In her most recent interview with The Bump, Irwin revealed it was her late father who inspired her and husband Chandler Powell to nickname their upcoming arrival ‘Baby Wildlife Warrior.’
“My dad was the first person to create the term ‘Wildlife Warrior,'” she explained.
“Being a Wildlife Warrior means to stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We’ve been referring to our daughter as our Baby Wildlife Warrior. I know in my heart that she will forge her own path to make our planet a better place.”
But the little one is not the only family member with a new nickname….
Terri Irwin, Bindi’s mom and soon-to-to be grandmother of Baby Wildlife Warrior, also has a sweet name picked out for herself.
“My extraordinary mama is my best friend and I know that she is going to be such an amazing grandmother,” Bindi shared.
“We spent a long time searching for grandma names that also had an animal link. We decided that she’s going to be called ‘Bunny.'”
“It only just dawned on us that it wasn’t her name,” Bindi recalled, “but rather what everyone called her since she was a grandmother figure to the entire neighborhood.”
Bindi first announced she was pregnant in August, posting to Instagram:
“Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021. Chandler and I are proud to announce that we’re expecting! It’s an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you.”
