Bindi Irwin Surprise Wedding


Bindi Irwin is a married woman after tying the knot in a surprise wedding to fiancé Chandler Powell on Wednesday. "We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now," the 21-year-old Irwin wrote on Instagram alongside a pic of them kissing at the altar. She added that the nuptials weren't what she'd originally planned, but that they decided to change things up amid the coronavirus pandemic. "We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding," she explained. "This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe." Us Weekly notes that they got hitched just hours before the Australian government enforced a nationwide lockdown. However, Irwin added that she was able to celebrate alongside mom Terri and brother Robert because "we all live at Australia Zoo as a family."
