Bindi Irwin has chopped off her famous long blonde locks.
The Wildlife Warrior debuted her dramatic new ‘do while celebrating her 24th birthday on Sunday with a glamorous photo shoot on the Sunshine Coast.
The images show Bindi with a shoulder-length bob posing outdoors in the bush with husband Chandler Powell, 25, and their daughter Grace, one.
Bindi’s brother Robert, 18, and their mother Terri, 58, were also at the celebration.
Bindi’s sophisticated new tresses were curled and styled in a side parting. She also swapped her famous khaki zookeeper outfit for a pair of tight blue jeans and a long plaid shirt.
In a post on Instagram, Bindi wrote: ‘The last year has been filled with enormous growth, unpredictable/challenging times and above all, love beyond my wildest dreams.
‘Without them realising, my sweet family has given me the greatest gifts this year through their extraordinary actions each and every day.’
Bindi went on to thank her relatives for how they have supported her and the valuable gifts they have given her over the past year.
‘My in-laws, the gift of no distance standing in the way of family bonds. My mum, the gift of perseverance, strength and a shoulder to lean on,’ she wrote.
‘My brother, the gift of enthusiasm for life and remembering not to sweat the little things. My husband, the gift of steadfast support and infinite kindness.’
Bindi went on to share a tribute to little Grace, who looked adorable in sunshine-print jumper and pink frilly pants.
‘My darling daughter, the gift of finding beauty in all things and running towards happiness (and bubbles, which are the same thing to her) with an open heart.’
She finished her post: ‘I’m grateful for another trip around the sun and another year to do my best making difference in this world. Thank you to everyone who is part of my journey, I’m tremendously thankful for you.’
‘My darling daughter, the gift of finding beauty in all things and running towards happiness (and bubbles, which are the same thing to her) with an open heart’
‘You are the most kind-hearted person, caring mama, loving wife and my best friend. I love you (and so does Grace).’
Bindi and Chandler married in a secret ceremony at Australia Zoo on March 25, 2020.
They welcomed Grace on March 25 last year.
Bindi’s father Steve tragically died after a stingray pierced him in the chest on September 4, 2006, while filming a documentary series in the Great Barrier Reef.
Irwin was nicknamed Australia’s Wildlife Warrior and Crocodile Hunter for his dedication to educating people on Australia’s environment.
