This was some pretty desperately-needed good news in the world during a year where all kinds of hardships are being faced by all kinds of people, including the Irwins themselves, who had to re-arrange their entire wedding plans due to the pandemic.

In a new post, Bindi has opened up about the moment she learned she was pregnant.

"Reflecting on when we found out that we are going to be parent," Bindi wrote.

"Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still. I took a test and ran into the kitchen where Chandler was making us tea. He didn’t hear me come in so I speechlessly watched him pouring the water into my most loved hedgehog mug. This news would change the course of our future in the best way," she added.

"I started crying tears of pure joy and told my sweetheart husband that my test was positive," she said.

"In that short span of time the gorgeous baby I'm carrying became the most important part of our lives," Bindi explained. "It is such a blessing knowing that this tiny person has chosen us as parents. Our baby Wildlife Warrior is going to be so very loved by our families and entire Australia Zoo team."

"I can’t wait to find out what this amazing new soul loves in life, and experience the world all over again through their eyes."

I don't know about you, but I'm so happy for Bindi and Chandler I could almost cry! I think they're going to be amazing parents.

Now's the best time to get your best guesses in on whether you think they'll have a boy or girl, and what they'll name them! I'm betting the name Steve or Stevie makes an appearance.
