Bindi Irwin has come a long way from the little girl that made the sweetest cameo's in dad, Steve Irwin's, documentaries in the early '00s.
Since the untimely passing of Steve aka The Crocodile Hunter, in 2006, Bindi has managed to make a name for herself in both the television and music industry, following in her late father's footsteps with her passion for wildlife.
Most importantly, Bindi, along with the rest of the Irwin clan (mom, Terri, and brother, Robert) continue to keep Steve's legacy alive through the groundbreaking work that they do at Australia Zoo, where they live and work.
So, of course, the internet was suitably thrilled to see, not only that Bindi announced her surprise engagement on her 21st birthday, but that her now-finance proposed at Australia Zoo!
With wedding plans well and truly underway (keep scrolling for a glimpse of her dress!), news is in that her brother, Robert, will be walking her down the aisle.
Bindi Irwin is best known as the animal-loving daughter of Steve Irwin.Australia Zoo, which spans nearly 1000 acres and employs over four-hundred staff but was originally born from the tiny wildlife park that Steve's family moved to when he was just a child.
Bindi and her dad were very close.
Sadly, Steve passed away in 2006 from a stingray attack while filming in the Great Barrier Reef.

Now, over a decade after her father's death, Bindi continues to follow in her father's footsteps, along with the rest of her family.
And as you'd expect, this is where Bindi met her now-finance, Chandler Powell.
They've now been together for 6 years.
He regularly features on Bindi's social media.
And it seems like the couple have taken the next step in their relationship.
She shared various snaps of the happy occasion:

Mom, Terri, also tweeted a message of congratulations for her daughter.
