‘Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light.’

Bindi revealed that Grace is a family name on both hers and Chandler’s sides, while her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to her late father Steve Irwin.  

Steve died in September 2006 after being stabbed in the chest by a stingray barb as he was filming a documentary in shallow waters at the Great Barrier Reef.

At the time, his son Robert was two while his daughter Bindi was eight. 

Bindi finished: ‘There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl.’

‘She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed.’
