Crikey, Grace Warrior is One. Here’s Bindi Irwin’s First Year of Motherhood

Hip, hip hooray, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell turns ONE today! From cassowary chicks to echidnas and tortoises, we’ve seen little Grace meet them all in her own backyard. Let’s take a look at Bindi Irwin and husband Chandler’s photo album as we celebrate this special little girl’s first birthday!

March 25th marks Grace’s first birthday (and Bindi and Chandler’s second wedding anniversary) and my oh my, this little cutiepie has almost grown into a toddler right before our very eyes.

A family photo album for all

One of Australia’s favourite families, both Bindi and Chandler have been incredibly generous in inviting us into their world  via social media. They love to spoil us with snippets of home life in the close-knit Irwin-Powell tribe. We love the candid snaps and cheeky captions from their Instagram account.

Bindi shared a selection of their favourite moments from Grace’s birthday party, complete with cake (and of course various animals from Australia Zoo!). What a gorgeous little girl, and check out the awe and wonder with the animals!

Growing up, zoo style

Growing up in a zoo appears to be just how we imagine life in Australia Zoo would be like. Days are dotted with visits to a menagerie of animals, khaki-clad parents and regular sightings of ‘Funcle’ Robert and ‘Bunny’ Terri. It’s an amazing environment to grow up in, we’re sure!

Perhaps what we couldn’t predict was just how naturally parenthood appeared to come to Bindi and Chandler in their early 20s. Every photograph they share of their family radiates sunshine, joy and a relaxed family. They clearly adore their littlest Wildlife Warrior, as well as each other. Nawwww love! These guys are #goals.

The Irwin-Powell family in 2022!

The last few months have flown by since the New Year when Bindi showed off her brand new tattoo ink! Here’s a look at some of the gorgeous moments the Powell-Irwin family have recently shared.

Grace loves the beach!

Bindi recently shared how much Grace enjoys the beach and watching her dad and uncle surf. Bindi’s a smart mum, check out the Instagram reel below to see just how she gets Grace and all the beach gear down to the sand. CLEVER.

There’s lots of encouragement and practice being had and by the look of it, those confident first steps can’t be too far away. Go, Grace!

Love makes the world (and Australia Zoo) spin round

Love really does make the world spin round with the Irwin-Powells. These guys are never short of a loving look, a tender touch or sweet words about each other.

Genetics is a crazy thing

This comparison photo is doing the rounds on Instagram of baby Bindi compared to daughter Grace and we can see more and more of Bindi’s gene pool creeping in as Grace gets older. One thing we do know for sure is that Grace is one beautiful little girl!

Crikey, how she’s grown – a year of Grace!

We all know babies grow like weeds. Take a look at just how much Grace has grown and changed in looks through the year.

Newborn cuteness to smiling at two months!

From three months to five months old we started to see Grace’s cheerful little personality shine. She’s the SWEETEST.
