“Like any new mum, Bindi is eager to do things her own way and that’s not always possible with Terri around,” shares the insider.
While Bindi knows her mum’s heart is in the right place, she can still get a bit snappy with Terri for making suggestions or offering help.
“Even poor Robert hasn’t escaped the line of fire,” adds the source, who insists that things are slowly becoming a little too close for comfort for the new parents.
What’s more, Bindi is said to be preparing to break the news of her and Chandler’s imminent departure to her family as soon as possible.
“They’re both finding it impossible to get into a routine because Terri’s forever barging in when they’ve all just settled down for a nap,” says the source.
According to the insider, Bindi hopes Terri – who’s been dubbed ‘Grandma Bunny’ – will accept her decision to move out, because she has set her sights set on a home at Ironbark Station – a conservationist property purchased by Australia Zoo in 1994.
“It’s the ideal spot and perfect distance from the Zoo, and was one of her father’s favourite places,” explains the insider, who says 24-year-old Chandler “adores the place."
“Terri is only an hour or so drive away, but there Bindi can set up her own house, her own way. She loves her mother deeply, but setting up her own foundation is exactly what she needs."
“Grace’s birth signifies a new chapter for Bindi and Chandler.”
