Rumours suggesting the daughter of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin secretly wed her boyfriend Chandler Powell have been bouncing around the Internet in recent weeks and now the teenager, who celebrated her 18th birthday on Sunday (24Jul16), has dismissed the gossip, insisting marriage is not a top priority for her right now.

"I don't think I'm at a point in my life where marriage and getting engaged is really a huge priority right now for me," she told Entertainment Tonight. "Maybe in five years, but right now I'm really happy with where I'm at."

Bindi met Chandler, a professional wakeboarder, in November, 2013, while he was visiting the Australia Zoo.

"I'm really happy with our relationship and I think we'll just continue to have fun," Irwin added. "It's just nice to have someone there no matter what.

"It's nice when you find somebody who's just endlessly kind and understands you and is really like-minded... I'm really blessed and grateful to have him in my life."
