Bindi Irwin is in her third trimester and looking forward to welcoming baby soon! But there was one photo op she didn’t want to miss during pregnancy—recreating a sweet maternity photo her parents took 17 years ago.

In the photo, Bindi’s mom, Terri Irwin, is pregnant with her little brother, Robert, now 17. She’s standing with a bare bump, while the late Steve Irwin is giving it a kiss. Bindi Irwin recreated the photo with her husband, Chandler Powell and recently posted it to her Instagram.

“Recreating a very special moment. Third trimester love,” wrote in the caption of her post of the photos.

The couple, who wed in March 2020, first announced the pregnancy in August of last year. They’ve been giving fans updates along the way and revealed they’re having a baby girl in September 2020.

“Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still,” she wrote on her Instagram at the time. “I took a test and ran into the kitchen where Chandler was making us tea. He didn’t hear me come in so I speechlessly watched him pouring the water into my most loved hedgehog mug. This news would change the course of our future in the best way. I started crying tears of pure joy and told my sweetheart husband that my test was positive.”

She continued, “It is such a blessing knowing that this tiny person has chosen us as parents. Our baby Wildlife Warrior is going to be so very loved by our families and entire Australia Zoo team. I can’t wait to find out what this amazing new soul loves in life, and experience the world all over again through their eyes.”
