They're the world's most adorable Wildlife Warriors, and now Bindi Irwin has hinted that her late father Steve would approve of boyfriend Chandler Powell.
Looking as loved up as ever, the couple appeared on the Today Show on Friday morning, with the 18-year-old saying her Crocodile Hunter dad was always the most "protective" member of the Irwin clan.
"My dad was actually the most protective though of anyone. 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 recalled as she spoke to hosts Lisa Wilkinson and Karl Stefanovic.
However, the passionate conservationist added that Chandler has easily passed Steve's requirement!
"Luckily Chandler wakeboards, he can board across the pond [with] no worries at a all," Bindi added with a laugh.
The US Dancing With The Stars winner even admitted she hopes to "spend her entire life" with her 20-year-old American beau!
Awww, young love!

However their courtship hasn't been without an initiation for Chandler, who joined the Irwin's on their annual crocodile research trip for the first time last year, where he happily jumped on his first croc.
The couple also opened up about the early stages of their relationship, revealing Chandler, who first met Bindi while on a holiday from his native United States, wrote to her mum Terri to ask permission to keep in touch.
"She came in with a letter from Chandler and she said 'I think this is for you... and is he real?'" Bindi said of their romance, which started in November 2013.
