Bindi Irwin gushes as she reunites with boyfriend Chandler
BINDI Irwin has been reunited with American boyfriend Chandler Powell, two days into the new year.
The 18-year-old wildlife warrior and her professional wakeboarder boyfriend of two years spent Christmas apart, her at Australia Zoo in Queensland with mum Terri and brother, Robert, and Powell in the US.
"So happy to be back with beautiful @BindiSueIrwin. Can't wait for Australian school holiday excitement at Australia Zoo over the next month. Woo Hoo."
Shortly after, Irwin responded: "I missed you so much. Incredibly thankful to have you back in Australia".
Two days ago, on New Year's Eve, Powell shared a happy snap with his girlfriend with the caption: "2016 will be one I remember for the rest of my life. Thank you for making it so incredible. I can't wait to make 2017 even more memorable with you @BindiSueIrwin."
Powell shares Bindi's adventurous spirit and passion for wildlife. He is a global ambassador for Wildlife Warriors, a conservation organisation started by the late Steve Irwin.
You are flying back to the USA today. Dropping you off at the airport & waving goodbye, it never gets easier. Thank you for the most wonderful adventures these last few months. We even got to celebrate your 20th birthday here in Australia together, hiking through the Great Dividing Range! I've known you since you were 16 and every day, from the very first day I met you, you've been my sunshine. I will see you again soon! Thank you for everything, you always make me smile, no matter how far apart we may be. Have fun while you're away, go find lots of manatees in Florida for me! I miss you so much already. You really do mean the world to me. ❤️ @chandlerpowell
