Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the famous late Steve Irwin, has celebrated her first birthday since she became a mother. On Saturday, Jul. 24, 2021, the new mother turned 23 years old. Bindi gave birth to her first child on Mar. 25, 2021, which she and Powell, 24, announced to the world on social media. The couple's announcement soon went viral as Irwin fans from around the world heard the news. As if the birth of the animal-loving couple's first baby wasn't special enough, Bindi and Powell revealed that Grace was also born on their first wedding anniversary.
Since that special day, both Irwin and her husband have been keeping fans up to date via social media, posting photos (and a video) with the newborn regularly. Besides Thursday's series of photos, other highlights include the first publicly released video of the child, which was taken when the baby was just three weeks old.
Bindi's romance with Powell has captivated fans of the Irwin family since July 2019, when the two announced their engagement. From what fans have heard of the couple, it often seems like Bindi and Powell are a match made in heaven. Take the couple's wedding as an example. Although the global pandemic forced Bindi and Powell to change some of their arrangements, they still managed to have what seemed like a magical wedding in the gardens of the Australia Zoo in Queensland on Mar. 25, 2020. Their ceremony even included a koala — not to mention a beautiful floral arrangement.
Now most recently, Bindi has taken to Instagram to talk about how it feels to celebrate her birthday now that she's a mom. Read on to learn more about Bindi's 23rd birthday post.
When Grace was born, Bindi broke the news a day later on Instagram. The heartfelt post included a photo of Powell and Bindi holding their newborn together, as well as a second photo of Grace's first outfit and an information card with details about the birth.
"Celebrating the two loves of my life. Happy first wedding anniversary to my sweetheart husband and day of birth to our beautiful daughter," Bindi wrote on Instagram, where the post received more than 1.4 million likes.
Bindi and Powell first announced that they were expecting a child on Aug. 11, 2020, in a surprise post to their social media accounts. At the time, Bindi said that she was still somewhere in her first trimester.
She updated fans on Instagram again on Sept. 22, 2020, writing that she and Powell were expecting a baby girl. The 22-year-old star posted the announcement alongside a photo of herself, her husband, a giant Aldabra tortoise, and a sonogram of their unborn child.
Bindi, who has become a conservationist and television star in the spirit of her late father Steve, married then-24-year-old Powell on Mar. 25, 2020, according to CNN. In keeping with the family's love for animals, Bindi and Powell held the secret wedding in the gardens of Australia Zoo in Queensland. As bizarre and unusual as that may seem, the zoo still belongs to the Irwin family — in fact, the family lives there together — as it's the same facility that Bindi's grandparents opened in the 1970s. And now, it's become the place where Bindi and Powell tied the knot.
"Chandler, When I went to write my vows I found I couldn't stop writing them," Bindi wrote in an Apr. 17, 2020, Instagram post alongside a photo from the wedding.
Days after the then-21-year-old conservationist Bindi tied the knot at the secret candlelit zoo wedding in Queensland, Australia, Bindi's mother reflected on the fact that her husband didn't get the chance to see their daughter married.
In the Mar. 28, 2020, post to Terri's Twitter account, the then-56-year-old widow wrote an emotional tribute along with a photo of the late Steve holding his baby son, Robert, at a wedding. Both Robert and Steve were wearing khaki, Steve's perennial color of choice.
"Remembering @RobertIrwin's first wedding. I love that Steve and Robert both wore khaki. I know Steve would have worn khaki to Bindi & Chandler's wedding, too," Terri wrote on Twitter.
Now, Bindi has celebrated her first birthday as a mom. On Saturday, Bindi turned 23 years old. She took to her Instagram to post about the milestone. The caption read:
"My first birthday as a mama has been the most beautiful gift. Our sweet Grace Warrior's face says it all. Today I celebrated by feeding Monty the crocodile and hugging my gorgeous girl (not at the same time!). 💛 Thank you for the lovely birthday messages and kind support, it means the world to me."
The post featured two photos. One photo featured Bindi with baby Grace in a floral outfit with a big bow headband. The next photo featured Bindi with her mom, brother, husband, and daughter Grace all smiling at the baby, who was sitting on the table next to a tiered birthday cake. We're sure that Bindi had a wonderful birthday surrounded by family, and it must have been so special to celebrate for the first time as a mom!
