The 22-year-old television personality and conservationist welcomed her first child, daughter Grace Warrior, with her husband, Chandler Powell, on Thursday.
Irwin shared the news Friday on Instagram alongside a photo of herself with Chandler and their baby girl. Irwin gave birth on her first wedding anniversary with Powell.
“March 25, 2021. Celebrating the two loves of my life,” Irwin captioned the post. “Happy first wedding anniversary to my sweetheart husband and day of birth to our beautiful daughter. Grace Warrior Irwin Powell.”
Irwin said they named their daughter after relatives, including her father, late “Crocodile Hunter” star Steve Irwin.
“Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s. Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior,” Irwin said. “Her last name is Powell and she already has a such a kind soul just like her dad.”
“There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl,” she added. “She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed.”
Irwin and Powell married in March 2020 and announced in August that they were expecting their first child.
“Baby Wildlife Warrior due 2021. Chandler and I are proud to announce that we’re expecting!” Irwin wrote on Instagram.
