Bindi Irwin & her Husband Celebrates 1st Birthday of their Daughter
Grace, Bindi Irwin‘s daughter and one of Australia’s most adored babies, has celebrated her first birthday. To commemorate the occasion, Bindi, her husband Chandler Powell and his parents, her brother Robert, and mother Terri threw a birthday party at Australia Zoo surrounded by animals.
The couple posted a video of the event, in which little Grace poked at her birthday cake, much to the delight of her family. “We’re celebrating in true Australia Zoo fashion, with our khaki crew and our animal family… In the video, we can’t take our gaze away from her,” Chandler stated.
Grace, dressed in a cute white puffy dress, then attempted to play her xylophone, a gift from Uncle Robert. Bindi, 23, took to Instagram to pay tribute to her daughter after the festivities.
“Happy birthday, my noble warrior. After a year of witnessing your lovely heart blossom into the most extraordinary person,” Bindi’s post started. “Grace, you’ve been an old soul since the beginning. Being your mother is the greatest blessing in the world. I love you forever, unconditionally, and infinitely.”
On her first birthday, Chandler also wrote to Grace, “It’s been one year since you came into our lives and yet it feels like you’ve been with us forever.” I had no idea I had so much love to give. “Congratulations on your first birthday, sweetheart.” March 25 is a special day for the Irwin/Powel family because it is Grace’s birthday, but it is also Bindi and Chandler’s wedding anniversary.
When COVID restrictions prevented them from having a large celebration, the couple married in an intimate ceremony at Australia Zoo in 2020. Terri, Bindi’s mother, took to Twitter to congratulate Bindi and Chandler on their remarkable achievement.
“Two years of love, joy, goals, and dreams. It’s been incredible to watch your family grow with beautiful Grace Warrior, and to know that your adventure is just getting started. I am extremely proud of you both,” she penned something. Because of the proximity of the two events, the day is even more special.
Bindi married Chandler on March 25, 2020, at 5:49 p.m., and gave birth almost exactly a year later on March 25, 2021, at 5:52 p.m., a three-minute difference. Bindi discovered the lovely coincidence while mindlessly scrolling through her camera roll in November last year.
“Grace Warrior was born on March 25, 2021, at 5:52 p.m. We just found out that Chandler and I exchanged vows and were married exactly 3 minutes earlier on March 25, 2020. Three minutes have passed. This is the reason I believe in miracles,” at the time, she captioned a post.
