Bindi Irwin's 21st birthday was special for more than one reason. Not only did she celebrate the milestone - she also got engaged to her now fiance Chandler Powell!

The wildlife warrior made the announcement on her Twitter and even shared some personal photos of the pair.

"On my birthday I said ‘yes’ & ‘forever’ to the love of my life." she began.

"Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you & every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure & true happiness. Here’s to a lifetime of friendship, purpose & unconditional love."

Those close to the couple were quick to share their congratulations.

Bindi's brother Robert wrote "I am beyond happy for you two. You are true soulmates and have always been so completely perfect for each other. Love you both and congratulations!"

"THEY’RE ENGAGED! Crikey!" the team at Australia Zoo wrote online.

"Congratulations to our beautiful Bindi & Chandler. They first met right here at Australia Zoo while Bindi was holding one of our gorgeous echidnas. Today, their love has bloomed & they are an extraordinary Wildlife Warriors team."

We're so excited for the happy couple!
