Bindi’s bloke shares love on so­cial media

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

BINDI Ir­win’s new boyfriend has been con­firmed as 18- year- old US wake­boarder Chan­dler Pow­ell af­ter he gushed about her on her 17th birth­day yesterday.

Pow­ell shared an in­ti­mate pic­ture of his arm wrapped around Bindi with a touch­ing note.

He ad­mit­ted on In­sta­gram that he was “to­tally gush­ing” as he con­firmed the ru­mours af­ter Bindi ad­mit­ted she had been dat­ing some­one this week.

“Happy Birth­day to this gor­geous girl!” he wrote yesterday. “Feel very blessed to have you in my life.

“Count­ing down the days un­til I get to see you again! @ bindis­ueir­win # To­tal­lyGush­ing # ILoveCamp­ing # ILoveTheOut­doors # ISwamTheCrocPond.”

Pow­ell’s tongue- in- cheek hash­tag “I swam the croc pond” re­lates to Bindi’s story about her late dad Steve.

She has pub­licly said in the past that Steve once told her if a boy could swim through a croc pond and come out alive then she was al­lowed to date them.

Bindi was just eight years old when Steve was killed by a stingray. She has one brother Robert, aged 11.
