Bindi Irwin revealed that she and Chandler Powell married in March at a ceremony with no guests due to the coronavirus. That's about it as far as friends and loved ones go. but it's cool, 'cause the gal ends here by spreading a pretty important message.

Irwin added: "Right now we're encouraging the world to hold onto hope and love, which will carry us forward during this profound time in history". Today we celebrated life and revelled in every lovely moment we shared together in our Australia Zoo gardens.

Her little brother Robert walked her down the aisle on a day that was filled with "smiles and tears".

"We want to acknowledge Steve by all of us lighting this candle for him, but you know, I guess in some ways it's not necessary because Steve will be there anyway", she told The Courier Mail.

"July 24th 2019. On my birthday I said "yes" and "forever" to the love of my life", she captioned a photo of the couple.
