Bindi Irwin has revealed the gender of her baby in the most adorable - and fitting - Instagram post.

The 22-year-old Wildlife Warrior daughter of the late Steve Irwin shared a snapshot alongside a giant tortoise and her husband, who was holding a sonogram of their unborn child, who is… a girl!

She captioned it: "Baby girl, you are our world. 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."

Chandler, 23, also shared the photograph and 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."

Their fans went wild for the news and offered heartfelt congratulations and shared their excitement too.

The couple got married in March this year at Queensland's Australia Zoo, where they work and live, and managed to squeeze in their ceremony before COVID-19 lockdown restrictions were put in place in the country.
