Bindi Irwin shows off growing baby bump

Bindi Irwin has shared a photo of her growing bump, revealing the baby is now “the same size as a mountain pygmy-possum”.

The 22-year-old announced that she was expecting with husband Chandler Powell in August, sharing a photo of the pair holding up a tiny Australia Zoo uniform.

“My beautiful mum took this photo yesterday,” she wrote to her 4 million Instagram followers on Sunday.

“Baby girl is doing great.

“Every time we get an ultrasound she’s incredibly energetic and always moving around.

“She’s now about the same size as a mountain pygmy-possum. Too cute!”

Earlier this month, Bindi revealed how she broke the news of her positive pregnancy test to Chandler, saying it was a “moment where time stood still”.

“I took a test and ran into the kitchen where Chandler was making us tea,” she said.

“He didn’t hear me come in so I speechlessly watched him pouring the water into my most loved hedgehog mug.

“I started crying tears of pure joy and told my sweetheart husband that my test was positive.

“In that short span of time the gorgeous baby I’m carrying became the most important part of our lives.”

The couple wed in an intimate ceremony on March 25 this year, just before the country enforced restrictions on weddings due to the pandemic.
