'They’ve been talking about starting a family since she was 19, but her mother Terri begged her to wait until she was 21,' spills a source to 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 that she would not be fussed if she were a pregnant bride,' they continue.
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 generations of Irwins to raise!' adds the source.
Chandler asked Bindi’s hand in marriage on her 21st birthday at the Zoo under the pretence that they were doing a photoshoot.
The keen wakeboarder then got down on one knee. 'It seemed like the perfect way to embark on this incredible chapter in our lives,' he spilled.
As first revealed by New Idea this week, Bindi would no doubt be keen to have a baby soon to give Terri a grandchild. 'Honestly, all I want in life is Mum’s happiness,' Bindi previously admitted.
While Bindi and Chandler have only just announced the news, friends, family and fans are already talking about where the couple might say ‘I do’.

With Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast such an important part of their relationship – and the location of the proposal – the venue could be part of their big day.
The Hollywood star was a close pal of Steve Irwin’s and shares a special friendship with Terri, so Russell may play a special role in the wedding, like offering his Coffs Harbour home as a venue or walking Bindi down the aisle.
