    Back in August, the 22-year-old daughter of the late Steve Irwin announced that she and husband Chandler Powell were expecting their first child together.

    "Chandler and I are proud to announce that we're expecting!" Bindi wrote on Instagram. "It's an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you."

    In a statement of his own, Chandler said: "Can't wait for our baby to meet everyone in person. Being a dad is already the highlight of my life."

    And last month, the couple announced the news that they're expecting a baby girl, with a zoo-themed reveal of course!

    Well, over the weekend, Bindi gave another update on her pregnancy and also posted her first baby bump picture, taken by her own mom.

    "Baby girl is doing great," she said. "Every time we get an ultrasound she's incredibly energetic and always moving around. She's now about the same size as a mountain pygmy-possum. Too cute!"

    Bindi and Chandler's pregnancy news comes months after the pair tied the knot at their zoo earlier this year just hours before the Australian government banned large weddings as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

    "We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend," Bindi said on the day. "There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now."
