Robert was on cloud nine on Thursday when Bindi and her husband Chandler Powell welcomed baby Grace. The 17-year-old celebrated the fantastic news with a heart-melting image of him cradling the infant. He gushed in the caption, writing:

"Let the uncle adventures begin! Love you so much, Grace. This little one picked the two best parents in the entire world."


He described his sister as a caring and strong mom and referred to his brother-in-law as fun, cool, and kind. Robert concluded the post, noting that he couldn't wait for the adventurous journey ahead of the family.

Fans may recall that Robert began his driving lessons last year with the help of his mother, Terri Irwin. In an October post that showed him and Terri in his father's truck, the "Crickey! It's the Irwins" star described his mom as the best instructor.


Bindi and Powell welcomed their bundle of joy on their first wedding anniversary, and it was indeed a double celebration for the new parents. In a post introducing their daughter to the world, Bindi marked the milestones.

The new mom revealed that they named Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. She shared that their daughter was named Grace after her great-grandmother and some of her husband's relatives from the 1700s.

As for the infant's unique middle name, Warrior Irwin, Bindi explained it was a tribute to her late father and his impressive legacy as a wildlife warrior. The doting mother concluded, praising Grace for choosing the perfect day to arrive.
