Crikey! Bindi Irwin & Boyfriend Make Red Carpet Debut as a Couple

By Johnny Lopez


She's growing up so fast!

After showing off her fancy footwork on Dancing with the Stars, Australian teen media darling Bindi Irwin took center stage as she made her first public appearance with her boyfriend of three months, Chandler Powell.

Still sporting her mandatory bronze spray tan, the 17-year-old conservationist was all smiles posing alongside the wakeboarder at a media event for the ABC series on Monday.

Bindi first revealed she and the 18-year-old athlete were an item in July and they have been sharing photos together on social media ever since. #younglove



Despite being completely infatuated with each other, the teenager isn't let her new relationship distract her from her intense DWTS schedule.

While she injured her foot recently, Irwin and partner Derek Hough managed to still score 8s across the board while performing to The Jeffersons theme this week.

Her mother and 11-year-old brother were also in the audience lending support to the teen phenom.

Bindi was just eight years old when her father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, died after being stung by a poisonous stingray in 2006.
