Happy birthday, Bindi Irwin!

The daughter of the late Steve Irwin turned 20 on Tuesday and was showered with love from her family and friends.

“20 years ago our lives were blessed with the most perfect & wonderful little Bindi,” mom Terri Irwin, 54, tweeted alongside two side-by-side photos. “I’m thankful for you each and every day. I love you.”

Bindi soon responded, “I love you with all my heart, Mum. I’m so blessed to be your daughter. Thank you for being there for me every day for 20 years. You’re the real life Wonder Woman.”

Bindi’s brother Robert, 14, also shared a sweet tribute.

“Happy birthday Bindi!!! Wow. I can’t believe you are 20 today!” he tweeted. “You have achieved so much and your message of positivity and kindness is so inspiring. Thank you for being the best sister in the world, love you heaps! Today will be so fun.”

Of course, Bindi’s boyfriend Chandler Powell sent his love.

“Happy Birthday, @bindisueirwin! This will forever be my favourite day of the year,” he gushed. “Celebrating the one that I love, my life adventure buddy. The one who in her spare time can be found drinking tea, writing letters, and getting flowers for everyone she cares about. Bee, you are the strongest person I know and spread so much kindness every single day. You inspire me to be a better man and I thank my lucky stars for every moment we spend together. I love you. Happy birthday.”

“I’m beyond blessed to have you in my life,” Bindi replied on Twitter. “I love you.”
