Bindi Irwin Pens Emotional Letter To Her Late Dad Steve Following Engagement News

Bindi Irwin penned an emotional letter to her late dad Steve Irwin following news of her engagement to long time boyfriend Chandler Powell.

The letter confirmed that her teenage brother Robert would be walking her down the aisle saying she knows her late father Steve Irwin will be “beaming with pride” on her upcoming wedding day.

“Dad, You would be so incredibly proud of Robert,” Bindi wrote. “He has been such an amazing support during this beautiful new life chapter. I know you’d be beaming with pride when the time comes that he walks me down the aisle.”

“I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us,” Bindi continued. Robert responded with a red heart emoji.

Bindi got engaged recently on her 21st birthday to her 22-year-old wakeboarder boyfriend from Florida. The proposal was captured by 15 year old Robert which took place in the gardens of their family’s Australia Zoo.

The Crocodile Hunter’s daughter met her American fiance in 2013 when his family was given a tour of Australia Zoo. Bindi happened to be there giving tours that day and word has it he was instantly smitten. Chandler now works alongside the Irwins helping to carry on Steve’s legacy, after he was killed at age 44 by a stingray when Bindi was only eight-years-old.
