It’s a beautiful baby bundle for Bindi Irwin.
The 22-year-old conservationist and daughter of the late Steve “Crocodile Hunter” Irwin announced on her Instagram account on Friday that she had given birth to her first child with husband Chandler Powell.
The couple, who previously announced they would have a daughter, named the child Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. She happened to be born on the same day Irwin and Powell celebrated their first birthday as a married couple.
“We’re celebrating the two loves of my life,” Irwin wrote in the caption. “Happy first wedding anniversary to my beloved husband and the birthday of our beautiful daughter. Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. “
“Grace is named for my great-grandmother and relatives in Chandler’s 18th century family,” she continued. “Her middle name, Warrior Irwin, pays homage to my father and his legacy as the most incredible wildlife warrior. Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul as her father. There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby. She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel extraordinarily blessed. “
Powell, 24, posted the same photo on his own account, writing: “Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. After waiting for you to arrive for the past 9 months, finally meeting you has been the best moment of my life. You have a great life ahead of you and no matter what, you will be surrounded by a whole lot of love. Thank you so much for giving presents to your beautiful mother and me on our wedding day. We are very happy to have you at home. “
Irwin and Powell met in November 2013 when he was in Australia for a professional wakeboarding competition and decided to stop by the Australia Zoo.
Irwin said in 2019 that she couldn’t be happier to have found a partner who shares so many traits in her father.
“He loves wildlife and conservation and he has that strength. What to do when jumping on crocodiles. “
Irwin’s late father, Steve, was a natural nut and an internationally known figure. He was killed in the chest by a stingray in 2006 while making an underwater documentary in Australia.
