Born July 24, 1998, Bindi Sue Irwin is a TV personality, author, actress, singer, conservationist and zookeeper.
She’s the daughter of Terri Raines and the late Steve Irwin.
She began her career at a young age, hosting the documentary Bindi the Jungle Girl.
Bindi carried on her father’s work in television and nature conservation.
She has achieved worldwide fame for her work in television, earning her numerous awards, including the Daytime Emmy Award and the Most Popular New Female Talent Logie Award.
Irwin has not been as active in television as she was at an early age, leaving many to wonder where she is now.
What Has Irwin Been Up To?
Irwin is still actively involved in wildlife conservation and television. However, her life hasn’t been without challenges. Let’s take a look.
Irwin is married to Chandler Powell, an American professional wakeboarder she met in 2013 at the Australian Zoo when they were teenagers.
They began dating in 2019 and later got married in March 2020 in a small ceremony at the Australian Zoo due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, on March 25, 2021, on her first anniversary.
Irwin spends a lot of time with her family at the Zoo, taking her daughter with her on most of her wild adventures.
She is a fun-loving full-time mom who enjoys playing with her daughter.
Irwin underwent surgery for endometriosis in March 2023, a condition she had suffered from for about 10 years.
Endometriosis is a medical condition that occurs when tissue similar to the uterine lining grows outside the uterus.
In Irwin’s case, she experienced nausea, cramping and fatigue.
Irwin struggled with mental illnesses such as depression, PTSD, and anxiety.
Since treatment, she has been an advocate for endometriosis, helping women struggling with the condition to find answers and overcome stigma.
After the surgery, Irwin underwent a long recovery process, taking one step at a time. She has since fully recovered and resumed work full-time
Bindi continues to work at the Australia Zoo alongside her mother, Terri, and brother, Robert, carrying on the legacy of her late father, Steve Irwin.
She is a global ambassador for wildlife conservation and has been involved in several initiatives to protect endangered species.
She also hosts her TV show on Animal Planet called “Crikey! It’s the Irwins” which follows her family’s adventures at the zoo and their efforts in conservation.
In addition to her work with animals, Bindi is also an advocate for mental health awareness and has spoken publicly about her struggles with anxiety and depression.
She uses her platform to raise awareness and funds for various causes, including wildlife conservation, animal welfare, and mental health initiatives.
Irwin is also actively involved in philanthropy work through the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve and the Wildlife Warriors Worldwide organization, which she co-founded with her family.
Despite being only 25 years old, Bindi has already accomplished so much and continues to inspire others with her passion for animals and dedication to making a positive impact on the world.
