Bindi Irwin wears pregnancy well! The expecting mom has never looked happier since announcing she’s pregnant with her and husband Chandler Powell‘s first child. Whether she’s spotted on an outing or working at the Australia Zoo, photos of the mom-to-be’s growing baby bump prove she can’t wait to welcome her little one.
The beloved daughter of late TV star Steve Irwin first announced she was pregnant with their bundle of joy on August 11. Bindi revealed the exciting news alongside a super cute photo of the couple holding up a baby-sized khaki uniform.
“Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021. Chandler and I are proud to announce that we’re expecting!” the Bindi, the Jungle Girl alum gushed at the time. “It’s an honor to share this special moment in our lives with you.”
Bindi said although she’s still in the “first trimester,” the adorable lovebirds — who tied the knot in March 2020 — “couldn’t wait to share the news” with all their fans. “We really want you to be part of our journey from the beginning of this new life chapter,” she sweetly continued. “This beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives.”
Following the heartwarming announcement, a source close to the Crikey! It’s the Irwins star told Closer Weekly her famous family was “ecstatic” about baby No. 1. In fact, the Australian TV personality’s mom, Terri Irwin, “is over the moon. She’s hoping for a boy and is already planning on being a doting grandma.”
As for Bindi and Chandler, the two are extremely “excited about starting a family,” the insider added. However, the beloved conservationist’s pregnancy is “very bittersweet” because she wishes her late father, who died in 2006, could be around to watch her become a mom.
“Steve would have been the best grandpa ever,” the source shared, noting the iconic Crocodile Hunter may even be the inspiration behind their tot’s moniker. “There’s always been talk that they would name the baby Steve if it was a boy, [but] Bindi and Chandler aren’t committed to that just yet. They want to see him or her first before they choose a name.”
