There is also an alligator next to the ‘graceful warrior’ text, which is a reference to Daisy the alligator who lives at Australia Zoo.

‘The words I spoke to our daughter as I held her for the first time in my arms were, “My graceful warrior,”‘ Bindi told her 4.8 million Instagram followers. 

‘That’s how her name was born. This is my dad’s handwriting to keep him with me, always. Our dear alligator Daisy is next to these words to represent our conservation work as Wildlife Warriors.’
