Bindi Irwin Says She's Keeping Her Maiden Name to Honor Late Dad

Bindi Irwin says she's keeping her maiden name as a way to honor her late dad, Steve Irwin.

The 21-year-old television personality and conservationist explained her decision to keep her last name in an interview with Entertainment Tonight following her wedding to Chandler Powell.

"I've kept Bindi Irwin," Irwin said. "I think that for me personally, after dad passed away it was really important for me to feel close to him, and having his last name means so much to me."

"Chandler has become an Irwin now," she added. "It has become a part of me. Everyone has their own ideas, but the nice thing is that it's 2020 now, anything works!"
