearing the zoo's khaki uniform, an adorable Bindi is then seeing telling someone off camera, “No one else can go in. Do you know why? 'Cos it’s my zoo, I’m going to run it someday!”

The clip was enough to send social media into an emotional mess, with many telling the 20-year-old that her father would be "so proud" of her and her dedication to continuing his legacy.

Steve died on September 4, 2008, after a stingray's serrated barb pierced his heart while he was filming underwater off Australia's coast. Bindi was just eight years old, while Terri and Steve's second child, Robert, was nearly three years old.

To this day, the Irwin family still call Australia Zoo home, with their house located on the zoo's property.

“After school, I’ll go around on my scooter and jump in with the tortoises to say ‘g’day!’ or wrangle some snakes,” Robert told PEOPLE in December. “Every day is a new adventure.”

The trio continues to work hard to maintain carry on Steve's work, with Bindi saying that her father wanted people to 'remember his message.'

“Dad always said that he didn’t care if people remembered him, as long as they remembered his message,” says Bindi. “Every day we work with the beautiful animals at Australia Zoo and do the best we can possibly can to ensure dad’s dreams and goals continue.”
