"I'm lucky I have found the one, the person I want to spend all my time with. Mum and Robert and I have talked about that a lot. We all think dad would have loved Chandler," Irwin told Australian Women's Weekly in October 2017. That same week, Powell gushed about his girlfriend on Instagram, writing: "These are the moments you wish that you could just press 'pause' and hold onto forever. These hugs mean everything to me."

TO ADORE & ASPIRE
Powell celebrated his love's 19th birthday with sweet messages on Instagram. "Happy Birthday for tomorrow to the kindest, strongest, most beautiful soul I have ever met. We have been together for years now and loving you will always be the greatest blessing," he wrote in one post. "You see her dancing on the TV, hand feeding crocodiles, running a zoo, and fighting for conservation all while spreading more love, light and happiness than anyone else. After all she works tirelessly for and dedicates herself to, all she asks for in return is a good book, a warm cup of tea and lots of hugs. If that isn't perfection I don't know what is," he gushed in another.

Powell responded to Irwin's message with some sweet words of his own: "20 years old will definitely be the most difficult age for me to get used to thus far... I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend it than living in the middle of nowhere for a few days with my girl @bindisueirwin, she sure knows how to give me an amazing birthday."
