The proud mother revealed that she was celebrating the two loves of her life on March 25 — her husband and her daughter — before opening up about the special names they chose for their baby girl. She wrote:
"Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother and relatives in Chandler's family dating back to the 1700s."
Bindi shared the unique meanings behind Grace's middle names, Warrior and Irwin, saying it was a special tribute to her late father, Steve Irwin. She explained that it honored her dad's legacy as a wildlife warrior.
Last month, Bindi revealed that she and Powell wouldn't name their daughter until she arrived.
She noted that Grace took her father's last name and his kind heart before talking about the overwhelming love she feels at having her daughter in arms. She concluded, praising baby Grace for arriving at the perfect time.
Other members of the Irwin Clan, her brother Robert Irwin and her mother Terri Irwin took to social media to celebrate the newest addition's arrival. Robert shared a photo of him doting on his niece.
In the caption, he gushed about the exciting journey of becoming an uncle while congratulating Bindi and Powell. First-time grandmother Terri confessed that she was ecstatic and hopeful that her granddaughter would continue Steve's legacy.
Last month, Bindi revealed that she and Powell wouldn't name their daughter until she arrived. However, she did note that her late dad influenced the fun nickname, "Baby Wildlife Warrior," which would eventually be reflected in her name.
After years of dating, Bindi and Powell walked down the aisle on March 25, 2020, in an intimate ceremony at the Australia Zoo. She shared a photo of the secret nuptials on social media. Congratulations to the couple.
