1. She has a boyfriend. "There is someone special in my life right now, and I'm really happy with that," Bindi told ET. "Life is wonderful at the moment." Bindi didn't reveal her boyfriend's name, but she has been seen hanging out with professional wakeboarder Chandler Powell.

2. She can go glam. She might feel at home wading in ponds amongst snakes and crocodiles, but she cleans up nice as well, as evidenced by this gorgeous Instagram pic.

3. She's not on Facebook. She hasn't met a wild animal that she's been afraid of, but Facebook is one thing that totally freaks her out. "I have never joined the Facebook world, because to be truthful social media scares me to death," Bindi said. "It is kind of crazy how huge that world is, so I have never joined Facebook, but I do have Instagram and Twitter."

4. She's adamant about making her late father proud. "Mom and Dad are truly my heroes," Bindi said. "And I have to say, so is my little brother Robert. He's 11 and he's just the most amazing boy. He's so much like Dad sometimes it's a bit scary. Dad is and always will be my living, breathing superhero."
