As People notes, Irwin and Powell, 22, 2013 in Australia, began attending a professional wakeboarding competition. He visited the Australia Zoo, where the Irwin family lives and works. Since then, Powell has grown to share their affinity for animals. She told the store earlier that she was thrilled to find someone to share the love of her deceased father for "wildlife and conservation," and that he has that strength.

Bindi had previously relied on social media to share some loving thoughts about her father, who was killed by a stingray in 2006 at the age of 44.
