Terri Irwin says Steve would be happy with Bindi's boyfriend

BINDI Irwin has gushed about boyfriend Chandler Powell in an interview with E! News.

The 17-year-old spoke about her relationship with the professional wakeboarder and why he is the "best boyfriend".

"Chandler is still with me, and we've been together quite a few years now, and I'm lucky."

The pair first met in November 2013.

When asked what her late father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin would think of the pair, Bindi's mum Terri Iwrin said he would be "very happy".

"I think because Chandler's a nice person and really kind to Bindi that he'd be very happy," Terri said.
