Chandler Powell – Girlfriend, Wife, Children
According to Chandler Powell’s grandfather John DiCenzo, Powell was "obsessed" with the Irwin family, especially Steve Irwin, whom he watched on TV as a kid. Finally, in late 2013 he was able to meet and spend some time with the Irwin family while visiting Australia Zoo.
After receiving permission from zoo authorities and Terri Irwin, he began to write letters to Bindi Irwin in an old fashion way. Both loved to travel and soon their friendship turned to love. According to his girlfriend Bindi, it was hard for her to say exactly "when it turned into more".
The couple made their relationship official in September 2015. At that time Bindi was shooting season 21 of Dancing with the Stars, which she later went on to win. Since then there have been rumors about them being married. In March 2018 they participated in the annual wife-carrying competition at the Australia Zoo, which sparked rumors.
The rumors caught fire when Terri Irwin shared the couple’s picture on Twitter and commented that her daughter had been kissing frogs since she was a child, and it had finally paid off. A month later it was reported that they had moved in together.
After years of speculations and rumors, the couple announced their engagement via social media on July 24, 2019. They married on March 25, 2020. In August of the same year, it was revealed that they were pregnant with their first child. He and his wife welcomed daughter Grace Warrior Irwin Powell on March 28, 2021.
