Bindi Irwin’s baby girl has arrived. And she and her husband, Chandler Powell, chose a special name in honor of Bindi’s late father, Steve Irwin.
Just a few months after their wedding, Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell delighted fans with a pregnancy announcement. The couple let everyone know they were expecting their first child together in a sweet photo on social media.
The Baby Irwin updates continued on social media until the big day finally came. And God certainly had a special wedding anniversary gift in mind for Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell!
On March 25, 2021, the same day as the couple’s first wedding anniversary, Bindi Irwin’s baby girl arrived. And the divine timing left the couple overjoyed.
“She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed,” Bindi wrote on social media.
Bindi Irwin’s Baby Given Special Name
Since the death of the "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin in 2006, Bindi, her brother Robert, and their mother, Terri Irwin, have worked hard to carry on Steve’s legacy.
Bindi and Chandler kept with that practice when naming their little girl Grace Warrior Irwin Powell.
The first name chosen for Bindy Irwin’s baby was Grace. It comes from Bindi’s great-grandmother, as well as some relatives in Chandler’s family. But Grace’s middle name, Warrior Irwin, is a touching tribute to Steve Irwin as his legacy as a “Wildlife Warrior.”
“Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light,” Bindi says. “There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl.”

“Love is not a big enough word,” she said. “My heart is so incredibly happy. And I know that Steve would be beyond proud. Grace is the next generation to continue his mission and message of conservation.”
