Ever since the passing of her father ten years ago, the world has been so impressed with Bindi Irwin’s enthusiasm for life and her constant grace and poise as she grew and matured.

Now, the teen, who will turn 17 on Friday, has told Entertainment Tonight about her new relationship.

“There is someone special in my life right now, and I’m really happy with that,” she said.

Though Bindi didn’t reveal who the new guy was, she has been spending a lot of time with 18-year-old US wakeboarder, Chandler Powell.

Just last week, Bindi posted a photo to her Instagram account announcing that Powell had joined the Wildlife Warriors team as a global ambassador.


Bindi referenced her dad’s stance on boyfriend before his tragic passing, “Dad always said you can’t date till you’re 40, and he has to be able to swim across our largest crocodile pond before he can go out with you,” she said.
