Bindi Irwin Announces She’s Expecting A Baby Wildlife Warrior With Husband Chandler
Congrats are in order for Bindi Irwin, 22, and her husband Chandler Powell, 23, with the couple announcing they’re expecting a “baby wildlife warrior” sometime next year.
Alongside a photo of the pair holding a mini Australia Zoo button-up, Bindi wrote: “Chandler and I are proud to announce that we’re expecting! It’s an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you. Though I’m still in my first trimester, we really want you to be part of our journey from the beginning of this new life chapter.”

Bindi, who is the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, went on to say she couldn’t wait to share the news, and that their fans’ support means the world to the couple. “Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes & prayers to our little sweetheart. Love & light,” she finished. Chandler took to the Instagram comments to write: “You’re going to be the best mother.”
Bindi met Chandler, a former wakeboarder from Florida, at the Australia Zoo six years ago. The couple got engaged last July on Bindi’s 21st birthday at her favourite spot in the zoo. “July 24th 2019. On my birthday I said ‘yes’ and ‘forever’ to the love of my life,” she wrote at the time.
The couple were married this past March just after lockdown restrictions were announced. As a result, the ceremony was unfortunately limited to just a few witnesses.
“Chandler, When I went to write my vows I found I couldn’t stop writing them,” Bindi wrote at the time. “I started by sharing all the ways you make my life beautiful and wrote close to a thousand words. Then I moved on to write about what an extraordinary person you are and I needed a new pen.”
Chandler, When I went to write my vows I found I couldn’t stop writing them. I started by sharing all the ways you make my life beautiful and wrote close to a thousand words. Then I moved on to write about what an extraordinary person you are and I needed a new pen. Finally I wanted to share all my hopes for the future and I ran out of notebook paper. I thought about how there is no way to describe genuine, unconditional love. A love like this is meant to be felt, in every part of our soul. Marriage marks an incredible beginning and yet I feel like we’ve already experienced so much life together. We say all the time that it feels like we’ve been married for years. We’ve been a team through life’s wonderful highs and difficult lows. You’ve held my hand as we’ve run towards every new adventure. My dad used to say that I couldn’t marry anyone unless he could swim across the croc pond first. And now, here you are, helping us during our regular crocodile demonstrations. One of your jobs is to jump into the water with our biggest crocs to help encourage them home! They say there’s a moment when you know you’ve fallen in love with someone, for me it was watching you happily jump in the water with a 15 foot crocodile and then tell me how much you enjoyed it. You are my soulmate. I promise to love you with all my heart through every twist and turn the world brings our way. I promise to encourage your dreams and help you achieve them. I promise to stand beside you as your wife, teammate and friend. I promise to share an ‘I love you’ before I sleep each night no matter what our day has brought. I promise to be your strength and light when you need a it. I promise to revel with you in each breathtaking moment we are given in this life. Chandler, Thank you for loving me for me. You love me when I’m uncontrollably laughing or falling asleep by 6pm. You validate what unconditional love really means. You’ve been my best friend for over six years. You’ve made me smile every day since I first met you. That’s amazing and so are you. My husband, my teammate and partner in conservation. To quote our favourite show, “I love you and I like you”.
