Chandler Powell was born on November 14, 1996, in Florida in the United States. He moved to Orlando, attended the University of Central Florida and majored in Marketing. Powell won the Triple crown title in 2014 during his time as a professional wakeboarder. He is the husband of Bindi Irwin, Steve Irwin’s daughter and she is a conservationist, zookeeper, and actress.

While on a trip to the Australia Zoo with his family in 2013, Powell met Irwin for the first time, even documenting it on Instagram. Two years later, in 2015, Powell and Irwin started dating and they were seen on the red carpet at “Dancing With the Stars” events as Irwin was a contestant at the time. In 2017, Powell attended the Irwin family’s annual crocodile research trip and he became versed in the ways of animal conservation which sparked a new-found passion within him. In 2018, the late Steve Irwin was honored with a star on the “Hollywood Walk of Fame” in Los Angeles, an event attended by both Powell and Irwin as a couple. That same year, Powell decided to move to Australia to be with Bindi Irwin, quitting his athletic career and learning more about wildlife conservation. Powell proposed to her a year later in 2019. The couple were married in 2020 and had their daughter a year later in 2021.

The couple is considering moving to the United States in the near future to, no doubt, continue their wildlife conservation efforts.
