Ahead of Grace's birth, Bindi spoke to The Bump about preparing for parenthood.

"I want to give our daughter the opportunity to experience as much as possible in the world to set her up for life," she told the outlet in February. "The greatest gift my parents ever gave me was their unconditional love and support. They encouraged me to travel my own path while always being there to lend support if I needed it."

"I can't wait to experience the magic of the world all over again through her eyes," added Bindi. "Watching her grow and find her own passions in life will be such a gift. My hope for her through life is that she follows her heart to do what she loves. She's going to be the most beautiful light in this world, it's a blessing that I'll get to support her on the journey that she chooses to take."
