Bindi Irwin Says That She Won't Be Changing Her Name Despite Recent Marriage
Near the ending of March, Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, got married to Chandler Powell, her lover of many years. Unfortunately, there were no guests on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the event was still exciting for both of them.
In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Bindi Irwin - whose father tragically died in 2006 - explained why she still hasn't changed her last name to Powell. According to Bindi, she won't be doing so either. Bindi explained to the aforementioned outlet that she doesn't plan on changing it as a tribute to Steve.
Sharing Steve's last name means so much to her, Bindi explained, so much to the point that it's practically inconceivable for her to change it. It's the last thing she has to remind her of her father. Powell, 23, said he might even be the one to change his name instead.
Irwin went on to say to the publication that it's "2020 now," so anybody can do anything. There aren't as many limitations to how one can go about their life. On Saturday, the TV personality took to her IG to explain what it was like to get married, which occurred on the 25th of March.

As fans of the Australian television personality know, Steve died after he was stung in the chest by a stingray in Australia's Great Barrier Reef when he was 44-years-old.
These days, Bindi has continued working in television and entertainment, and she's gearing up to star in the Animal Planet special, Crikey! It's the Irwins: Life in Lockdown, alongside her mother, Terri, and Robert, her brother.
As it was noted above, Steve died at the beginning of September in 2006. His death sent shockwaves around the world and he has since been honored in a number of ways, including by governments, media outlets, and he even had an asteroid named after him.
