“They’ve been talking about starting a family since she was 19, but her mother Terri begged her to wait until she was 21,” a source told OK!.
“They’ve upheld their end of the bargain so now they can’t wait to start trying for a baby.
Bindi’s already told friends she would not be fussed if she were a pregnant bride.”
And, according to the publication, Terri is delighted with their decision to start a family. “If Bindi and Chandler have a baby soon then she’ll have a whole new generation of Irwins to raise!” adds the source.
On July 24, Bindi Irwin announced that she was engaged to her boyfriend of six years.
Taking to Instagram, Powell wrote of the momentous occasion: "She said YES! ❤️💍 Almost 6 years ago we met at Australia Zoo. I immediately fell head over heels for her kind and thoughtful heart that radiates so much light.
"Proposing in her very favourite place in the zoo, surrounded by animals, seemed like the perfect way to embark on this incredible new chapter in our lives. Bee, I love you more than anything in this world and I always will."
Taking to the comment section of her fiance's post, Bindi gave their fans an insight into her engagement ring.
"For those wondering about my ring, I'm so happy to share," Bindi began.
"My ring features a lab-grown diamond and is made with rose gold recycled metal. Chandler was incredibly thoughtful when he chose it. The ring captures the essence of who I am (with its vintage flare) and our life together with the twisted band and scattered diamonds."
