Bindi Irwin’s Boyfriend Pens Romantic Tribute for Her Birthday: ‘You Inspire Me to Be a Better Man!’

In the fickle game of love, it can often feel like we hear about a celebrity break-up every other day. But then there are always the exceptions that restore our faith in humanity. And as Bindi Irwin rings in her 20th birthday, her boyfriend of three years, Chandler Powell, is reminding us of the power of young love.

On July 23, the wake-boarding pro shared a beautiful beach-side photo with Bindi during a snorkeling trip, complete with a heartfelt tribute to his “life adventure buddy.”

“Happy Birthday, @bindisueirwin! This will forever be my favourite day of the year. Celebrating the one that I love, my life adventure buddy,” Chandler wrote in a caption. “The one who in her spare time can be found drinking tea, writing letters, and getting flowers for everyone she cares about.

The 21-year-old continued, “Bee, you are the strongest person I know and spread so much kindness every single day. You inspire me to be a better man and I thank my lucky stars for every moment we spend together. I love you. Happy birthday.”

During an appearance on Today ahead of her birthday celebrations, Chandler revealed he had “a few surprises” in store for Bindi. “I won’t reveal them quite yet, but I did get her a beautiful bouquet of flowers,” he shared. Bindi added, “He got them for me early because every day should be a birthday celebration so that was nice!”

Like her parents’ fateful first meeting while Steve Irwin was performing a crocodile show, Australia’s wildlife princess first met Chandler in 2013 when she took his family on a tour of the Australia Zoo in Queensland.

The pair hit it off and Chandler, ever the gentleman, asked Bindi’s mother Terri Irwin for her blessing to keep in touch with the star.
