She certainly hasn’t been shy when it comes to gushing about boyfriend Chandler Powell, but Bindi Irwin has revealed the sweet moment she knew that her relationship was getting serious.

And, unsurprisingly, it had to do Australia Zoo.

“I love seeing you in khaki, it makes me so happy,” the 18-year-old happily told Powell during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Irwin then explained seeing her 19-year-old beau – who she has been dating, long-distance, since 2013 – in the ubiquitous khaki uniform for the first time felt truly special.

“It’s this really big thing for me,” the animal lover said. “It was kind of one of those moments that was a real defining moment for me, because you know, it’s only the people who are the closest to us that get their khakis.

“So it was kind of like, this really big step.”

Powell first donned the zoo’s infamous uniform for the annual “croc jump” in August, which, as Irwin pointed out, was “a cool way to break in your khakis.”


And the young couple seem to be going from strength to strength, with Irwin following up her sweet sentiments with a loving Instagram post.

“How bless I am to have you in my life,” she wrote. “Thank you for everything.

“Let’s always have adventures together like this. You’re amazing.”

Ah, young love.
