Most of us will always think of Bindi Irwin as that cute little firecracker tagging along with her dad on the hit show ‘Crocodile Hunter.'
But that little girl is all grown up now - and she spent one very special day making sure everyone knows it!
On July 24th, Bindi said “YES!” To her boyfriend of six years, Chandler Powell. On the same day, the formerly ‘little Bindi’ turned 21!
The bride-to-be posted a heartfelt message to all her Twitter followers right after the proposal.
“On my birthday I said ‘yes’ & ‘forever’ to the love of my life.
“Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you & every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure & true happiness.
“Here’s to a lifetime of friendship, purpose & unconditional love❤️”
Not to be outdone by his brand new fiancée, Powell posted on Instagram and had this to say.
“She said YES! ❤️💍 Almost 6 years ago we met at Australia Zoo. I immediately fell head over heels for her kind and thoughtful heart that radiates so much light.
"Proposing in her very favorite place in the zoo, surrounded by animals, seemed like the perfect way to embark on this incredible new chapter in our lives.
“Bee, I love you more than anything in this world and I always will. Happy Birthday.”
Bindi is the daughter of the late Steve Irwin who passed away in 2006, at the age of 44, after being fatally wounded by a stingray while filming an underwater documentary.
Bindi was only eight years old when she lost her dad.
Since that time, she has carried on her father’s work along with her mom, Terri, and her younger brother Bob.
She has also done stints in acting, singing, dancing, game show housing, and has created two instructional fitness DVDs.
Bindi gained a whole new demographic of fans in 2015 when she won season 21 of the hit reality show ‘Dancing With the Stars.’
On Bindi’s big day, Bindi’s mom Terri and brother Bob spent the day with her and Chandler at the Australia Zoo.
The visit too the zoo was pre-planned for her birthday, but the surprise proposal was the icing on the cake, so to speak, for this birthday girl!
Please join us in wishing Bindi and Chandler a happy and long life together. We only wish her father could be there to share in the beautiful news.
We can just see her beloved daddy smiling down from heaven…Happy Birthday, Bindi Sue!!
