Bindi Irwin has opened up about her romance with “old-fashioned gentleman” Chandler Powell in the January issue of The Australian Women’s Weekly.
The 17-year-old Dancing Queen, who appears on the cover of the magazine, says she has never met anyone who “gets” her like the 19-year-old professional wakeboarder does.
“My mum has always described him as an old-fashioned gentleman,” Bindi says. “He’s always there to keep me going. He’s a sweet, sweet person.
“He’s the first person I’ve met who understands my life – the travel and the work and that real dedication and determination. I think that’s why I love him so much – because he gets my world.”
In the candid interview, Bindi discusses finally dealing with her father Steve’s death, the pressure she feels to succeed and her plans for her future.
