Steve Irwin’s daughter, Bindi, and her husband recently celebrated their daughter’s one-week birthday. As a way to commemorate the moment, the couple shared adorable pictures of the newborn.
Irwin, now 22-years-old, posted a series of Instagram snaps on Thursday showing their daughter swaddled and sleeping. “Our perfect Grace Warrior is one week old. This week has been filled with sweet snuggles and infinite love,” Irwin captioned.
Her husband, Chandler Powell, a 24-year-old professional wakeboarder, also shared photos on his page and wrote, “One week as a family of 3 My two beautiful girls make every day perfect.”
Last week, the couple announced the birth, revealing that they named their daughter after Irwin’s late father, who passed away after an incident with stingrays in 2006.
“Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light,” Irwin shared on social media. “Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior.”

In addition, the couple’s decision to name her Grace was also intentional. The name honors Irwin’s great-grandmother, as well as relatives on Powell’s side of the family “dating back to the 1700s,” according to Irwin.
Moreso, Grace’s birthdate of March 25, 2021, was also her parents’ first wedding anniversary. Cue the tears. The young couple got married a year ago in an intimate ceremony with their immediate family.
“She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed,” Irwin wrote when she announced her daughter’s birth. On Instagram, her husband posted the same photos, writing a sweet caption to celebrate the new bundle of joy.
“Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. After waiting for you to arrive for the last 9 months, finally meeting you has been the best moment of my life,” he wrote. “You have a big life ahead of you and no matter what, you will be surrounded by a whole lot of love. Thank you for gracing your beautiful mother and me on our wedding anniversary, so excited to have you home.’
According to the couple, baby Grace was born at 5:52 p.m. and weighed 7 lbs. and 7 oz. She also measured 20 inches long.
