According to the insider, the “real side” of married life is setting in for the pregnant 22-year-old, who is expecting the couple’s first child next year.

Bindi and Chan are getting their first taste of the real side of wedded bliss,” says a source.

“They’ve been together as kids for a long time, but the reality of impending parenthood is setting in, and it’s intimidating at any age let alone the fact that Bindi’s only 22.”

Bindi and Chandler tied the knot earlier this year at Australia Zoo, even bringing their nuptials forward to March 25 in order to get married before the country went into lockdown. Just five months later, the couple announced they were expecting a baby, making for a whirlwind of celebrations.

However, now that the dust has settled, the source believes the reality of what’s ahead for the young couple is truly hitting home.

“The bickering out of pure exhaustion must feel monumental to them,” dishes the source.

Further to that, the source claims that US-expat Chandler is feeling increasingly homesick. As a result, the couple are said to be on tenterhooks, as evidenced by Bindi reportedly ditching her wedding ring.

Bindi’s been seen around the zoo not wearing her wedding ring a couple of times now, and at first everyone assumed it was because she might be feeling a bit puffy,” the source reveals. “But now there are whispers of trouble in paradise, and it could well be her way of showing Chandler she’s not too happy.

“Bindi’s emotions are running high,” the source adds.

“I’m sure they’ll be fine and it’s just teething problems. But to Bindi and Chandler, given how young they are, it must feel like everything’s falling apart.”
