It appears that Bindi Irwin and her boyfriend Chandler Powell might be taking their relationship to the next level!
In a loved up Instagram snapshot from Valentine’s Day, the 18-year-old gave a shout-out to Chandler, in which she referred to him as her ‘forever boyfriend’.
‘Valentine's Day. A day to celebrate love and happiness. (And an excuse to give endless amounts of hugs),’ she wrote.
‘This picture captures my forever Valentine @chandlerpowell, in gorgeous#Australia 🌸🌿 These really are the pictures of true happiness. I am blessed to be surrounded with the people that I love with all my heart.
‘The power of love is undeniable and the glue that holds us all together. To have real balance in life, we must find the light in every day. So here's to love, to hope, to peace and kindness.’
Bindi and Chandler met in November 2013, when he was visiting the Australia Zoo. They embarked on a long-distance relationship, using Skype and FaceTime to keep in touch.
The young star admitted their long-distance relationship isn't always easy, but her boyfriend’s thoughtfulness makes it work.
‘It's nice when you find somebody who's just endlessly kind and understands you and is really like-minded. I always get really excited,’ she told ET. ‘I'm really blessed and grateful to have him in my life.’
‘I think, I have my family and then Chandler has become a part of the family, so I'm happy with where I'm at.’
