Bindi Irwin's adorable boyfriend Chandler Powell has posted a beautiful tribute to his love, celebrating the gorgeous star's 21st birthday.
The couple, who first got together in 2015, are celebrating Bindi's special milestone with a day full of activities at Australia Zoo in Queensland, the wildlife tourist attraction managed by the Irwin family on the Sunshine Coast.
Taking to Instagram, Chandler wrote: "Beautiful Bee, I love you so much. You're my best friend and whole world. I can't wait to celebrate your birthday tomorrow at #AustraliaZoo ❤️ Here's to another year and beyond of life changing adventures together."
He wrote the gorgeous caption alongside this cute couple pic of him and Bindi.

Bindi and Chandler are clearly made for each other, frequently sharing adorable loved-up couple snaps on their social media pages.
Bindi says her boyfriend is definitely "The One" and someone she hopes to spend the rest of her life with.
"I believe there's always someone for everyone and when you find that one, as we have found each other, it's a real blessing and a privilege," Bindi told The Australian Women's Weekly in 2017.
And she added that her late father Steve would have absolutely loved her man.
"I'm lucky I have found the one, the person I want to spend all my time with ... We all think Dad would have loved Chandler," she said.

In case you didn't already know, Chandler was actually a big fan of the Irwin family, even before he met Bindi.
Chandler's grandfather John DiCenzo told Woman's Day that he was obsessed with the Irwins and Bindi's late father Steve in particular.
"When the two of them met he was obviously awfully impressed, enough that he wrote a letter to the zoo and said 'Would it be all right if I wrote to her?'" Mr DiCenzo revealed.
"They both really bonded because they both travel so much and they talked about how to combine the travelling with school, something they're both very used to.
"Bindi likes writing letters just like Chandler - I guess that's old-fashioned with email and things these days. I think they talk every day they can. They use Skype, too."
DiCenzo adds that as a kid, Chandler loved watching Steve on TV.
"It's why people who know him - know his love of animals - just had their minds blown when they saw photos of him with Bindi when they got together," he said.

Even Bindi's Mum Terri is completely on board with her daughter's relationship and hopes that the pair will one day get engaged.
"I really think that this is a long-term situation. I mean, Chandler is perfect as well. I've never heard him swear. He doesn't drink. He's just awesome. He's the kind of man you hope for your daughter, so I think I'm lucky," Terri told Us Weekly last year.
