One thing Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell won’t run out of during isolation? Figs!

The newlyweds revealed the fruity wedding gift that actor Russell Crowe sent them in honor of their recent early wedding.

The Australian couple shared a photo of the gifted fig tree on Instagram on Tuesday, to thank the New Zealand actor and also honor his 56th birthday.

“Happy Birthday, @russellcrowe 💙,” Irwin, 21, wrote alongside the post. “‪You’ll always be part of our family. Even though we can’t see you right now, we’re giving the beautiful fig you gifted us a hug and thinking of you. Hope your day is extraordinary.”

One of the images showed the Dancing With the Stars champ and her 23-year-old new husband posing alongside the Port Jackson fig tree.

“Presented to Bindi and Chandler to commemorate their wedding. Love from, Russell Crowe and family,” read a note tied to the trunk with white ribbon.

The young couple tied the knot in March at the Irwin family’s Australia Zoo in Queensland, Australia. Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, they wed ahead of their initial plans.

"We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend," Irwin wrote alongside her announcement. "There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now."

"We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe," she added.

March 25th 2020 ❤️ We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now. We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe. We wish all of our friends and family could have been there with us, however it’s lovely that we will be able to share photos and videos. Right now we’re encouraging the world to hold onto hope and love, which will carry us forward during this profound time in history. Today we celebrated life and revelled in every beautiful moment we shared together in our Australia Zoo gardens. Mum helped me get ready, Robert walked me down the aisle, Chandler became my husband and together we lit a candle in Dad’s memory. We shared tears and smiles and love. Thankfully, since we all live at Australia Zoo as a family, we could be there for each other. To everyone reading this - stay safe, social distance and remember LOVE WINS!

The conservationist talked with ET about the upcoming nuptials last July, sharing how the couple chose Australia Zoo because that’s where she feels “closest” to her late dad, Steve Irwin, who died in 2006.

"The most important thing is getting married here at Australia Zoo because this is where I feel closest to dad," she said. “I want to make sure that my mom is there, my brother is there, and that it's a really close family event and we'll remember dad, whether it's a clip that we play of dad or something that just reminds us of him. But having the wedding here at Australia Zoo, that's what means the most with my family. It'll be really special.”
