Bindi Irwin’s always been mature for her age. She appeared on her first wildlife TV show at two-years-old. At the age of eight, she delivered dad Steve Irwin’s eulogy in front of a crowd of 5,000. And in March she wed longtime boyfriend Chandler Powell in a small, family-only ceremony at Australia Zoo, where she and her family work.
Now, just four months later, 22-year-old Bindi has revealed she’s pregnant with her first child. She posted the announcement to Instagram, along with a picture of her and Chandler, 23, holding up an infant-sized Australia Zoo uniform. Awww! They’ve already picked the baby’s career!
Here’s the post.

Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021. 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. We couldn’t wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives. Your support means the world to us. Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes & prayers to our little sweetheart. Love & light. ❤️
Chandler commented “You’re going to be the best mother”, and posted the same picture with the caption:
We’re going to be parents!! We have a baby Wildlife Warrior on the way coming in 2021. Becoming a dad is the highlight of my life. I cannot wait to embark on this new adventure and life chapter with my gorgeous wife, @bindisueirwin. Bee, you’re going to be the most amazing mother.
Despite the fact I’ve never met Bindi, I’m only a decade her senior, and sometimes I straight up forget she exists, I’ve felt maternal towards her ever since her father’s tragic death. Which means I’ve got LOTS of opinions about how this pregnancy is gonna go…
First off, the gender reveal. Bindi shall feed her favorite Burmese Python a large rat whose guts have been specially dyed either pink or blue. Then, one week later, once the snake has digested its food, the color of his feces will reveal if it’s a boy or girl! Fuck your basic-ass cake reveals.
Secondly, the actual birth. Obviously it’s a water birth in one of the zoo’s swamps. When the baby is ready, it shoots outta Bindi, skids across the water, and immediately begins wrastlin’ a croc!
Finally, baby’s first photo shoot. Two words for you: kangaroo switcheroo. Bindi places a baby joey kangaroo in a fannypack around her waist. The momma kangaroo places Bindi’s baby in her skin pouch. Both babies poke their heads out. It’s all very cute, and, like the rest of these ideas, nothing could possibly go wrong. Money, please, Irwin family!
