"You are the most kind-hearted person, caring mama, loving wife and my best friend. I love you (and so does Grace) ❤️."

Bindi, who was also debuting a completely new look, shared her own post, writing, "The last year has been filled with enormous growth, unpredictable/challenging times and above all, love beyond my wildest dreams. Without them realising, my sweet family has given me the greatest gifts this year through their extraordinary actions each and every day."

She then thanked her family individually, writing, "My mum, the gift of perseverance, strength and a shoulder to lean on. My brother, the gift of enthusiasm for life and remembering not to sweat the little things. My husband, the gift of steadfast support and infinite kindness.

"My darling daughter, the gift of finding beauty in all things and running towards happiness (and bubbles, which are the same thing to her) with an open heart."

She added, "I’m grateful for another trip around the sun and another year to do my best making difference in this world. Thank you to everyone who is part of my journey, I’m tremendously thankful for you."
