Crikey! Bindi Irwin Gets Engaged On 21st Birthday

By Gary Trock

The late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin's daughter is celebrating two major milestones -- she turned 21 and she said yes to a proposal!

Bindi Sue Irwin announced her engagement on Wednesday to longtime boyfriend, Chandler Powell.

While revealing the news, Bindi said, "On my birthday I said ‘yes’ and ‘forever’ to the love of my life. Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness."

Bindi wrote to her future husband, "I’m so looking forwarding to spending our forever together as your wife. Here’s to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love."

Not wanting to wait any longer to become husband and wife, Bindi urged, "Now let’s get married already!"

Chandler also wrote about how happy he was to be marrying the love of his life, and reflected on when they first met ... which of course was at the Australia Zoo.

"I immediately fell head over heels for her kind and thoughtful heart that radiates so much light."


Chandler actually popped the question at the zoo, and explained, "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."

Addressing his wife-to-be, Chandler promised, "Bee, I love you more than anything in this world and I always will."

He also wished her a "Happy Birthday."


Chandler, who hails from Florida, is already welcomed into the family of Australian wildlife conservationists.

Bindi's mom, Terri, gushed about the engagement on social media and even gave a blessing on behalf of their famous patriarch, who passed away in 2006.

"Best day ever!" she wrote, adding, "Chandler asked and beautiful [Bindi] said yes. I am so very happy, and I know Steve would be too. Congratulations!!"
