Bindi Irwin and husband Chandler Powell welcome baby girl

Bindi Irwin has given birth to a baby girl, and revealed the special meaning behind her daughter’s name.

The 22-year-old and her husband Chandler Powell took to social media on Friday night to share the special news, revealing they had welcomed their new bundle of joy on March 25 – the same day as their first wedding anniversary.

“Celebrating the two loves of my life. Happy first wedding anniversary to my sweetheart husband and day of birth to our beautiful daughter,” Bindi wrote.


“Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light.”

Bindi revealed Grace is named after her great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s.

“Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior,” she said, paying tribute to her father Steve Irwin.

“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.”
