Bindi Irwin had an extra supporter in the crowd this week as she competes on Dancing With the Stars. The 17-year-old Australian shared a sweet snapshot of her and her boyfriend Chandler Powell, stating, “He’s here. Thank you for always making me laugh, helping me to ice my foot when it hurts, making me tea and hugging me when I’m tired. You’re amazing.”
Powell, 18, competes as a professional wakeboarder and reportedly flew to Los Angeles to cheer his girlfriend on as she competes for the mirror ball trophy with dancing pro Derek Hough.
