Bindi Irwin gushes as she reunites with boyfriend Chandler

BINDI Irwin has been reunited with American boyfriend Chandler Powell, two days into the new year.

The 18-year-old wildlife warrior and her professional wakeboarder boyfriend of two years spent Christmas apart, her at Australia Zoo in Queensland with mum Terri and brother, Robert, and Powell in the US.

"So happy to be back with beautiful @BindiSueIrwin. Can't wait for Australian school holiday excitement at Australia Zoo over the next month. Woo Hoo."

Shortly after, Irwin responded: "I missed you so much. Incredibly thankful to have you back in Australia".

Two days ago, on New Year's Eve, Powell shared a happy snap with his girlfriend with the caption: "2016 will be one I remember for the rest of my life. Thank you for making it so incredible. I can't wait to make 2017 even more memorable with you @BindiSueIrwin."

Powell shares Bindi's adventurous spirit and passion for wildlife. He is a global ambassador for Wildlife Warriors, a conservation organisation started by the late Steve Irwin.
