Crikey! It’s the Irwins star Bindi Irwin is getting in some bonding time with her baby girl at Australia Zoo.
The 22-year-old graced her fans and followers on social media with an adorable mother-daughter picture on Thursday evening. The famous daughter of beloved Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin was snuggling up close with her little girl. Irwin and her husband Chandler Powell welcomed Grace Warrior Irwin Powell into the world back on March 25. That also just so happens to be the date of the couple’s first wedding anniversary.
And on Thursday, Bindi Irwin and Grace Warrior were living it up at her family’s Zoo. Having lush greenery all around and a beautiful day to soak everything in, Irwin and her first child were all smiles. With more than 4.7 million followers on Instagram, there is little doubt that fans love the Irwins and their newest member.
“Our gorgeous Grace Warrior is almost two months old,” Irwin wrote alongside the adorable photo. “She loves an afternoon walk through our Australia Zoo gardens, lots of cuddles, and smiling big. She lights up the world with her beautiful heart.”
Bindi Irwin credits her husband, Chandler Powell, for capturing the heartwarming image.
Bindi Irwin Explains Meaning Behind Daughter’s Name
After welcoming her baby girl on the same day as her one-year wedding anniversary, Bindi Irwin explained the meaning behind Grace Warrior’s name. She says that it honors members of both her and Powell’s family, including her late father, Steve Irwin. Steve was killed in 2006 while part of a diving expedition off the coast of Australia. He was 44 when he died and little Bindi was just eight years old at the time.
“Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light,” Irwin shared after giving birth. “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,” she continued. “Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad.”
And just a little over a month after becoming a mom, Bindi Irwin celebrated her first Mother’s Day. As a result, she shared yet another heartwarming message to her newborn.
“Celebrating my first Mother’s Day,” Irwin posted. “This day embodies the extraordinary gift of family.”
