Bindi Irwin was recently spotted leaving Landsborough Medical Centre in Queensland, looking distressed and slightly tearful as she walked out the premises alongside boyfriend Chandler Powell, 21.
The normally bubbly Aussie star was pictured looking downcast and a little concerned as onlookers wondered what could possibly be wrong with the 19-year-old.
Leaving the premises, Bindi was seen looking down at her phone intently as if she was reading something troubling before making a call to, most likely, her mother Terri, 53.
Chandler also peered down at the device and appeared a little distressed and as he accompanied his girlfriend to the car, Bindi wiped a few tears from her eyes as she sat down in the vehicle.
As she continued the phone call in their car, the wildlife activist appeared visibly worried.
The mood from the pair was a sharp turn from the good news that has circulated of late.
According to The Daily Mail the couple are taking the next step in their relationship, with reports surfacing that the couple have bought their first home in the lavish canals of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
The publication claimed the pair had purchased a luxury four-bedroom, three-bathroom property, complete with a jetty for their boat, Croc One.
The sweet duo has been dating since 2015 and rumours have often circulated that the young couple are planning on getting engaged very soon.
Terri recently sent fans – who were questioning whether an engagement was imminent – a message when she posted a cryptic tweet on St Patrick’s Day.
Terri posted a picture of Bindi as a young girl alongside one of Bindi with Chandler and the caption: ‘After many years of @bindiirwin kissing frogs, it finally paid off.’
The post was shared by the family’s good friend Hollywood star Russell Crowe, as well as by Bindi herself.
The message came just hours after Chandler posted a loved-up picture of him and his wildlife warrior sweetheart taken by his future brother-in-law Robert Irwin with the lengthy caption: ‘Moments like these walking by the river with my girl are what I live for. This photo encompasses what our everyday is about, constant laughter and no clue of where life will take us that day. That is the best way to live. Thank you Robert for capturing this special moment!’
In Bindi’s most recent social posts, she appeared in good spirits with her posting a cheerful image of herself with Chandler and a cheeky lemur descending in on the couple.
The pretty blonde wrote, ‘an accurate depiction of our relationship’ and tagged Chandler in on the post.
Fans later urged the couple, ‘to put a ring on it already.’
Bindi’s father Steve tragically died almost 12 years ago, and this year the family plan to continue his legacy with a new Crocodile Hunter-inspired television series set to air on Animal Planet.
‘There is so much on the horizon. We can’t wait to share our story as a family.’ Bindi posted a few months ago.
