Crickey! Bindi Irwin Announces Pregnancy with Adorable Family Photo

A brand-new "baby wildlife warrior" is on the way! That's right, congratulations are in order for Bindi Irwin and husband Chandler Powell as they are expecting their first child together.

Irwin announced the exciting news on Instagram Tuesday morning alongside a photo of herself and Powell holding up a miniature-size zoo uniform.

The 22-year-old captioned the post, "Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021."

She continued, "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."

The Crickey! It's the Irwins star even called on fans and supporters for advice. "Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes & prayers to our little sweetheart. Love & light."

Powell responded to the Instagram post with a supportive comment of his own: "You're going to be the best mother."

The couple tied the knot back in March in an intimate ceremony at Australia Zoo. Although they were supposed to exchange vows in front of a large group of friends and family, they were forced to cancel their plans due to coronavirus restrictions. Still, that didn’t stop them from holding a small ceremony that had no guests but paid tribute to Bindi’s late father, Steve Irwin (also known as The Crocodile Hunter).

Sending their little warrior lots of light and love indeed.
