They have been dating since 2013.

Irwin posted on social media about the great news.

“On my birthday I said ‘yes’ & ‘forever’ to the love of my life,” Irwin tweeted along with photos of her, Powell and her engagement ring.

“I love you more than anything in this world and I always will. Forever together sounds perfect.”
He went to the zoo in Australia for a wakeboarding competition.
“It just so happened that Bindi was giving tours that day,” Powell said. “I’m like, ‘Wow she is amazing.'”
