CELEBRATING HER PARENTS
The clip also revealed her parents, including mother Terri, playing with her over the years until she grew old enough to ride a bicycle with her father. Bindi captioned her post writing: “22 years ago my parents decided to start a family.”
She continued noting that she would “forever be grateful” for her parent’s “unconditional love” and their “encouragement to follow my dreams.” Touching on her beliefs she shared how she’d chosen “the two most compassionate, dedicated and loving people in the world.”
HUSBAND WISHES HER HAPPY BIRTHDAY
She wrapped things up by stating how she didn’t have the words to “describe the amount of love in my heart for them both.” Bindi’s husband, Chandler Powell, also took to Instagram to wish his wife a happy birthday.

He noted how it was the first time he got to wish her a happy birthday as husband and wife. Powell revealed how “epic” the year had been and that his wife had managed to handle everything thrown at them with “courage and grace.”
