Playing Bindi Irwin's Rep Shoots Down Marriage Rumors

Bindi Irwin seems to be in love, but her rep tells ET she's not ready to walk down the aisle just yet, despite recent tabloid rumors.

"There is no truth to these rumours, just tabloids being tabloids," Bindi's rep told ET in a statement on Wednesday.

The 17-year-old Dancing With the Stars champ, who turns 18 on July 24, has been in a relationship with 19-year-old wakeboarder Chandler Powell for the past year, and she raved about him when ET spoke to her in March.

"[Chandler] is a part of the family now," she said at the time. "I don't know who loves him more, me or my family."

When asked if Chandler could be "the one," Bindi admitted they have a special bond, but also acknowledged that she has a lot of living left to do.

"He's a huge part of my journey in life," she said at the time. "At this point in my life, I'm looking forward to a lot of things. I'm going to be 18. There's so much on the horizon!"

Despite the distance (he's from Florida, while she lives in Australia), the two have been going strong. Last month, Bindi shared an Instagram video showing the pair at breakfast.

"Can I have your strawberry?" Bindi asks her beau in the video.

"You can," Chandler responds without hesitation, giving up his only fruit.
