SOME FACTS ABOUT BINDI

Bindi has been a staple on TV for a long time, starting out as a child star. She has had shows since she was a child, and she gained considerable popularity among kids.

Bindi is the first child of late wildlife lover Steve Irwin and his wife, Terri Irwin. Steve had named her after his favorite crocodile, Bindi. However, Bindi's name also means "little girl" in an Australian indigenous dialect.

INSIDE BINDI'S LOVE LIFE

It all started with her and Chandler meeting at her family's zoo. Chandler had been to a national wakeboarding competition in Australia, and he decided to take a trip to the Australia Zoo.

The timeline was 2013, and Bindi happened to be leading the zoo tour on the day they met. Chandler once shared that he had been in awe of her and simply thought she was amazing.

The two stayed in touch for two years after that before going public with their relationship. Chandler had also shown her love publicly when she competed on "DWTS."

In 2017, Chandler became a crocodile hunter, stamping his place during the family's annual crocodile research trip. He moved to Australia in 2018 and proposed to his lover the following year after she turned 21.
