Bindi Irwin Reveals Why She Loves 'Sweet' Boyfriend Chandler Powell

The "Dancing With the Stars" champion revealed what her mother thinks of Powell.

“My mum has always described him as an old-fashioned gentleman,” Irwin said. “He’s always there to keep me going. He’s a sweet, sweet person."

Irwin, 17, has briefly commented about her relationship with Powell in the past, revealing she was seeing "someone special" in July, and making their first red carpet appearance together in September.

Irwin, daughter of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, also explained she fell in love with Powell because of his acceptance and understanding of her life in the spotlight.

“He’s the first person I’ve met who understands my life: the travel and the work and that real dedication and determination," Irwin said. "I think that’s why I love him so much, because he gets my world.”
