The couple, who are currently expecting a daughter, their first child together, each took to their respective Instagram accounts, where they penned sweet messages for the occasion celebrating all of the women in their lives, including their baby girl.

As she counts down the days until she gives birth, the Crikey! It's the Irwins star, 22, shared a photo of herself and her mother, Terri Irwin, both delicately cradling her growing baby bump. Using the International Women's Day hashtag, she shared a quote honoring women, reading: "Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them." She tagged the Australia Zoo in the post, which marked the occasion in a post of its own honoring the two Irwin women as well as "adorable Elle the wombat."
