Any mother would be proud to see her daughter's kids, especially when the grandkids would be welcomed into a perfect family with loving parents like Bindi Irwin of "Crikey! It's the Irwins," and Chandler Powell.

Bindi and Powell exchanged their marital vows last year, and a few months later, they shared the sweet news of having the newest family member onboard.

Bindi's mom, wildlife warrior Terri Irwin is more than proud as she is on her way to becoming a grandmother in the coming weeks. During an appearance on TV, she proudly reflected on how she felt when the news first hit her.

Terri was joined by her younger child, 16-year-old Robert. She happily explained that her daughter is set to put to birth next month and that the expectant mom is doing "awesome."

The mother of two mentioned that her daughter waited for an outing—the family's yearly crocodile research trip, before revealing the big news.

For her, it was a sweet moment, and she made her way to Bindi for a warm hug. Months later, she finds herself reliving the moment while gushing about it. She said:

"She announced that she and Chandler were expecting...We all picked names. We all laughed and cried."

Robert was also sharing in the joyous mood, but he waited for his mother to finish before chiming in a light joke about his sister being "massive." The teenager playfully stated that his sister must not know about the joke.
