HER'S was the cherub face that moved the world after her father, Steve Irwin, was killed by a stingray almost six years ago.
But Bindi Irwin is growing up fast.
Today host Lisa Wilkinson tweeted a picture of the star from Woman's Day that shows she's gone from a little girl to a savvy teen.
Bindi, who is weeks away from her 14th birthday, became the face of her father's animal empire after his death. Her eulogy at his memorial service was watched by more than 300 million viewers around the world.
In an interview with Woman's Day, Bindi talks about her return to Australian TV but she also opens up about her father and dating.
She tells the magazine she isn't preoccupied with boys - yet.
"Well, I have friends that are girls and friends that are boys - why complicate things? I'll wait a couple of years for that," she says.
Having spent much of her life on screen, she says she is thankful to have so many memories of her father captured on camera.
"We are lucky enough to have taken part in so many adventures. Sometimes you might forget them, so to be able to rewind and look back is nice. Every morning we will put on a 'Daddy DVD' and bring back fond memories."
Bindi's new wildlife-themed show, Bindi's Bootcamp, for ABC3, begins this Saturday..
The show puts contestant through a series of "adventure challenges" that tests their wildlife knowledge.
