Hollywood and homegrown celebrities have expressed their delight at Bindi Irwin’s pregnancy, announced on Instagram on Tuesday.
Modern Family star Ariel Winter, Stranger Things actor Millie Bobby Brown, celebrity chef Curtis Stone and Olivia Newton John – even Mattel’s Barbie and a celebrity Pug – were among tens of thousands of well wishers.
Irwin, 22, married American wakeboarder Chandler Powell, 23, in March this year at Australia Zoo, with limited guests due to the pandemic.
The couple posted a picture of themselves on Irwin’s Instagram account holding a mini wildlife warrior suit.
The daughter of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin told her 3.7 million followers she couldn’t wait to share the news, even though it was only her first trimester.
“Your support means the world to us. Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes & prayers to our little sweetheart,” she wrote.
The baby is due in 2021.
Wilkinson said she had tears in her eyes about the “beautiful news”.
“Terri is going to be the best grandma!!!” she wrote.
McManus thanked the couple for “spreading the joy right when we need it”.
