Bindi Irwin has a "baby Wildlife Warrior" on the way!
The 22-year-old daughter of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin announced on Instagram Tuesday that she is pregnant with her first child. She and her husband, Chandler Powell, 23, each posted a photo of them beaming while holding a tiny uniform for the Australia Zoo in Queensland, where they live and work.
"Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021," Irwin wrote. "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. Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes & prayers to our little sweetheart. Love & light."
"We’re going to be parents!!" Powell wrote. "We have a baby Wildlife Warrior on the way coming in 2021. Becoming a dad is the highlight of my life. I cannot wait to embark on this new adventure and life chapter with my gorgeous wife, @bindisueirwin. Bee, you’re going to be the most amazing mother."
It's the latest chapter in a busy year for the young couple, who decided to go ahead with their wedding on March 25 in a small ceremony at the zoo without guests due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Irwin's mom, Terri, and brother, Robert, also chimed in on social media to wish the couple well.
"Words cannot express the love that is filling my heart," Terri Irwin wrote.
Robert added, "I can’t believe I’m going to be an uncle!"
Irwin's brother, Robert, 16, walked his sister down the aisle in place of their late father.
