If ever you thought Bindi Irwin was as squeaky clean as they come, you have to see how Australia’s favourite daughter and mum of one made an awesome start to the New Year – she now rocks some very cool, very on-brand tattoos!
Guys, Bindi Irwin isn’t a regular mum – she’s a cool mum.
It’s 2022 and Bindi gets inked!
Bindi has posted on her Instagram feed, sharing with her 4.8 million followers that not only does she have a beautiful family to show off and share, she also has some brand-new, permanently tattooed artwork to show off. Bindi now sports the handwriting of her late Dad, Steve Irwin, the original Wildlife Warrior and an alligator on her forearm along with a wreath on her wedding finger.
The post featuring Bindi’s arm and her sweet baby girl, Grace, looking all very interested in mama’s new accessories is captioned with:
The words I spoke to our daughter as I held her for the first time in my arms were, “My graceful warrior”. That’s how her name was born. This is my dad’s handwriting to keep him with me, always. Our dear alligator, Daisy, is next to these words to represent our conservation work as Wildlife Warriors. And my beautiful wedding ring in bloom. Validation every day of the three most important things in my life: family, purpose and unconditional love. ❤️ Since Grace’s breastfeeding journey ended, now felt like the perfect time for this empowering artwork.
It’s a thumbs up from the family
Now no one needs to give you a thumbs-up of approval when you tattoo your own body but it was really sweet to see Bindi’s family drop into the comment section on her Instagram post with encouraging words and a tick of approval – or in the case of Bindi’s brother Robert Irwin, the repeated raised hands emoji – which is even better than a tick emoji, let’s be honest. Bindi’s husband of almost two years, Chandler Powel left this sweet comment:
Such gorgeous artwork❤️ You amaze me every day. Each one is meaningful to mark this special time in our life together. Also, the Florida in me loves the alligator. 🐊 Love you so much.
Awwwww so sweet, and what a way to celebrate the end of a breastfeeding journey for Bindi and 9-month-old daughter Grace.
New year, new family photos from Bindi Irwin!
Tattoos weren’t the only new thing for the Irwin-Powell gang this year, Bindi also shared some beautiful new candid family photos captured on film (yes, old-school film!) by her talented Wildlife Warrior / photographer extraordinaire younger bro, Robert Irwin.
As nostalgic as ever, there’s a lot to be said about the grainy film images that just leave you feeling all the warm fuzziness of a new year with a young family. Check out the latest additions to the family album below.
1. Baby steps
Grace is being propped up by her mum while chatting to her Grandmother, Terri Irwin, who is referred to as Bunny by her granddaughter. I predict this little lady is close to taking steps on her own!
2. Peek-a-boo, I see you!
You just know this is a case of ‘where’s the baby? THERE SHE IS!!’.
3. So. Many. Birds.
Grace with her Dad, Chandler, and a frightening amount of pretty birds.
4. Grace is all of us watching Netflix over Christmas…
We’re taking bets – is Grace a die-hard Paw Patrol fan do you think?
5. Classic 1980s film situ
MAGIC. Terri clearly has a very special bond with the youngest member of her family.
6. The apple really didn’t fall far
Like mother, like daughter. The gene pool is strong in this one!
7. Sweet family moments
Dad busy at work and the girls call in to say hello? Remember these moments guys, they’re fleeting!
8. They see me rollin’…
Terri wheeling into 2022 with the most adorable passenger ever!
9. Dad’s got you, sweet girl
No doubt about it, Chandler is a hands-on dad and we love seeing him with his baby girl!
10. Adventure awaits!
2022 is guaranteed to be a big year for the Irwin fam as Grace approaches her first birthday. So many adventures await, she’ll be running on this foot bridge in no time!
We here at Mum Central hope that your New Year has been as magical as Bindi Irwin’s!
