Bindi Irwin constantly shares the sweetest things about her boyfriend, Chandler Powell, on social media. But Irwin just might have all the other ones beaten with this new Instagram post.
Irwin and Powell spend most of the year in a long distance relationship. While long distance, to some of us, is a state or two over, these two have roughly 10,500 miles in between them. Powell attends the University of Central Florida. Irwin lives in Australia, where her family owns a wildlife zoo called Australia Zoo. All these mushy Instagram posts might be inexcusable if the couple lived near each other, but because of the distance we'll make an exception. There are so few ways to make someone feel loved when there's an ocean between you!
Now that it's summer (or, I guess, winter in Australia) Powell and Irwin are together at last! She celebrated him with this gorgeous photo of him in the sunset.
This is one of my favourite photos of you @chandlerpowell. Thank you for being such a light in my life. You are there for me during the challenging times and the beautiful moments. I love your kindness, your patience and your strength. You are an extraordinary human being and a true blessing. #ForeverMySunshine☀️️❤️
"Thank you for being such a light in my life," Irwin wrote. "You are there for me during the challenging times and the beautiful moments. I love your kindness, your patience and your strength."
She hash-tagged "Forever my sunshine," her nickname for Powell. In previous posts, she's referred to him as sunshine, once even calling him "living sunshine." I love a good theme.
Fans are possibly more in love with Bindler, my new nickname for the pair, than Bindler is with each other. The comments underneath her Instagram post all say things like "Get married!" and "You guys give me hope."
Hopefully this summer lasts forever. Irwin's post saying good-bye to Powell as he returned to Florida last December was too adorable to handle. "Dropping you off at the airport and waving goodbye, it never gets easier," Irwin said.
You are flying back to the USA today. Dropping you off at the airport & waving goodbye, it never gets easier. Thank you for the most wonderful adventures these last few months. We even got to celebrate your 20th birthday here in Australia together, hiking through the Great Dividing Range! I've known you since you were 16 and every day, from the very first day I met you, you've been my sunshine. I will see you again soon! Thank you for everything, you always make me smile, no matter how far apart we may be. Have fun while you're away, go find lots of manatees in Florida for me! I miss you so much already. You really do mean the world to me. ❤️ @chandlerpowell
