Awww! ‘Dancing With the Stars’ contestant Bindi Irwin was over the moon when her hunky boyfriend, Chandler Powell, visited her between rehearsals. The wakeboarder and the adorable Aussie haven’t seen each other since she started working on the show in early Sept., so this was some much needed snuggle time.
Bindi Irwin, the 17-year-old daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, canoodled with her 18-year-old wakeboarder boyfriend Chandler Powell, on the Los Angeles DWTS set on Sept. 26. “He’s here ❤,” she gushed on Instagram. “Thank you for always making me laugh, helping me to ice my foot when it hurts, making me tea and hugging me when I’m tired. You’re amazing.”Too cute!
Bindi and her dancing partner Derek Hough revealed that DWTS does not allow visitors during rehearsals, but since E! News was invited for an interview, an exception was made. Bindi and Chandler, who have not seen each other since she made her debut on the dance floor, clearly made the most of their sweet reunion and snuck in as many kisses and cuddles as possible. Chandler has complied with DWTS no visitation policy, but definitely showed his support via social media. Each and every week he posts photos on Instagram with the phone number to vote for his lady love.
The couple first met in 2013, and in July, the conservationist revealed she is seeing “someone special.” A month later, she confirmed that they are officially dating. Chandler, who hails from Florida and flew to Los Angeles to support his gal pal, is also a global ambassador of Bindi’s Wildlife Warriors team.
So what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Bindi and Chandler are pretty hot and heavy. Are they moving too fast or totes adorbs? Sound off below!
