Bindi Irwin Announces Engagement On Her 21st Birthday

Bindi Irwin has announced that she's engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Chandler Powell.

Chandler popped the question on Bindi's 21st birthday, nearly six years after the pair first met at Australia Zoo.

"On my birthday I said ‘yes’ and ‘forever’ to the love of my life," Bindi wrote next to a photo of her with her new fiance.

Powell, who is originally from Florida, made the permanent move to Australia in 2018 and works at the zoo along with Bindi, Robert and Terri Irwin.

I immediately fell head over heels for her kind and thoughtful heart that radiates so much light. Proposing in her very favorite place in the zoo, surrounded by animals, seemed like the perfect way to embark on this incredible new chapter in our lives.

Earlier in the day, Bindi paid tribute to her dad, the late Steve Irwin in an interview with Stellar magazine.

Congrats, Bindi and Chandler!
