Bindi Irwin's Sweetest Photos From Her Pregnancy
Irwin and husband Chandler Powell welcomed daughter Grace on March 25, 2021
Love Is in the Air
"My Valentine every year," Chandler wrote of his wife on Valentine's Day 2021. He added, "How you've handled this past year is incredible. Each day I am amazed by you and feel like the luckiest man alive to be your husband. You and our daughter are everything to me."
Bindi wrote of Chandler in her adorable Valentine's Day tribute, "Over 7 years of loving this handsome guy. My forever Valentine and incredible husband."
Just over one month later, the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Grace Warrior Irwin Powell.
"Not long now until there's 3 of us going on adventures💚," Chandler wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of one of the couple's aforementioned adventures.
Rain or Shine
"Rain or shine, forever loving you," Bindi captioned a sweet photo with Chandler in February 2021.
The pair had a laugh while filming for Crikey It's The Irwins, with Chandler sharing an adorable blooper of Bindi.
"I thought I was big then, but look at me..." Bindi starts before the wind blows her hand in her face, "with this hair in my face."
"Nothing stops a Wildlife Warrior," Chandler jokes.
The mom-to-be gave a look at her daughter's nursery, which, fittingly for the animal enthusiast, had a cuddly bunny motif. "Baby girl we can't wait for you to be here," she wrote.
Bindi and her husband Chandler Powell recreated "a very special moment" from an old photograph depicting Bindi with her parents Terri (then expecting son Robert) and her late father Steve Irwin.
Lots of Love
"All the love in the world," Bindi captioned a photo snuggled up to Chandler in January 2021, their hands cradling her growing baby bump.
The pair celebrated Christmas 2020 as a soon-to-be family of three! "Merry Christmas from our little family," Chandler wrote on Instagram.
Bindi shared a sweet photo cradling her belly on her Instagram Story. "26 weeks tomorrow," she updated her fans.
She also added a message to her baby girl: "Oh how I love you."
"Love these guys," Bindi wrote alongside a photo of her with brother Robert and husband Chandler. She added, "*Not pictured is baby girl karate chipping, wanting me to hurry up and eat the pumpkin gnocchi!"
Ray of Light
"You are my sunshine," the mom-to-be captioned the sunset photo of the couple sharing a hug.
"I love you and our group hugs with baby girl," Powell commented.
Seeing Their Baby Girl
The mom-to-be shared a sweet video from her ultrasound appointment on Instagram. In the video, Bindi gushes, "This is so exciting! Look at our daughter, she's so beautiful," before her husband pans the camera to the ultrasound screen.
Chandler can be heard behind the camera saying, "Wow, you can see her heartbeat there. Oh my goodness, she is beautiful."
Bindi captioned the video of the sweet moment, which was shared on Thanksgiving, "Our beautiful daughter is the light of our lives. 💛 Beyond thankful that she chose us to be her parents. I can't wait for her to be here next year."
The mom-to-be gave fans a "bumpdate" on her Instagram, sharing a sweet photo with her husband Chandler while holding up a sign reading "20 weeks."
In the heartwarming picture, Irwin is wearing a pair of overalls over a white t-shirt while snuggled up to Powell, who is dressed in a crocodile-print top.
"Halfway there," Bindi shared. "20 weeks pregnant and our baby girl is about the same size as a recently hatched emu chick. 💗 The love I have for my sweetheart husband and our beautiful daughter is boundless."
Blue Jean Baby
The first-time mom-to-be loves her maternity clothes! Bindi posed with a big smile in a khaki-colored long-sleeved button-down shirt and a pair of maternity jeans.
"Now that I know the comforts of maternity jeans, I don't think I'll ever be able [to] go back," wrote Bindi. "Any other mamas out there that can relate? 💙"
Bindi shared on Instagram (with the help of Forest the giraffe), "Baby bump is getting bigger! We're getting close to the halfway point and I think our Australia Zoo animal family is excited to meet our daughter next year. Even Forest the giraffe is wondering what's happening! 🧡 🦒"
A Mother's Love
"Dinner with the fam and baby bump," Bindi wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her cradling her bump. "There are no words to describe how much I love our baby girl."
Bindi shared a photo of her growing bump, taken by her mom, Terri Irwin. She captioned the snap, "My beautiful mum took this photo yesterday. Baby girl is doing great."
She added, "Every time we get an ultrasound she's incredibly energetic and always moving around. She's now about the same size as a mountain pygmy-possum. Too cute! 💛"
Bindi is going to be the best cuddler when baby girl arrives! She showed off her koala-fications in an Instagram post, writing, "Can't wait for our sweet baby girl to meet our animal family. I think she'll love how fluffy our koalas are. 💗🐨 "
She updated fans, "We've entered the second trimester and now baby Wildlife Warrior is about the size of a hamster!"
Slow and Steady
Posing with an Aldabra tortoise, the pair showed off another ultrasound and their big smiles, sharing, "Baby girl, you are our world. ❤️"
Bindi added, "Our beautiful daughter is now about the same size as a hatchling Aldabra tortoise and is as healthy as can be. We can't wait for her arrival next year."
Jumping for Joy
The happy couple posed with a koala and kangaroo to show off their first ultrasound.
"The animal joeys we care for are excited to meet our human joey. ❤️," Bindi wrote. "Baby Wildlife Warrior is about the size of a hummingbird now! We can't wait to teach our little one about the importance of protecting our planet and the beauty of the wildlife and wild places we love so much. Thank you for your kindness and support on this magical journey."
After announcing their happy news, Bindi reflected on the moment that the pair (and their puppy, Piggy) found out that they were going to be parents.
She wrote on Instagram, "Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still. I took a test and ran into the kitchen where Chandler was making us tea. ... I started crying tears of pure joy and told my sweetheart husband that my test was positive. ... We sat together with tea talking about the future and how we were going to share such wonderful, life changing news with the people that we love. In that short span of time the gorgeous baby I'm carrying became the most important part of our lives."
She added, "I can't wait to find out what this amazing new soul loves in life, and experience the world all over again through their eyes."

"Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021," the mom-to-be wrote. "Chandler and I are proud to announce that we're expecting! It's an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you."
"Though I'm still in my first trimester, we really want you to be part of our journey from the beginning of this new life chapter," she continued. "We couldn't wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives. Your support means the world to us."
