"Thankful": Bindi Irwin's touching tribute to her family

"Thankful": Bindi Irwin's touching tribute to her family

Only recently, Bindi announced her engagement to her boyfriend of six years, Chandler Powell, on her 21st birthday. 

And on Thursday the young conservationist shared a sweet post to her social media to pay tribute to her family. 

“Thankful to have such a beautiful family to hold my hand and share life's most magical moments,” Bindi wrote. 

Chandler also had a heartwarming message for his fiancee, writing: "We are all so thankful to have you and your light in our lives.”

The gorgeous images and sweet words had an effect on fans who took to the comments to share their own sentiments. 

“You are truly one of the best role models out there for girls growing up in these next generations. Thank you and congratulations,” one comment read. 

Another added: “Congrats! Your Dad would be so proud of you.”

It was just last week Bindi shared that she and her boyfriend would be tying the knot, and gushed over the beautiful surprise. 

The young star admitted she had no idea the proposal would take place and didn’t notice her brother snapping pics of the two as they shared their heartfelt moment. 

Robert took to Instagram at the time to say photographing his sister’s engagement was “one of the most special times ever.”

“I’ve photographed some pretty cool stuff in my time... nothing comes close to this. I was so happy and thankful that @chandlerpowell asked me to secretly document the moment that @bindisueirwin said yes!

“One of the most special times ever.”
