We’re always excited to hear good news from the Irwin family. The children of the late Crocodile Hunter star and conservationist Steve Irwin have kept his legacy alive by promoting a love and care for animals.
So when Bindi Irwin revealed some heartwarming news to her fans on social media this week, she did it alongside some of her favorite creatures.
It’s been quite a year for Bindi: in March, she married her fiancee Chandler Powell at a private ceremony at the Australia Zoo.
And then last month, the couple announced they were expecting their first child!
Fans were naturally thrilled for the couple, and this week they shared their first pregnancy photos, showing off some ultrasound images of their baby-to-be. But in true Irwin fashion, they did it with the help of some animals!
Chandler held a koala and Bindi held a baby kangaroo. The couple says their animals are excited about the new baby.
“The animal joeys we care for are excited to meet our human joey,” Bindi wrote. “Baby Wildlife Warrior is about the size of a hummingbird now!”
In addition to providing an update about her baby, she gave some information about the animals in the photoshoot.
“Daniel the wallaby was orphaned in the wild and brought to our Wildlife Hospital,” Bindi wrote in a comment. “We are caring for him with the goal of one day releasing him back to the wild when he’s old enough.”
“Dexter the koala absolutely loves cuddles. He also enjoys munching on the best eucalyptus and snoozing in his trees.”
Chandler also posted a photo on his account, saying he “can’t wait for our baby to meet everyone in person.”
“Being a dad is already the highlight of my life,” Chandler wrote.
They also say they are going to instill their love and respect for animals into their new child.
“We can’t wait to teach our little one about the importance of protecting our planet and the beauty of the wildlife and wild places we love so much,” Bindi wrote.
What adorable photos! We can already tell that the next generation of Irwins is going to carry on the legacy of helping and protecting animals. Steve would be proud!
