“Dancing With the Stars” (DWTS) contestant Bindi Irwin gushed about her longtime boyfriend and pro wakeboarder Chandler Powell as they celebrated his 19th birthday on Saturday.

Irwin uploaded a black-and-white photo with her boyfriend via Instagram captioned, “Happy birthday to a person who inspires me every day. A soul who makes me smile no matter where I am in the world, despite any amount of distance.”

The Australian conservationist continued, “Thank you for the endless hugs, late night conversations about life, holding my hand when a loud noise scares me and laughing along with all of my bindi moments. I’m blessed to be part of your world.”

The 17-year-old star has been away with her boyfriend for sometime due to her commitment with “DWTS.” Irwin has been on the spotlight of the competition with her professional partner Derek Hough.

Earlier this month, Irwin told People that she has relied a lot on her boyfriend since joining “DWTS.” The star recalled that her boyfriend Powell never cared about her losing toenails nor seeing her injured feet.

Back in September, Powell was present in the “DWTS” audience to support his beloved. At the backstage, Irwin told Entertainment Tonight that she was happy to see her boyfriend at the show alongside her family.

“It’s really nice to have that support. I have my family, my mom and brother here with me, and then to have Chandler here as well,” she said.

The “DWTS” contestant also shared how her boyfriend treats her after the show.

“It’s really funny because every night I’ll come home and he’ll be like, let’s get the ice, let’s get a cup of tea and let’s get you food. It’s kind of a checklist. I think that love and support is just something we all need in life. We need those people to keep us going,” she added.

Irwin has been very open about her relationship with Powell and was never shy to show her love for him on social media.

The “Bindi’s Bootcamp” star is the daughter of Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin and American-Australian naturalist Terri Irwin. She has an 11-year-old brother named Robert Clarence Irwin.
