Bindi Irwin shares moving update after pregnancy announcement

Bindi Irwin shares moving update after pregnancy announcement

Bindi Irwin and her husband Chandler Powell announced earlier in August that they were expecting their first child.

And just this past Sunday evening, the 22-year-old wildlife warrior shared a wonderful Instagram post about a “beautiful star shining in the night sky”.

The quote, penned by Walk the Earth Writer Nikki Banas, read: “Like a beautiful star shining in the night sky, your purpose is not to compare your light or brightness to any other star.

“Your purpose is not to wish you were a moon or a planet, or to wish you were somewhere else.

“Your purpose is not to change who you are or what you are made of. Your purpose is to shine your light as bright and as beautiful as only you can.”

At the beginning of August, Bindi confirmed the imminent arrival of her first child with Chandler in a charming Instagram post that read: “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. Though I'm still in my first trimester, we really want you to be part of our journey from the beginning of this new life chapter.

“We couldn't wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives. Your support means the world to us.”

Bindi went on to write, “Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes and prayers to our little sweetheart. Love and light.”

In the accompanying photo, pictured above, Bindi and Chandler posed side-by-side in their Australia Zoo uniforms, while holding up a tiny version of the outfit for their little one.

The couple were married on March 25, in a makeshift ceremony at Australia Zoo.

They met almost seven years earlier in November 2013 when Chandler, who hails from Florida, was touring Australia for a wakeboarding competition.
