Bindi’s bloke shares love on social media
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.
