The 22-year-old daughter of the late Steve Irwin included a photo of the happy couple cradling their newborn, named Grace Warrior Irwin Powell.

"Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light," she wrote. "Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s. Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior. Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad."

This is the first child for Irwin and Powell, who got married at the Australia Zoo in March. The couple tied the knot in a small ceremony due to restrictions in place during the coronavirus pandemic.

Irwin revealed in August that the couple were expecting a baby. Irwin and Powell broke the happy news in an Instagram post, featuring a photo of the two of them, dressed in their khaki Australia Zoo uniforms, and holding a tiny matching shirt for their newborn.

She updated fans every step of the way throughout her pregnancy and shared her excitement about meeting the Australia Zoo's newest little "Wildlife Warrior."

In September, the mom-to-be happily shared that she was expecting a baby girl. She also held up her sonogram photo as she and Powell cuddled baby joeys and shared her progress.

"The animal joeys we care for are excited to meet our human joey," she wrote. "Baby Wildlife Warrior is about the size of a hummingbird now! We can’t wait to teach our little one about the importance of protecting our planet and the beauty of the wildlife and wild places we love so much. Thank you for your kindness and support on this magical journey."

Irwin shared another photo in October that showed off her growing baby bump while she was surrounded by giraffes at the Australia Zoo.

"Baby bump is getting bigger!" Irwin wrote. She posed with her hand on her stomach to show the progress of her pregnancy.

"We’re getting close to the halfway point and I think our Australia Zoo animal family is excited to meet our daughter next year," she added. "Even Forest the giraffe is wondering what’s happening!"

There's also someone else who has eagerly been awaiting the arrival of the baby girl — Irwin's 17-year-old brother, Robert. She penned a sweet note that same month about what an awesome uncle he'll be.

"Shoutout to my little brother (who definitely isn’t ‘little’ anymore) for being such an incredible friend," she wrote. "You’re always there for me and I know you will be the best uncle when our baby girl is born. Love you."

Irwin has also opened up about the rush she felt after she learned she was going to be a mom.

"Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still," she wrote on Instagram during her pregnancy. "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."
