It’s also set to show Chandler’s emotional surprise for Bindi on her last day of work at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital and Robert Irwin preparing to become a ‘Funcle’ - fun uncle - by using his dog Stella to demonstrate his baby caring skills.

When it comes to the birth, the cameras were there to document Bindi packing her overnight back for the hospital, Robert providing updates from the hospital waiting room and Chandler and Bindi’s arrival home to Australia Zoo after Grace Warrior’s arrival.

Last Friday, Bindi took to her Instagram account to announce the arrival of her daughter.

Bindi revealed her daughter’s name - Grace Warrior Irwin Powell - is a touching tribute to her late father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.

“Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s,” Bindi explained.

“Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior.

“Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad.

“There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl. She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed.”

Grace was born on Thursday evening weighing 7lbs 7oz and measuring 20 inches.

The baby was born on Bindi and Chandler's first wedding anniversary.

On March 25th 2020, Bindi and and Chandler married in a ‘small ceremony’ at Australia Zoo after being forced to move everything forward due to the coronavirus.
