Nearly one month after announcing that she and her husband, Chandler Powell, are expecting their first child together, Bindi Irwin is opening up about the day they learned she was pregnant. On August 11, Irwin took to Instagram to say, “Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021.”
The news comes five months after the young couple said “I do,” in a very intimate ceremony on the ground of Australia Zoo due to COVID-19. In their announcement, Irwin wrote that while she is still in her first trimester, “Chandler and I are proud to announce that we’re expecting! It’s an honor to share this special moment in our lives with you.”
Bindi Sue Irwin Talks About the Day She Learned She and Her Husband Were Pregnant
Now, Bindi Sue is opening up about the day she and Chandler learned she was pregnant with their first child. In an Instagram caption alongside a photo of Chandler, Irwin, and their beloved dog, Piggy, Bindi wrote that she decided to share the story after “reflecting on when we found out that we are going to be parents.”
The 22-year-old said “discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still.” Bindi then went on to talk about how she reacted when she saw the positive pregnancy test in front of her.
“I took a test and ran into the kitchen where Chandler was making us tea. He didn’t hear me come in so I speechlessly watched him pouring the water into my most loved hedgehog mug. This news would change the course of our future in the best way. I started crying tears of pure joy and told my sweetheart husband that my test was positive. We were beaming while our adorable puppy Piggy sat on our feet wondering what was going on. It reminded me of just how perceptive animals are.”
From that point, she and Chandler just “sat together with tea talking about the future and how we were going to share such wonderful, life-changing news with the people that we love,” Bindi wrote. “In that short span of time the gorgeous baby I’m carrying became the most important part of our lives.”
The mom-to-be added that it is “such a blessing” knowing that the child they will soon meet had “chosen” them as parents. “Our baby Wildlife Warrior is going to be so very loved by our families and entire Australia Zoo team. I can’t wait to find out what this amazing new soul loves in life and experience the world all over again through their eyes.”
After sharing the personal story with her beloved fans, Chandler commented on the post reiterating just how much they love the little boy or girl who will enter into their world in 2021. “And we already love our little Wildlife Warrior with all of our hearts,” he shared.
One thing Bindi hasn’t shared publicly is whether or not they have found out if she and Chandler are expecting a baby girl or a baby boy. She also hasn’t shared the exact month she is due.
