Bindi Irwin is smitten with her 19-year-old boyfriend.

“A soul who makes me smile no matter where I am in the world.”

She might only be 17, but Bindi Irwin has proved that age is no barrier, when it comes to sweet, sweet L-O-V-E.

The dancing/singing/acting/hosting powerhouse has Instagrammed a heartfelt post to her boyfriend Chandler Powell on his 19th birthday today, telling him (and her 800,000 followers), “I’m blessed to be a part of your world.” 

Adorable, right?!


Clearly smitten with her professional American wake boarder boyfriend, Bindi’s post is probably the most eloquent, touching, public love dedication written by a 17-year-old, ever. Seriously. It feels wrong that Richard Mercer isn’t dictating it to me in his soulful deep voice right now.

I mean just look at the love heart emoji Bindi put at the end. Modern day romance knows no bounds.

Apparently, the couple have been together since 2013. Which I’m not going to focus on too much because that’s longer than any relationship I’ve had in my entire life… and I’m in my twenties.

In light of this depressing reality, let’s all watch Bindi perform a beautiful contemporary dance routine while I quietly sob about the fact that a 17-year-old has more talent in her left index finger than I do in my entire body.
