They may have a few months to wait yet before they get to meet their first child, but Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell are keeping their fans up to date with their pregnancy every step of the way. And on Sunday the couple publicly shared their baby scans with the world.
Taking to Instagram this morning, Bindi posted a sweet photograph of herself and Chandler cuddling up to a koala joey and a young kangaroo, as Bindi held up a large ultrasound scan photo to the camera.
“The animal joeys we care for are excited to meet our human joey,” Bindi wrote. “Baby Wildlife Warrior is about about the size of a hummingbird now!
“We can’t wait to teach our little one about the importance of protecting our planet and the beauty of the wildlife and wild places we love so much. Thank you for your kindness and support on this magical journey.”
Fans of the couple shared their excitement over the news, with one commenting: “I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited/emotional for a pregnancy announcement. I’m so excited for you guys.”
“The best thing that happened in 2020,” another said. While another wrote: “So amazing, I’m sure your father is picking out the perfect bundle of joy for you both.”
Many fans also shared their hope that Bindi would name her first child after her late father Steve, with one suggesting: “100% name that kid Steve.” Another commented: “THIS BABY BETTER BE NAMED STEVE.”
While others even attempted to guess the baby’s gender from the scan photos, with many believing Bindi is pregnant with a girl, however the couple have not confirmed whether they’re expecting a boy or a girl.
Earlier this month, the 22-year-old mum-to-be opened up about the emotional moment she discovered she was going to be a mother, and revealed how she broke the news to her American husband of six months.
“Reflecting on when we found out that we are going to be parents,” Bindi wrote on Instagram on Wednesday. “Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still. 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. 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.”
