The daughter of the legendary Crocodile Hunter will appear on Season 21 of the reality competition show.

"Dancing with the Stars" has announced its latest celebrity contestant.

Bindi Irwin, daughter of the legendary Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, just revealed that she will compete on Season 21 of the reality competition show.

"I am absolutely thrilled. I can't tell you how excited I am," Irwin told People. "I think that it is going to be a truly unbelievable new experience. I can’t wait to see what is to come."

The 17-year-old, who'll be ditching the outdoors for the dance floor, also said, "The contrast will be huge. I'm a little scared but we will see what happens."

A full list of stars Irwin will be competing against is set to be announced over the next two weeks. However, it's been confirmed that dance veterans Derek Hough, Mark Ballas and Karina Smirnoff will definitely be returning as pros.

"DWTS" Season 21 premieres Sept. 14 on ABC.
