“Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light,” she wrote. “Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s. 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.”

Bindi had previously given us a clue to her daughter’s middle name when in August 2020, the couple announced they were expecting.

“Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021,” she wrote in an adorable pregnancy announcement on Instagram.

Chandler also shared his own heartfelt caption on Instagram, welcoming his daughter to the world and promising her she “will be surrounded by a whole lot of love.”

“Thank you for gracing your beautiful mother and me on our wedding anniversary, so excited to have you home,” he wrote.

“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,” Bindi wrote.

Congratulations Bindi and Chandler! You are going to be wonderful parents.
