Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell are preparing to become parents in 2021 and now, the 22-year-old has shared an exciting pregnancy milestone with her fans - plus, a brand-new picture of her growing bump.

In a photo shared on Instagram, the daughter of Terri and the late Steve Irwin, shared an image of herself and her beloved husband in the emu enclosure at their Australia Zoo home.

Rather than her traditional khaki uniform, the 22-year-old wildlife warrior looked radiant in a white T-shirt and denim overalls as she lovingly cradled her bump.

Meanwhile, husband Chandler donned a croc-themed shirt and holds a sign that reads: "20 weeks," surrounded by love hearts.

"Halfway there! 20 weeks pregnant and our baby girl is about the same size as a recently hatched emu chick," Bindi captioned the snap.

"The love I have for my sweetheart husband and our beautiful daughter is boundless."

Bindi's husband Chandler also shared the same photo, which was snapped by Bindi's younger brother Robert Irwin, and mused: "The three of us have made it to 20 weeks❤️ Our Baby Wildlife Warrior is now about the size of a newly hatched emu chick. We are halfway to meeting her. Can't wait to be a dad!"

With Bindi now at the half-way mark, it means her daughter is due at the end of March 2021.

Half-way mark: Bindi and Chandler celebrated reaching 20-weeks by sharing this stunning new family snap.

Bindi has kept her followers updated with her pregnancy by comparing her growing baby to native Australian animals, and fans are loving it.

"I love these updates," one commented on the post.

"I love how you compare the baby's size to different animals! So cute!" exclaimed another.

"I much prefer this way of saying the size so much better than describing as fruit," a third mused.

Pregnancy certainly suits Bindi and the Australia Zoo star recently revealed she is loving her latest maternity outfit.

"Now that I know the comforts of maternity jeans, I don't think I'll ever be able go back. Any other mamas out there that can relate?" she captioned a photo of herself in a pair of comfy maternity jeans and her signature khaki.

Fans loved her openness and it seems she's not the only fan of the garment.

"I still wear my maternity pants and I haven't been pregnant since 2016," joked one follower, while another added: "My kids are 9 and 3 and I still on occasion wear some of my old ones."

The Wildlife Warrior has kept fans up to date throughout her pregnancy.

Bindi and her wakeboard husband Chandler announced they were expecting their "Baby Wildlife Warrior" back in August.

"Chandler and I are proud to announce that we're expecting! It's an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you," Bindi penned on Instagram.

"Though I'm still in my first trimester, we really want you to be part of our journey from the beginning of this new life chapter. We couldn't wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives.

She added: "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."
