Congrats to Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell! The couple, who have been dating since 2013, got engaged on July 24th while celebrating her 21st birthday. The pics of their engagement are adorable.
Bindi Irwin is all grown up and getting married. The 21-year-old daughter of the late The Crocodile Hunter star, Steve Irwin, announced on Instagram that her boyfriend, 22-year-old Chandler Powell, popped the question during a trip to the Australia Zoo. Bindi thought they were going to one of her favorite places to ring in her big 21st birthday, but her now-fiancé had bigger plans in mind. She wrote an adorable post dedicated to her 22-year-old love on Instagram later that day, writing, “July 24th 2019 ❤️ On my birthday I said ‘yes’ and ‘forever’ to the love of my life. Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness.
“I’m so looking forwarding to spending our forever together as your wife,” she continued. “Here’s to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love. — Now let’s get married already!” She included sweet photos of herself and Chandler taken right after the engagement, which shows a closeup shot of her gorgeous engagement ring — a huge, oval cut diamond with smaller diamonds around the band. The other cute pic shows Chandler beaming after Bindi says “yes.” Bindi, going barefoot and wearing a cute, floral minidress, pops her leg and smiles at the camera.

“She said YES! ❤️💍 Almost 6 years ago we met at Australia Zoo,” Chandler wrote, including another beautiful pic of himself and Bindi with the post. “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. Bee, I love you more than anything in this world and I always will. Happy Birthday.”
