The news comes four months after the couple secretly married at her family’s zoo. They surprised fans on March 25 when they announced that they had a low-key ceremony hours before the Australian government enforced a lockdown amid the COVID-19 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. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe,” Irwin wrote via Instagram at the time. “We wish all of our friends and family could have been there with us, however it’s lovely that we will be able to share photos and videos.”


The Animal Planet personality’s mother, Terri Irwin, helped her get ready for her wedding and her younger brother, Robert Irwin, walked her down the aisle. The bride and groom lit a candle in memory of Bindi’s late father, Steve Irwin, who died at age 44 in 2006 after a stingray attack.

Bindi and Powell started dating in 2013 and got engaged in July 2019.
