The late "Crocodile Hunter" received a star on the famed Hollywood Walk of Fame and Irwin's family - Terri Irwin, Bindi Irwin, and Robert Irwin - were at the ceremony Thursday in Los Angeles to accept the star on his behalf.

"I found that if you put things off, pretty soon it just becomes an excuse. It's such an honor, as a family to continue on in dad's footsteps, and mom, you're fantastic, and together we will continue to fight for everything dad worked so hard for", she said.

She also shared an old family snap of them all with Steve, before his death, taking a moving trip down memory lane ahead of the ceremony.

She continued, "And to have his support, especially with this wonderful honour of the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame - he wrote a letter of recommendation - and it just meant the world to us as a family".

Steve was given the 2,635th star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, which celebrates the achievements of awesome individuals in entertainment.

In typical "Crocodile Hunter" fashion, the trio posed for photos at the newly minted star while holding a South American green anaconda named Angelina.

Bindi Irwin told ET Online she "cried through the whole time" and doesn't think "people realize how emotional it is". "We miss him so much".

Terri Irwin told the publication the event was "just so special". We never knew where we were going to go or what we were going to do. "I think they'll be next".

The family took to the podium to share an emotional tribute to Steve, and spoke about how the wildlife expert would have loved to be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
