On Saturday’s Today Extra, Bindi Irwin revealed the conditions late father Steve, put in place should Chandler Powell, 20, want to date her.

Channel Nine’s David Campbell quizzed Bindi on whether her comments made earlier on the Today Show were true, regarding the late Steve Irwin’s conditions for someone to date her.

Bindi was referring to her statement made earlier on the program a day prior while at Australia Zoo: ‘My dad was the most protective of anyone,’ she told presenters Karl Stefanovic and Lisa Wilkinson.

‘He always said, “Before Bindi is allowed to date, the guy has to cross our toughest crocodile pond”, so he has to swim across the pond,’ Bindi explained.

Even Bindi’s mum seemed taken aback by the gesture too, with Bindi claiming: ‘She came in with the letter from Chandler and said ”I think this is for you and is he real?”‘.

‘We’re coming up on four years now,’ Bindi said.
