Bindi Irwin celebrated her boyfriend Chandler Powell’s 19th birthday on Saturday by sharing the most adorable snap of the couple on her Instagram, accompanied by a loving note.
“Happy birthday to a person who inspires me every day,” the 17-year-old Dancing With the Stars favorite captioned the black-and-white photo of the beaming couple. “A soul who makes me smile no matter where I am in the world, despite any amount of distance.”
“Thank you for the endless hugs, late night conversations about life, holding my hand when a loud noise scares me and laughing along with all my bindi moments,” Irwin continued. “I’m blessed to be a part of your world.”
"It's really nice to have that support. I have my family, my mom and brother here with me, and then to have Chandler here as well," Irwin told ET at the time. "It's really funny because every night I'll come home and he'll be like, let's get the ice, let's get a cup of tea and let's get you food. It's kind of this checklist. I think that love and support is just something we all need in life. We need those people to keep us going."
Irwin hasn’t been shy about showing her love for Powell on social media. She also shared this intimate pic of the two of them.
"He's here. Thank you for always making me laugh, helping me to ice my foot when it hurts, making me tea and hugging me when I'm tired. You're amazing," Irwin wrote.
As Irwin approaches the DWTS finale, the fan-favorite is old school when it comes to keeping the romance alive in a long-distance relationship. For her, handwritten love letters do the trick.
"I am one of those old fashion people and I love to write," Irwin told ET in October. "So, I write a lot. Like hand write letters. I write lots and lots of letters."
