After months of speculation and fans hoping for an engagement announcement, Steve Irwin’s eldest daughter, Bindi, is engaged to her boyfriend of six years. Chandler Powell proposed to the 21-year-old on her birthday last Tuesday.

A STEP CLOSER TO FOREVER

Irwin shared the good news on her Instagram account, which included two photos of the newly engaged couple and a penned letter to her fiancee. She wrote:

“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. I’m so looking forward to spending our forever together as your wife.”

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

Fellow animal lover Instagram accounts also congratulated Irwin for her engagement, including Australia Zoo, which is owned by the Irwin family. Powell previously professed his unconditional love for Irwin during an interview with Lauren Zima.

He shared how much happiness his fiancee has given him, and how honorable it is to “work for Steve’s legacy” together with his daughter, whom he referred to as the “most beautiful girl in the world.”
