Many of us remember watching The Crocodile Hunter and seeing Steve and Terri Irwin teaching their young children, Bindi and Robert, about the animals they interacted with.
Now, both of the Irwin “kids” are much older, and Bindi just married her partner, Chandler in a small ceremony. In a social media post, Bindi explained that they’d had to drastically modify their wedding, including by having no guests aside from a small number of family members, in order to protect themselves and others from COVID-19.
“March 25th 2020 ❤️ We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now. We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe. We wish all of our friends and family could have been there with us, however it’s lovely that we will be able to share photos and videos. Right now we’re encouraging the world to hold onto hope and love, which will carry us forward during this profound time in history. Today we celebrated life and revelled in every beautiful moment we shared together in our Australia Zoo gardens. Mum helped me get ready, Robert walked me down the aisle, Chandler became my husband and together we lit a candle in Dad’s memory. We shared tears and smiles and love. Thankfully, since we all live at Australia Zoo as a family, we could be there for each other. To everyone reading this – stay safe, social distance and remember LOVE WINS!”
The news brought a smile to many people’s faces as they celebrated good news in the middle of a pandemic. Both Bindi and Robert have continued their father’s legacy at the Australia Zoo, and the world has watched them grow up over the years. Having seen the love that Bindi and Chandler have shown each other over the years, it’s no wonder that so many people were so happy to see them finally married.
