Reality star Bindi Irwin took to Instagram to pay special tribute to her spouse Chandler Powell. Irwin gushed over the father to be on Valentine’s Day.
Environmentalist Bindi Irwin wrote a lovely message to her husband Chandler Powell, revealing how long they have been together. The 22-year-old praised him in the process.
“Over seven years of loving this handsome guy. My forever Valentine and incredible husband. @chandlerpowell,” she captioned her post.
CELEBRATING VALENTINE’S DAY
The snapshot shows the pair posing alongside a mural that reads: “Let’s give them something to taco ‘bout,' along with a taco paint beside the graphic. The wall is white and has blueish and greenish colors on it.
High-rise windows are also visible from the photo as Irwin appears while holding on to Powell. The picture also shows Irwin resting her hand on his stomach while gazing at him.
Irwin wore brown boots with denim jeans and a black sweater. She wore her blonde locks down while smiling at Powell, who also blushed at his wife.
The 24-year-old wore black shoes with jeans and a blue sweater. Powell held onto Irwin with his left arm and held her closer to his chest.
The wakeboarder also noted a special tribute to his wife on his Instagram account. The heartwarming message reads as follows:
“My Valentine every year. How you have handled this past year is incredible. Each day I am amazed by you and feel like the luckiest man to be alive to be your husband.”
AWAITING THEIR FIRST CHILD’S ARRIVAL
As they continue to show their affection for each other, they also have a lot to celebrate besides that union. The pair are expecting their first child, a baby girl.
They first announced that they are expecting their first child on social media back in August, just after months after walking down the aisle on March 25. They are reportedly due to welcome their bundle of joy next month.
Last month, Irwin gave her followers a sneak peek at her daughter’s nursery, which had a cuddly bunny motif as she posed beside a white drawer while cradling her baby bump. She also updated her fans on social media when she reached 26 weeks of gestation.
THEIR SWEET LOVE STORY
As they prepare to become first-time parents, we look at how it all began for the young couple. According to E! Online, the duo dated for almost six years before making their relationship official.
Powell reportedly popped the big question on Irwin's 21st birthday. Irwin accepted her longtime partner’s proposal and shared the exciting news with her 4.4 million followers at the time.
Powell also took to Instagram and revealed that he met Irwin at an Australian Zoo. The Florida native added that he instantly fell head over heels for her kind and thoughtful heart when he met the television personality.
Seeing that Irwin is an animal lover of note, her husband added that proposing to her in Irwin's favorite place, the zoo, surrounded by animals, was befitting to start their new journey together. Powell and Irwin first met in 2003.
At the time, he was visiting her home country as part of the national wakeboarding competition. Irwin, whose family lives and works at the Zoo, just so happened to be the tour he was on.
