We've been obsessed with Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late and great Steve Irwin, since she was a child. Watching her grow up, it's been incredible to see her mature into a charismatic and successful 21-year-old. Well now, after being engaged to her longtime boyfriend for the past year, she's finally gotten married. 

No worries, no social distancing rules were violated. 

Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell have become one of our favorite couples. 

The two animal lovers living in Australia have captured our hearts through their romantic and jungle-filled posts. When they're not out here saving creatures of the wild, the two are affectionately showing us what true love is.

And when they announced their engagement last year, we were all over the moon.

"On my birthday I said ‘yes’ and ‘forever’ to the love of my life," she wrote. "Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness. I’m so looking forwarding to spending our forever together as your wife. Here’s to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love. — Now let’s get married already!"

Swoon. 

And now, she just revealed in an Instagram post that they're married. The two did it in an intimate ceremony that didn't violate the rules of social distancing. 

"March 25th 2020," she posted on Instagram. "We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now. We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe. We wish all of our friends and family could have been there with us, however it’s lovely that we will be able to share photos and videos."

We know her dad is smiling down proudly. 

As proud as we are of Bindi, we know her late father feels the same. Maybe there will be a bigger ceremony once all of this passes?
