We couldn’t wait to share the news as this beautiful little being has become the most important part of our lives,” Bindi said in her pregnancy announcement post.

Now, just a little under a month after publicly revealing her pregnancy, Bindi has spoken about the day she learned she was expecting.

Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still,” Bindi wrote in a post on Instagram. The post accompanied a photo of her and Chandler petting their puppy, Piggy.

Bindi said Chandler was in the kitchen making tea when she went to the bathroom to take a pregnancy test. When she saw it was positive, she rushed to the kitchen to tell Chandler the happy news:

He didn’t hear me come in so I speechlessly watched him pouring the water into my most loved hedgehog mug,” Bindi remembers. “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.”

After that, Bindi says she and Chandler sat down with their tea and talked about what the future has in store for them and their child. 

In that short span of time the gorgeous baby I’m carrying became the most important part of our lives,” she said.

Bindi went on to describe how she’s looking forward to seeing what her child will be like, saying, “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.”

Reflecting on when we found out that we are going to be parents. ❤️ Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still. 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. We were beaming while our adorable puppy Piggy sat on our feet wondering what was going on. It reminded me of just how perceptive animals are. We sat together with tea talking about the future and how we were going to share such wonderful, life changing news with the people that we love. In that short span of time the gorgeous baby I'm carrying became the most important part of our lives.  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.
