Bindi and Chandler met when the American wakeboarder visited Australia Zoo on a tour with his family back in 2013.
They instantly hit it off and their friendship continued to grow until they publicly announced their relationship two years later.
The couple remained strong in a long distance relationship often sharing photos of each other on their social media pages. In 2018, Chandler finally moved to Queensland and began working at the zoo with the Irwin family.
Chandler proposed to Bindi on her 21st birthday the year after and the rest is history.
We are so excited for the two of them and cannot wait to see this baby grow up to be part of the legacy her amazing father left behind.
The whole of Australia is behind you both!
