Powell’s Family Quietly Waiting For Bindi Irwin Engagement

There's been years of rumours and speculation but it seems an engagement between Bindi Irwin and long term beau Chandler Powell could be sooner than we thought. 

Powell's grandfather told Woman's Day that they are 'quietly waiting' for an official announcement to be made. 

"It's been a while now, they're on their time frame, but we're quietly waiting (for an announcement)," John told Woman's Day. 

Happy Birthday to my friend, my team mate and the love of my life @ChandlerPowell ❤️ Words will always fall short in describing how much you mean to me. Your caring heart and strength inspires me every day. I love your hugs and the way you smile at me when I start singing while I make tea. I love watching you write in your journal every afternoon and when you surprise me with my favourite flowers just because. I love that you open every door for me and always bring an extra coat with you because you know I'll forget mine and be cold. I love it when you're so happy that you do a dance/wiggle (I have no other way to describe it) ❤️ I love your strength during challenging times. I love your kindness towards every person and animal you meet. I love you because of a thousand reasons that I could spend a lifetime counting. I am beyond thankful that we met on that November day in 2013. I can't wait for more adventures today, celebrating your 21st birthday together. Let's go hike a mountain! ☀️ You are my sunshine.

"They want to be sure the timing is right, because they are popular and they won't want any pressure on them."

As for plans of starting a family, John had an interesting perspective...

"Better to have a family in a zoo than a family be a zoo," he said. 

Bindi shared a lovely tribute to her man on his 21st birthday last week, professing her love. 

Chandler, who is originally from America, has been living at Australia Zoo with Bindi's family since March this year. 

Fingers crossed the lovers make an announcement shortly.
