AceShowbiz - Bindi Irwin wants Russell Crowe to know she appreciated his thoughtful gift. Nearly two weeks after she tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Chandler Powell, the daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin made public what the Hollywood actor gave her and her husband for their wedding as she celebrated his birthday.
On Tuesday, April 7, the 21-year-old conservationist shared two Insragram photos capturing a Port Jackson Fig Tree gift. She and her husband were all smiles posing with the native Australian plant in one picture. The other snap offered a close-up look at the note from the "Robin Hood" star that read, "Presented to Bindi and Chandler to commemorate their wedding. Love from, Russell Crow and family."
Along with the Fig Tree photos, the Season 21 winner of "Dancing with the Stars" wrote, "Happy Birthday, @russellcrowe." She continued, "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."
Bindi married Chandler in an intimate ceremony taking place in the Australia Zoo gardens on March 25. Although she had been planning her nuptials for nearly a year, the older sister of Robert Irwin admitted that the coronavirus crisis forced her to make last-minute changes.
"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," she explained in an Instagram post. "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 continued. "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."
