Chandler Powell Says ‘Best Part’ of Life Is Making Daughter Grace and Wife Bindi Sue Irwin Smile

by Madison Miller

For Chandler Powell, it seems like becoming a father was one of the best moments of his life.

He recently posted an adorable photo while smiling brightly at the camera alongside his daughter, Grace Warrior. He captioned the photo, “Best part of my life is making Grace and @bindisueirwin smile.”

He is certainly succeeding with that in the photo. Grace is smiling and lifting her arms and has on a very fitting bib that reads, “Dada makes me smile.”

As always, fans adored the photo. One person wrote, “Your love for each other is what fairytales are made of! #sweetestfamily,” Meanwhile someone else noted that, “Looks like Grace has her daddy’s eyes. So sweet.”

Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell got married on March 25, 2020, in a very intimate ceremony at the one place they both will always call home — the Australian Zoo. They tied the knot after being together for almost seven years of dating.

They welcomed their first daughter into the world on March 25, 2021, exactly one year after their wedding ceremony.

Since then, they have shared cute tidbits of their life together on social media. A lot of which has to do with introducing Grace to the wildlife the whole family adores (Steve Irwin would be proud). A week ago, Chandler posted a photo where he is covered by red-and-blue birds as he is crouched in front of Grace’s stroller.

Grace really is learning young just how much wildlife and conservation means to the Irwin family.

More About Chandler Powell

We know a lot about Bindi Irwin and the rest of the family due to their father Steve’s prominence before passing away. They also have their own show, “Crikey! It’s the Irwins” where they share that life with viewers at home.

Chandler and Grace are two new stars of the show now as the new season airs. It begs an important question — who exactly is Chandler Powell?

Chandler Powell is American and he’s from Seffner, Florida. Although the Irwins are essentially the royal family of Australia, Bindi did not fall in love with someone from Australia. He relocated to Australia as of 2018.

Powell is also a former professional wakeboarder. He started to compete professionally at 15 and earned sponsorships that allowed him to compete all around the world. He gave that up in 2016 and now works at the Australia Zoo and is active with the Wildlife Warriors. Although he no longer is a professional wakeboarder, it’s actually what brought him to Bindi. He was in Australia for an event and he popped into the zoo.

“It just so happened that Bindi was giving tours that day. I’m like, ‘Wow, she is amazing,'” he said to People in 2018.

They stayed in touch from that point out and the rest is history.
