Crikey—Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell are finally engaged!
The Discovery star and her longtime love shared the news on social media on Wednesday with a series of adorable photos.
"On my birthday I said 'yes' & 'forever' to the love of my life," the 21-year-old captioned her post. "Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness. I'm so looking forwarding to spending our forever together as your wife. Here's to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love. Now let’s get married already!"
They look so in love—and did you see that ring?! Not only is it gorgeous, but it also holds a very special meaning to the couple. Bindi explained in the comments section of her post that it's a lab grown diamond made with rose gold recycled metal.
"Chandler was incredibly thoughtful when he chose it, the ring captures the essence of who I am (with its vintage flare) and our life together, with the twisted band and scattered diamonds," she wrote.
He also put a lot of thought into where he was going to pop the question, ultimately settling on the place they met: the Australia Zoo.
"After Bindi’s birthday celebration at Australia Zoo, we had a photoshoot organized to celebrate her turning 21," Chandler revealed to People. "Just before we started the shoot, I took her to a special part of [the zoo] to ask the girl of my dreams to become my wife. These past five years together have been the best of my life and we look forward to a lifetime of magical moments to come."
The 22-year-old opened up more about the dreamy proposal on Instagram—so grab some tissues if you haven't already started crying.
"I immediately fell head over heels for [Bindi's] kind and thoughtful heart that radiates so much light," Chandler wrote. "Proposing in her very favorite place in the zoo, surrounded by animals, seemed like the perfect way to embark on this incredible new chapter in our lives."
Bindi's mother Terri Irwin also spoke out about the exciting news, revealing that her late husband would definitely approve.
"Best day ever! Chandler asked and beautiful [Bindi] said yes," she gushed on Twitter. "I am so very happy, and I know Steve would be too."
You're definitely crying by now, so here's a shot of the newly engaged couple with a koala to lighten the mood.
Congrats to Bindi and Chandler!
