Bindi Irwin announced in August that she and her husband Chandler Powell were expecting a child, due to be born in March! Since then, the daughter of the Australian documentary filmmaker Steve Irwin has been giving regular updates on her pregnancy. Now, she has posted a family photo that shows off her growing baby bump!
Bindi and her baby bump take centre stage in pic
Bindi posted a brand-new family photo on Instagram on Monday. The mother-to-be can be seen standing in a nature park surrounded by her loved ones— husband Chandler, younger brother Robert Irwin, and mom Terri Irwin.
The family looks overjoyed in the picture, with everyone focusing on Bindi's huge baby bump! Everyone has their eyes on Bindi's stomach, and her mom is seen placing a hand on it protectively. "We are waiting for the arrival of Baby Wildlife Warrior," Bindi captioned the photo.
Bindi's family photo pays homage to Steve Irwin
Bindi's post sees the family wearing uniforms from the Wildlife Warriors organization, which was founded by Steve Irwin. The caption she chose for the photo with is a fitting way to commemorate him, since her father coined the term "Wildlife Warrior!
In an interview with The Bump, Bindi explained the term in more detail. "Being a Wildlife Warrior means to stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves," she said. Her daughter will also work for the protection of animals in the future— she is sure of that!
Chandler is clearly proud of his wife Bindi, who he married last year at the Australia Zoo. "Bindi, you will be the best mom for our Baby Wildlife Warrior, I love you," Chandler said in one of his Instagram posts. With not long to go until her due date now, the world can't wait to meet Bindi's "Baby Wildlife Warrior"!
