Terri Irwin has spoken out about how her daughter, Bindi, will be an "amazing" mother. This is just way too cute...
You might have already heard...But Bindi Irwin is expecting her first child!
Ever since their announcement last month, fans of the young crocodile hunter have been besides themselves with excitement.
However, news and updates regarding her pregnancy have been scarce.
She has been teasing us with the occasional update...Including the most adorable gender reveal!
But now...Mom Terri Irwin has spoken fondly of how "amazing" of a mom her daughter is going to be.
Now, Bindi has been in the public eye for quite some time...
Sadly, Steve passed away in 2006 from a stingray attack while filming in the Great Barrier Reef.And, at the young age of just 8-years-old, Bindi read out a eulogy during her dad's memorial service.
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...Terri, Bindi, and Robert have all worked hard to keep Steve's legacy alive through their important work at his pride and joy, Australia Zoo.
And as you'd expect, this is where Bindi met her now-husband, Chandler Powell.
They have now been together for almost 7 years.
She shared this picture on her Instagram...
Here's what Chandler wrote on his Instagram...
Of course, Bindi's younger brother, Robert, was quick to offer his congratulations to the happy couple.
And earlier this year, the happy day finally arrived.
It was a small and private ceremony...
They had no guests due to coronavirus restrictions...
They got married in a secluded location where Steve used to regularly film...
They felt their wedding location was "meant to be"...Speaking to PEOPLE, Bindi said: "Where we got married was such a special place to dad. It’s a beautiful little area where he had filmed for many years. It felt really wonderful and just meant to be."
Steve was with them throughout the entire ceremony...
And for an added touch...
She has even kept her surname as a legacy to her dad.ET, Bindi said: "I’ve kept Bindi Irwin. I think that for me personally, after dad [Steve Irwin] passed away it was really important for me to feel close to him, and having his last name means so much to me."
And then, just 5 months on from their wedding...The couple came forward with yet another exciting announcement.
She shared this photo of her and Chandler holding up a miniature khaki shirt...
Her husband, Chandler, seconded her announcement.
He wrote excitedly: "We’re going to be parents!! We have a baby Wildlife Warrior on the way coming in 2021. Becoming a dad is the highlight of my life. I cannot wait to embark on this new adventure and life chapter with my gorgeous wife, @BindiIrwin. Bee, you’re going to be the most amazing mother."

Updates were sparse, to say the least.
We're all eagerly waiting to see anything regarding the pregnancy.
Well, last month, Bindi and Chandler announced the gender of their baby...And in typical Irwin style, they didn't feel the need for an OTT gender reveal party and they simply took to Instagram to share the happy news... along with one of their favorite zoo animals, of course!
It's going to be a little girl!"Baby girl, you are our world. ❤️ Our beautiful daughter is now about the same size as a hatchling Aldabra tortoise and is as healthy as can be. We can’t wait for her arrival next year."
Comments of joy came flooding in for the young parents-to-be...Including brother Robert, who expressed his excitement over meeting his niece.
Chandler clearly can't wait to be a dad...And his love for Bindi and their daughter is truly beautiful.
The pregnancy seems to be healthy and well...
We can only imagine how excited Terri is to become a grandmother...And she has recently spoken about her hopes for Bindi's journey into motherhood.
Taking to Twitter, Terri posted an adorable mother-daughter snap and wrote:
I know @BindiIrwin will be an amazing mother, because she is the most wonderful daughter in the world. She always gives me the best advice. Most recently she said to me, 'Be sure to revel in your achievements, and not just worry about your next challenge'."
