"It's this really big thing for me," she adorably explained. "It was kind of one of those moments that was a real defining moment for me, because you know, it's only the people who are the closest to us that get their khakis."

"So it was kind of like, this really big step," Irwin continued, telling her boyfriend, "I love seeing you in khaki now. It makes me so happy."
