Bindi, who is in her third trimester, gave her Instagram followers a look into her daughter’s nursery, revealing pale colours, soft pastel florals and cute bunny decals on the wall.
“Sharing our deepest gratitude to YOU reading this message as we get ready for our daughter to arrive,” the 22-year-old wrote. “The support we have received from your kind comments, Chandler’s family in Florida, mine in Oregon, friends across the globe, our amazing Australia Zoo family – it means the world to us. Baby Wildlife Warrior is already so loved and we are eternally grateful. With all my heart, thank you.”
Bindi has kept her followers up to date on her first pregnancy, with regular baby bump updates in true Irwin style by comparing her little girl’s size to some of Australia Zoo’s cute and cuddly creatures. Announcing in September 2020, that her baby was ‘about the size of a hummingbird’, later that month, Bindi said she’d grown to the size of a hatchling Aldabra tortoise.
By the halfway point of Bindi’s pregnancy with husband Chandler Powell, their bub was the same size as a hatched emu chick and at 26 weeks, baby Wildlife Warrior reached the size of a shingleback lizard.
Bindi and Chandler also recently recreated a special pregnancy photo that Bindi’s mum Terri and dad Steve took when they were pregnant with Robert.”Recreating a very special moment. Third trimester love,” Bindi captioned the image, which quickly prompted an emotional response from fans on social media. With some saying “I can’t stop crying!!! Steve would be so thrilled,” one Twitter user wrote.”Well I was already on the edge but now I’m absolutely sobbing,” said another.
“This made my eyes well up. Your parents made two beautiful human beings and to see [Steve’s] legacies still being carried out is amazing. Keep spreading love and understanding for all creatures. Your family is a treasure,” a third commented.
Bindi and Chandler announced they were expecting their ‘Baby Wildlife Warrior’ in August last year, telling fans: “It’s an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you”.
With the countdown on we are all looking forward to meeting this little Grand-Baby Wildlife Warrior.
