"Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior.

"Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad.

"We couldn't wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives. Your support means the world to us. Please let me know your best advice and send good vibes & prayers to our little sweetheart. Love & light."

Irwin and Powell married in a ceremony at Australia Zoo on March 25, 2020, just before lockdown restrictions kicked in across Queensland.

"We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend," Bindi confirmed on Instagram following the wedding.

"There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now."

The couple announced their pregnancy just five months later.

The newborn is the first grandchild for Terri Irwin and the late Steve Irwin.
