We previously reported that Bindi Irwin and her husband Chandler Powell are pregnant with their first child! The couple tied the knot in March. They got married at the Australia Zoo, where they both work, but their wedding was very different. Unfortunately, they had to cut down the guest list and make changes due to the pandemic.
The couple recently shared the news on Instagram. Now, Bindi is sharing a look inside their lives and the moment she saw that positive pregnancy test. She shared a photo of herself and Chandler holding their dog.
Bindi tells fans what happened after she found out she was pregnant
She wrote, “Reflecting on when we found out that we are going to be parents. ❤️ Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still. 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.
She added, “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.”
Lastly, she said, “We 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. In that short span of time the gorgeous baby I’m carrying became the most important part of our lives. It is such a blessing knowing that this tiny person has chosen us 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.”
Her mother, Terri, and brother Robert both previously shared their excitement. This is the first grandchild for Terri. We know that Bindi’s late father Steve Irwin would be so excited and proud. We can’t wait to learn more details including if the baby is a boy or a girl!
