Why Did Bindi Irwin Name Her Daughter Grace Warrior?
“Grace Warrior” is certainly not the most common name for newborn girls. But for Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell, it’s a name that not only makes perfect sense but also honors both of their families. For Bindi, the name “Grace” is a tribute to her great-grandmother. Similarly, the name “Grace” has been a part of Powell’s family for centuries.
“Grace Warrior Irwin Powell,” Irwin announced after she gave birth. “Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s.”
As for baby Grace’s middle names, “Warrior Irwin,” those are a tribute to the one and only Steve Irwin. Steve was tragically killed by a stingray barb back on September 4, 2006, he was filming the documentary Ocean’s Deadliest. Bindi was just eight years old when that happened.
“Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior,” she said. “Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad. There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl. She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed.”
There’s no doubt about that. Bindi Irwin’s the perfect mom for little Grace. She will no doubt raise her daughter to care for Mother Earth and all of her animals just like her late dad did.
