Bindi Irwin Reveals How She Told Chandler Powell She Was Pregnant

Everyone's favorite animal conservation family from Down Under is getting bigger. In case you didn't know, Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell are expecting their first baby. Crikey, that's wonderful news! The happy couple tied the knot back in March at their home away from home, the Queensland Australia Zoo, and just five months later made the announcement about their "Baby Wildlife Warrior" on social media on August 11th (via People). Mom-to-be Irwin captioned her joyous Instagram post which featured a tiny Australia Zoo uniform, stating "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."

In the honest and unassuming way that only the Irwins can, Bindi took to Instagram earlier this week to give fans a glimpse into the heartwarming moment she not only found out she was expecting, but told her husband about their bundle of joy (via Us Weekly).

"Time stood still" when Bindi Irwin found out she was pregnant

With an intimate look into their lives that only endears her to her fans even more, Irwin shared with her followers that "Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still" (via Instagram). She details the moment affectionately recalling, "I took a test and ran into the kitchen where Chandler was making us tea. He didn't hear me come in so I speechlessly watched him pouring the water into my most loved hedgehog mug. This news would change the course of our future in the best way. I started crying tears of pure joy and told my sweetheart husband that my test was positive. We were beaming while our adorable puppy Piggy sat on our feet wondering what was going on. It reminded me of just how perceptive animals are." 

Is someone chopping onions in here?! This couple couldn't get more adorable if they tried.

Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell's happiness is overflowing

Irwin, 22, went on to describe how she and Powell, 23, basked in the moment together (via People). She wrote, "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. It is such a blessing knowing that this tiny person has chosen us as parents. Our baby Wildlife Warrior is going to be so very loved by our families and entire Australia Zoo team. 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." 

Don't worry, dad-to-be Powell piped in as well stating in the post's comments, "And we already love our little Wildlife Warrior with all of our hearts."
