Steve Irwin's Daughter Bindi To Keep Her Father's Last Name
World treasure Steve Irwin's daughter Bindi Irwin has wed Chandler Powell in a beautiful ceremony at her father's Australian Zoo and opened up about her big name decision. She told Entertainment Tonight's Lauren Zima "I've kept Bindi Irwin. I think that for me personally, after dad passed away it was really important for me to feel close to him, and having his last name means so much to me."
Even her new husband American Chandler Powell said she's "an Irwin through and through." Bindi laughed when she stated "Chandler has become an Irwin now. It has become a part of me. Everyone has their own ideas, but the nice thing is that it's 2020 now, anything works!"
On the family's new show Crikey! It's the Irwins: Life in Lockdown fans will get an inside peek at their gorgeous wedding, that was almost ruined by paparazzi! Steve's wife Terri said her husband "would have tackled the helicopter out of the sky. He would have cried more than Robert and he probably would have built a chapel in an hour."
Bindi's younger brother Robert was openly emotional and crying "all happy tears" while walking his sister down the aisle. Catch Crikey! It's the Irwins on Animal Planet!
