    There are invariably going to be comments about how young Bindi is. But I really have to say, she is such an impressive young woman and I really feel like she and her husband have themselves together. I think they’ll be great parents and they have what is clearly an incredible support system. I wish there were more younger “celebs” like Bindi.

    Bindi and her brother Robert’s Instagram feeds are a much-needed feel good distraction.

    Why mention the months following the wedding? Hmm. My husband and I got married on a quick 24-hour leave he was able to score while serving. A month-and-a-half later, I’m freaking out lol. Of course I got pregnant in one evening. Of course my birth control pills were in…control. 😐

    • Deedee says:

      My mom got pregnant on her honeymoon. This was in the days of party line phones (1950s). She picked up the phone and heard a gossipy neighbor say, “Hasn’t Doris had that baby yet?” when she was only 6 months along. She was LIVID!

    Twenty two might be young to be a mother in the US or U.K. but it’s a pretty typical age for many women to have children in other (developed or developing) countries.

    • Lavande says:

      Can’t speak for everywhere but.. Not France. Not Canada. Not taiwan Korea or Japan. Not Morocco. She’a Australian right? Which countries are you thinking of?
      Side note Wow her hair. What a gorgeous colour and looks so silky and thick

    • Ange says:

      She’s Australian which is a pretty developed country I would say lol. The average age for women getting married and having kids is around 30 here so yes, she’s starting young.

    • Ines says:

      I mean, yes, she’s young, but it’s not unheard of.

  4. Tiffany says:

    Her husband looks a lot like her brother, who looks a lot like their late father.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      I was struck by how much she and her husband look alike. Same eyes exactly, same smile, same nose. They look like brother and sister.

  5. Sid says:

    She seems like such a lovely young lady. Best wishes to her and her growing family.

  6. ME says:

    Congrats to them. It’s sad how much her dad is missing. That aside, I honestly didn’t think too many people would want to get pregnant during a pandemic. We don’t know how long this thing is going to last…but that’s their choice. It will be difficult and a lot more challenging being pregnant and trying not to catch Covid-19. I personally don’t want to even think about bringing a child into this garbage world. What is so great about it? So much suffering, so much corruption. No thanks. But hey, that’s just me. These two seem very mature and responsible. Once again, too bad her dad isn’t here to experience all the joy and good news with them.

    • Jen says:

      I got pregnant during the pandemic and just lost my baby on Sunday. I was 12 weeks. This comment stings. This baby was very much wanted and planned. I don’t want my daughter to be an only child and who knows how long this pandemic will last. It’s something we’re all going to have to learn to live with. Please think carefully before posting a comment like that.

    • Eleonor says:

      I have made the choice to not have children, but I have the utmost respect for those who have them.

      • ME says:

        People should do what is right for them. I don’t make decisions for others and others don’t make decisions for me. To each their own.

    • Jen says:

      Fair enough, It’s still very recent so I’m still quite emotional. I may have gotten a tad touchy with the comment purely because I read it wrong and thought you said you didn’t know why people would want to get pregnant. Like I said, emotional lady at the minute 😢.

      • ME says:

        I’m glad you decided to re-read my comment. I really truly am sorry for your loss. We all get emotional sometimes. Knowing my comment stung you really bothered me and I was starting to really feel bad about it…but I am glad you re-read it. I was not at all trying to tell other women what to do. It is a personal choice. Best of luck to you.

      • Nikki* says:

        Jen, I am extremely sorry for your recent loss, especially when it was just at the end of the first trimester, when people usually start to feel more confident. I got pregnant and delivered a healthy baby soon after a very sad miscarriage, and my sister had a miscarriage before each one of her four healthy children were born. When her daughter learned about this, she exclaimed “So we EACH have a little guardian angel looking out for us?!” which stunned us all and put a different spin on my sister’s ordeal of loss. Very best wishes to you in the future, and try to baby yourself and be gentle with yourself as much as you possibly can. <3

    • Léna says:

      I completely agree with you

    • Case says:

      ME, nothing you said here was rude or disrespectful. As you said, to each their own. I agree that, for me personally, it would be a scary time to have a baby. There’s so much uncertainty in the world and I’m anxious enough just about me and my currently existing family members to think about bringing a baby into the mix. I’ve read that your theory is pretty much correct, too — no one is expecting a baby boom to come from this time. Quite the opposite.

      That said, I can see how this is a great time for celebrities to have children. I’m sure many actors and musicians worry about how pregnancy/maternity/paternity leave would impact their momentum in their careers. This is a good time for them to quietly enjoy it without anyone even knowing.

      • ME says:

        Thank you !

      • K says:

        I agree that having kids is challenging at the best of times and a tricky situation in this world as crazy as it currently is (speaking from an American perspective). I was just talking to one of the two women in my life whom I love and respect that became pregnant right before this pandemic, and whom I don’t envy because we all have plenty on our plates. I’m childless by choice and feel relief not having to wrestle with concerns about finding childcare or education for them, kids interrupting work, or worrying about a child’s wellbeing on top of my own struggles.

        It’s not my problem, but I feel for those parents or those who would like to be parents having to navigate these unknowns. We’re all in the dark about the future, and kids add both joy and difficulty to any given scenario. I wish I could send a gift of energy to a mom-to-be like Bindi.

    • Jen says:

      I always own up to things if I get something wrong. My own fault for even reading this post. I should have just avoided it altogether. I don’t even really know why I read it 😞.

      • Nikki* says:

        Jen, please read my comment above! <3

      • Jen says:

        Nikki*

        Thank you for your kind words. They honestly made me cry. I had never thought of it that way. I had a previous miscarriage before my first daughter was born, so you are right she has a guardian angel. Hopefully this baby will be a guardian angel to my future children (if I’m lucky enough to have more). I really needed to hear this today ❤️

    • LWT00 says:

      Eh. I’m 20 weeks pregnant now, meaning we conceived in early April. We talked about delaying for Covid, but honestly there’s no telling how long we’re going to be dealing with it. Should we wait a year? Two? Five?

      As far as the risks, it’s not that much harder avoiding getting Covid while pregnant than when not pregnant. I’d still be distancing and wearing a mask if I wasn’t pregnant. And with regards to the corruption… when has there ever been an earlier time in history with less risk or less corruption? People have had children for eons in much worse conditions. It’s how the species survives.

      • Taylor says:

        Yep, right there with you- I’m 17 weeks. We didn’t imagine in our wildest dreams that covid would be spiraling as it is right now, but at the end of the day, I’m 31 and my partner is 42. Every year really counts right now, we don’t necessarily have the benefit of time on our sides. And totally agree, there will always be some shit that comes up to deter your plans- it’s kind of a grass is greener thing. Hope you are feeling well!

    • Ange says:

      in Queensland where the zoo is situated and where I imagine Bindi spends most of her time there aren’t even any active cases of covid right now.

  7. Case says:

    This is happy news. I wish them the best! Totally agree with those saying she appears to be a very mature and level-headed person and I have no doubt she’s as ready as anyone is to have a baby, despite her young age.

    And yes, Sunset Boulevard IS a great movie. One of the movies that got me interested in studying film as a hobby.

  8. Stacy Dresden says:

    Yea Bindi! How sweet

  9. Marlowe17 says:

    It seems right for them, and looking forward to seeing a photo of their little angel several months from now.

  10. Sonishka says:

    Congratulations to Bindi! I think she is more mature and has experienced so many things in her life that many ppl havent or wont. so she is not the regular 22 year old still figuring her life having a baby. Hell if i met the right person at 22 i d have the baby but i wanted to travel and took me forever to meet a guy that i wanted to have the baby with. I had a baby at 35 with her father leaving us 4 months later and trust me, there were so many times when i felt like a 15\20 year old falling for the wrong guy. You just cant know :-(

  11. Genessee says:

    Man, the girl got on the baby train quick. You go Bindi. LOL

    Omg!!! Kamala Harris!!! 🙌🙌🙌

  14. Jules says:

    I”m here for the giraffe.

    • Betsy says:

      It’s such a weird picture. Not that there’s a giraffe there, just that her arm is jutting out giving the giraffe a little treat but she’s not otherwise interacting with it…. it’s funny weird though, not like ohmygod weird.

  15. bettyrose says:

    KAMALA!!!!! I’m crying, laughing, dancing around my house . . .and I have a meeting in 18 minutes.

  16. Cate says:

    How lovely is Bindi? So happy for her.

    I am really sorry for your loss Jen (((hugs)))

  17. Redgrl says:

    Re Bindi Irwin – good for her. But I have to say – I hate when people end messages with things like “love and light” – cheesetacular!

  18. SolitaryAngel says:

    I have such a huge soft spot for Bindi and regularly watch her videos from DWTS. I am so happy for her, she’s a very mature young lady and I wish her all the happiness she deserves in life.

    Jen, I’m so sorry for your loss. I, too lost a baby daughter before my son was born and unfortunately found out out I had cancer soon after so he’s the only child I was able to have. I wish you all the best. ❤
