Bindi Irwin has shared a sneak peek into her husband Chandler Powell’s ‘wild’ birthday bash at Australia Zoo this week.
Chandler, who turned 27 on Tuesday, made it a family affair, with daughter Grace Warrior, two, along with in-laws Terri and Robert and his girlfriend Rorie Buckey in attendance.
The American wakeboarder kept to the famous family’s wildlife theme, with native bouquets hanging from an outside event space and a three-tiered cake of the same theme.
Chandler beamed in the photos as he held little Grace in his arms while standing over the confection.
‘Celebrating Chandler Powell is one of my favourite things in the world. Happy Birthday, sweetheart,’ Bindi wrote in the caption.
A number of the couple’s celebrity friends wished the father-of-one a happy birthday in the comments section.
‘Happy happy birthday Chandler. Thanks for being one of the good ones,’ comedian Rove McManus wrote.
‘Happy birthday to your sweetest hubby! Sending you all love,’ Emmy Perry wrote.
‘Happy birthday,’ model Ellie Gonsalves added.
Just hours earlier, Bindi choked back tears as she wished Chandler a happy birthday in a sweet Instagram message.
‘I was trying to think how to fully encapsulate how wonderful and extraordinary you are and I think I’d probably need the rest of my life just to be able to put it into words,’ Bindi said.
‘Any time we are having a wonderful, joyful moment in life, I love getting to celebrate it with you.’
Bindi then started crying as she described Chandler as the ‘kindest man on earth’ in the tender clip.
‘You mean the world to me and Grace and I don’t know what I would do without you. You are the sunshine of our lives. You are the kindest man on earth. The strength of our family,’ she said.
Bindi went on to describe the couple as ‘best friends’.
‘The best part about our marriage, is that above it all, we are best friends and I just love doing life with you. It’s so much fun. I know that Grace agrees. Have the very best birthday. I love you,’ she finished.
Bindi recently marked ten years of their relationship.
Underneath a gallery of photos, she wrote in the caption: ‘Almost 10 years ago I fell in love with your kind heart. I’ll be here loving you for the rest of my existence.’
Soon after Bindi made the post, Chandler replied in the comments: ‘So many wonderful memories fit into one decade with so many more to come. I love you more and more every day.’
Bindi’s mum Terri Irwin also weighed in, offering the couple her well-wishes.
‘You and Chandler are perfect together. Perfect couple, parents, and soulmates for the rest of time. I love you both!’ she said.
Bindi and Chandler married on March 25, 2020 and welcomed Grace exactly one year later, on their first wedding anniversary.
