Terri Irwin says her late husband Steve Irwin would be “beyond proud” of their daughter Bindi, who recently gave birth to their first child.
The conservationist, 56, shared a touching post on Twitter after 22-year-old Bindi welcomed her first child with her husband Chandler Powell.
“Love is not a big enough word. My heart is incredibly happy. And I know Steve would be beyond proud,” Terri tweeted. “Grace is the next generation that will continue her mission and message of conservation. She chose her parents wisely. Bindi and Chandler are already the best parents of all time!”
Bindi answered, saying, “We love you beyond words.”
BINDI IRWIN AND HUSBAND CHANDLER POWELL WELCOME GIRL
The daughter of the late Steve Irwin announced her little girl’s arrival on social media on Friday.
“March 25, 2021. Celebrating the two loves of my life. Happy first wedding anniversary to my beloved husband and the day of the birth of our beautiful daughter”, Bindi wrote.
She revealed her daughter’s name as Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. The newborn’s middle name is a nod to Bindi’s late father.
“Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother and relatives of the Chandler family dating back to the 1700s. Her middle name, Warrior Irwin, is a tribute to my father and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior, “continues Bindi’s post.
