Robert Irwin, the son of the late Steve Irwin, is officially an uncle!

Robert’s sister, Bindi, and her husband, Chandler, welcomed their first child together on March 25. Grace Warrior Irwin Powell was born on the couple’s first wedding anniversary, and her name is a tribute to several family members, including late father, Steve.

“Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s,” Bindi explained on Instagram. “Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior. Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad.”
