Bindi Irwin has shown off her growing baby bump for the first time.

Taking to Instagram, she shared a photo her mother Terri Irwin took of her standing side-on, cradling her pregnant belly.

"My beautiful mum took this photo yesterday," Bindi wrote alongside the snap. "Baby girl is doing great. Every time we get an ultrasound she’s incredibly energetic and always moving around. She’s now about the same size as a mountain pygmy-possum. Too cute!"

The daughter of late Crocodile Hunter star Steve Irwin is expecting her first child with her husband Chandler Powell, 23, who commented on the photo, writing: "She’s already growing up so fast and she hasn’t even arrived yet. I love you and our baby girl."

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old conservationist says she is "enjoying every element" of her pregnancy.

An insider told Us Weekly magazine: "They’re enjoying every element of the pregnancy and feel beyond blessed to have so much support and love from their family, friends, and fans.

"Bindi decided right from the get-go it would be great to share her entire pregnancy journey on social media, and Chandler’s been taking photos and helping her with the posts – as has her brother, Robert, and mom Terri."

The source also claims Bindi and Chandler have been "mapping out their future, reading up on parenthood and generally having the time of their lives," whilst they await their baby’s arrival.

Bindi also recently revealed she and her spouse will be having a baby girl.

The beauty shared a photo of herself and Chandler with a sonogram photo and a giant tortoise surrounded by flowers and wrote on Instagram: "Baby girl, you are our world. [heart emoji]

"Our beautiful daughter is now about the same size as a hatchling Aldabra tortoise and is as healthy as can be. We can't wait for her arrival next year.(sic)"
And Chandler shared his excitement on his own Instagram account.

He wrote: "Our little girl and my beautiful wife are my entire world. I'm so excited to meet our daughter when she's born next year and to see the incredible person she will grow up to be [heart emoji]."

Bindi and Chandler tied the knot earlier this year in a scaled-back ceremony at their home in Australia Zoo, which was altered to follow social distancing guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
