In late March, Bindi Irwin tied the knot with Chandler Powell, her longtime love, in an intimate ceremony with no guests due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Two months later, the 21-year-old, whose famous father, Steve Irwin, died in 2006, hasn´t changed her last name, and in a recent interview, she explained why.

"I’ve kept Bindi Irwin," she told Entertainment Tonight. "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."

Powell, 23, added to the outlet that his new wife considered a name change but is "an Irwin through and through." In fact, he may even be the one changing his name.

"Chandler has become an Irwin now," Irwin laughed, per ET. "It has become a part of me. Everyone has their own ideas, but the nice thing is that it´s 2020 now. Anything works!"

On Saturday, the Australian TV personality revealed on Instagram the backstory behind her wedding, which took place on March 25 at the Australia Zoo gardens.
