“July 24th 2019 ❤️ On my birthday I said ‘yes’ and ‘forever’ to the love of my life,” Bindi explains in an Instagram post.
“Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness. I’m so looking forwarding to spending our forever together as your wife. Here’s to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love. — Now let’s get married already!”
Chandler works alongside Bindi’s family at the Australia Zoo, founded by her late father, the incredible Steve Irwin. He was quick to share his exciting news with social media as well and his stunning photos with his soon-to-be bride.
Fun fact, he actually proposed to Bindi at the same place they originally met; the Australia Zoo!
“She said YES! ❤️💍 Almost 6 years ago we met at Australia Zoo. I immediately fell head over heels for her kind and thoughtful heart that radiates so much light,” Chandler writes on Instagram.
“Proposing in her very favorite place in the zoo, surrounded by animals, seemed like the perfect way to embark on this incredible new chapter in our lives. Bee, I love you more than anything in this world and I always will. Happy Birthday.”
Steve Irwin’s daughter speaks to Australian Women’s Weekly back in 2017 about her late father and what he would’ve thought about Chandler. It definitely seems as though Australia Zoo was a very fitting place to celebrate their love, considering Steve would have loved Chandler, according to Bindi.
“I believe there’s always someone for everyone and when you find that one, as we have found each other, it’s a real blessing and a privilege,” she says. “We all think Dad would have loved Chandler.”
We hope these two live happily ever after! What a beautiful couple, congrats to them!
