Every mother’s nightmare? Bindi Irwin may be a wild life warrior, but the 22-year-old daughter of the late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin doesn’t exactly agree with the surprise theme of her baby’s nursery.
On Thursday morning, a sneak peek of Bindi and her husband, Chandler Powell, the upcoming Discovery + special, Crikey! It’s a baby!, broadcast on Good morning america.
In the sweet clip, the couple introduce their newborn baby girl to the staff at the Australia Zoo, where they both work.
Bindi’s younger brother Robert Irwin also surprises her with a very scary dinosaur-themed nursery that features a huge Tyrannosaurus rex replica, holding the crib mobile between his teeth.
The speechless Bindi looks shocked and concerned when she first sees the nursery and “Bruce the dinosaur”, saying, “That gave me the biggest heart attack of my life!”
Robert seems to think that his sister agrees with the Jurassic-themed nursery.
“Bindi’s initial reaction is pretty good,” he says in the clip. “She can’t even articulate how much she loves him.”
Chandler assures his then pregnant wife: “Yes [our daughter] grows up with Bruce, he will not be afraid of anything. ”
It’s unclear if the family is keeping the nursery as is, although Bindi shared an animal-themed nursery wall on Instagram in January, which looked vastly different than Robert and Chandler’s creation.
New parents are currently spending time with their little girl, even if their hands are literally full! On Wednesday, the proud father shared a sweet photo with his wife of one year and their newborn daughter, Grace Warrior, as well as their dog, Piggy.
“Family photo,” Chandler captioned the sweet photo with a heart emoji.
Crikey! It’s a baby! airs Sunday on Discovery +.
