Bindi Irwin, 19, may be young, but she is dating a guy who may very well be the love of her life. Back in 2015, Bindi Irwin met a young American by the name of Chandler Powell.
The pair met when Chandler visited the Australia Zoo in Queensland in 2015. The zoo is also where Bindi's dad Steve Irwin, a.k.a the Crocodile Hunter, fell in love with her mom Terri.
Bindi's dad became internationally famous in the late '90s for his wildlife show, which aired on Animal Planet in the United States. Sadly, he passed away in 2006 at the age of 44 after being stung by a stingray.
The young Australian TV personality and conservationist opened up about her boyfriend during an interview with Australian Women's Weekly magazine. She explained how her father would feel about Chandler, 20:
"I'm lucky I have found the one, the person I want to spend all my time with ... We all think Dad would have loved Chandler."
Chandler was on a private tour of the Australia Zoo two years ago when he met Bindi, and the pair started writing letters to one another. Before long, they started dating. Like Bindi, he is also an animal lover. He grew up near Tampa, Fla., and spent a lot of time outdoors catching snakes and lizards.
"I believe there's always someone for everyone and when you find that one, as we have found each other, it's a real blessing and a privilege."
The pair are very much in love and are content to enjoy each other's company. Last month, Bindi shared a photo of the two of them together and captioned it with a quote from Sanober Khan:
"believe me when i say this....when you love someone....you can travel the world in their laugh."
