Has the latest member of the Irwin family arrived?
Bindi Irwin, 22, has sent fans into overdrive with a huge hint on Instagram that she’s given birth to her daughter.
The daughter of wildlife legend Steve Irwin has regularly kept her social media followers updated throughout her pregnancy with snaps of her baby bump but she has gone quiet for almost a week.
The silence has led fans to believe the new arrival has came.
The blackout follows Bindi and husband Chandler Powell, 24, sharing identical posts to Instagram on Sunday that gave the impression that their child had entered the world.
The pair both shared a picture of them gently touching Bindi’s stomach along with the caption: “My world”.
But followers were quick to notice that it was actually a throwback image from a post a week earlier.
In an image Chandler shared on Friday, his wife was seemingly going to great lengths to hide her tummy, again prompting people to gossip about whether their daughter had been born.
In the snap, Bind’s knee and arm were tactically placed to obscure any view her belly. The caption alongside the post perhaps cryptically read: “Another day of important meetings at #AustraliaZoo.”
An earlier post by Bindi showed her stomach concealed by a red panda named Ravi.
The posts have certainly put the rumour mill in full flow. Some believe that the duo are keeping the child’s arrival under wraps so they can enjoy their first few days as parents in private.
The child will be the couple’s first baby and they announced they were having a girl in September.
At the time, Bindi shared an image to social media of her holding a sonogram.
She captioned it: “Baby girl, you are our world. Our beautiful daughter is now about the same size as a hatchling Aldabra tortoise and is as healthy as can be. We can’t wait for her arrival next year.”
