The Irwins are filled with excitement as they prepare for the birth of Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell’s daughter, documented in the all-new special CRIKEY! IT’S A BABY! which streams Sunday, April 25 on discovery+, the definitive non-fiction, real-life subscription streaming service. It’s truly an Irwin family affair in this special episode of Crikey! It’s the Irwins when Terri and Robert Irwin do all they can to help Bindi and Chandler while the family continues their wildlife conservation efforts. CRIKEY! IT’S A BABY! includes poignant and intimate moments leading up to the birth of Bindi and Chandler’s daughter, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, including their homecoming as a family to Australia Zoo.
CRIKEY! IT’S A BABY! includes Terri throwing a baby shower, compete with animals, games, and Chandler’s parents attending via zoom from the U.S.; Chandler giving Bindi an emotional surprise after she finishes her last day of work at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital; Robert proving he is worthy of his new nickname – Funcle, the funnest Uncle of all time – by using his dog Stella to demonstrate his baby caring skills; Bindi and Chandler preparing their overnight bags for their upcoming trip to the hospital; Robert providing updates from the hospital waiting room; and Bindi, Chandler and their daughter coming home to Australia Zoo where they are welcomed by the entire Australia Zoo family.
Ahead of the discovery+ special, audiences will get a sneak peek at the couple’s excitement for this new chapter in their lives, including a digital video of the moment Bindi and Chandler prepared their hospital bag for baby’s arrival. Viewers will also be able to stream the family’s journey to the birth of Grace Warrior Irwin Powell when a 10 minute first look airs on discovery+ in the coming week. In the meantime, fans can check out this photo gallery chronicling Bindi’s pregnancy from the very beginning.
Other CRIKEY! IT’S A BABY! stories include Terri undertaking an important task with another baby, Raflesia, a beautiful Sumatran Elephant, and Robert racing to save one of the biggest babies in nature, a 12-foot baby whale shark, stranded in shallow water on a nearby beach. And no Irwin life event is complete without stories of Steve Irwin, and Terri relates wonderful stories of Bindi’s arrival and the hilarious lead up with Steve losing his keys in total panic, arriving at the hospital with a complete film crew in tow, and the pure joy of meeting his new daughter for the very first time.
