"Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021," the Australian conversationalist captioned her Instagram post on Tuesday. "Chandler and I are proud to announce that we're expecting! It's an honour to share this special moment in our lives with you."

"Though I'm still in my first trimester, we really want you to be part of our journey from the beginning of this new life chapter. We couldn't wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives," Irwin continued.

Irwin emphasized that support from her fans "means the world" to the couple and ended her announcement by asking people to share advice for the parents-to-be.

"I cannot wait to embark on this new adventure and life chapter with my gorgeous wife," Powell wrote. "Bee, you're going to be the most amazing mother."
