Bindi Irwin just welcomed her first child into the world, and decided to honor her late father with a unique name for the baby girl!
Steve Irwin’s daughter gave birth on March 25, 2021, which also happens to be the first wedding anniversary of her and her husband, Chandler Powell.
The ‘Crikey! It’s the Irwins’ star shared a heartwarming photo of the beautiful baby — along with announcing the baby’s name — Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. The word ‘Warrior’ is to honor her late father who was famous for his wildlife television show, and passed away while working with animals.

“March 25, 2021. Celebrating the two loves of my life. Happy first wedding anniversary to my sweetheart husband and day of birth to our beautiful daughter. ❤️ Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s. Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior,” Bindi captioned the baby photos!
She continued, “Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad. There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl. She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed.”
