Baby Irwin Is on the Way, and They Already Have a Tiny Khaki Zoo Shirt Ready to Go

Bindi Irwin, daughter of the legend himself, announced that the Irwin family is going to get bigger as she and her husband Chandler Powell are expecting a “Baby Wildlife Warrior.” You’ll be happy to know that there’s already a tiny shirt ready and waiting for the baby to arrive, and so are we, for that matter!

Bright Side, as well as millions of other people, absolutely adores the Irwin family and that’s why we thought we should share this with you, since we all need the good news!

The Irwin family is about to get bigger.

On Tuesday, Bindi Irwin and her husband Chandler Powell announced that they will be having their first child together, due in 2021. The wildlife conservationist followed in her late father Steve Irwin’s footsteps and we can soon expect another member to join her family’s efforts to preserve wildlife.

She wrote in her Instagram post: “We couldn’t wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives. Your support means the world to us. Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes to our little sweetheart. Love & light.” And we have no doubt that someone as caring as she and her husband Chandler will become great parents, who will teach their child to love nature and everything that is a part of it!

A match made in heaven

Bindi and Chandler met when he was visiting Australia for a wakeboarding competition. He visited the Australia Zoo, which is a wildlife sanctuary owned by the Irwin family, and that’s where he met the zesty zoo operator. He told People: “It just so happened that Bindi was giving tours that day, I’m like, ’Wow, she is amazing.’” That was just a beginning of the incredible love story that a lot of people dream of!

Even their marriage was at the zoo.

They got married around 5 months ago at the Australian Zoo, and their marriage aired on TV so thousands of people could share in the Irwin family’s joy and happiness.

“Every day I’m so happy to be married to you and spend our time together doing what we love most,” Chandler says. It’s obvious that this couple shares an incredible love for each other, as well as for wildlife, and we couldn’t be happier that they are bringing a child into the world.

People loved hearing this news.

Of course, Robert Irwin was one of the first to express his happiness for his big sister: “I am so happy for Bindi and Chandler to be welcoming a new member of the family. I can’t believe I’m going to be an uncle!!! It’s such a happy time for our family — I look forward to this brilliant new chapter and all the fun adventures ahead with a new little Wildlife Warrior!” he said, clearly excited to explore with his future nephew!

The comments on her Instagram post got an outpouring love and support from many, many celebrities. The whole world is happy for Bindi and Chandler and we all are looking forward to seeing whether their child will follow in the Irwin family’s footsteps.

Her father would’ve been the proudest and the happiest!

Grab your tissue box because just a few days ago, Bindi shared a beautiful painting done by a talented woman on Instagram, in which you can see Steve Irwin painted into the portrait at his daughter’s wedding. It really touched us and we know that Steve will always be with her and his family, sharing their happiness with them!

Do you think the baby will be a boy or a girl, and will they follow in Steve Irwin’s footsteps? Please let us know what you think.
