, , , , ,

Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, widely known as the “Crocodile Hunter,” has announced that she and her husband, Chandler Powell, are expecting their first child together.

Bindi and Chandler, both active in wildlife careers, each shared an image to their Instagram pages wearing khaki button-up shirts and held up a tiny shirt to announce the news. They each referred to their new baby as a “Wildlife Warrior” and revealed their little one is due in 2021.

The couple, who met six years ago at the Australia Zoo, tied the knot this past March after becoming engaged in 2019. Bindi and Chandler were wed in an intimate ceremony with immediate family. While they had spent time planning a more extravagant wedding, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the couple had to change their plans. Nevertheless, they shared a beautiful day together as they became husband and wife. We wish them lots of love for their next adventure into parenting!

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”.
