Bindi's heartbreak as Chandler leaves

Alicia Vrajlal

Bindi Irwin has poured her heart out, expressing her sorrow of parting ways with boyfriend Chandler Powell.

Taking to Instagram on Friday, the 18-year-old daughter of late Crocodile Hunter star Steve, shared a photo of the cute couple, along with a sweet message dedicated to her 20-year-old beau.

"You are flying back to the USA today. Dropping you off at the airport & waving goodbye, it never gets easier," she began her caption.

"Thank you for the most wonderful adventures these last few months. We even got to celebrate your 20th birthday here in Australia together, hiking through the Great Dividing Range!"

The couple have been spending time Down Under as of late, and were together to celebrate Bindi's 18th birthday at Queensland's Australia Zoo in July.

But now it's time for the couple to briefly part ways as Chandler heads back to his hometown in the US, and saying goodbye is evidently harder for Bindi than she thought it would be.

"I've known you since you were 16 and every day, from the very first day I met you, you've been my sunshine. I will see you again soon!" she then wrote in her Instagram post.

"Thank you for everything, you always make me smile, no matter how far apart we may be. Have fun while you're away, go find lots of manatees in Florida for me! I miss you so much already. You really do mean the world to me. @chandlerpowell".

There's no doubt the pair are a true match made in heaven, with Chandler sharing a very similar sentiment on his social media page.

It seems leaving his lady love behind is a challenge for the wakeboarding enthusiast too, as he wrote on Instagram: "It seems like just yesterday I arrived in Australia for your birthday. Each good bye gets more and more difficult".

"I always carry even the smallest of moments, like these sunset walks through the zoo, with me no matter where I go. Counting down the days until I'm back with you again creating more incredible, unforgettable memories. Thank you for making me so happy each and every day."

The pair's gushing display on social media comes after Bindi denied last month that the pair were set to wed.

Chatting to Richard Wilkins and Sonia Kruger on Today Extra, the teenager assured the hosts there wasn’t any truth to rumours of an engagement to her beau.

“I'm very lucky. I have a wonderful boyfriend. I'm so glad that Chandler is here in Australia to celebrate his 20th birthday,” she said, referring to her brother Robert's birthday.

She continued: “We're just enjoying our time together. No wedding bells just yet.

“We’re having fun together and enjoying the time here in Australia because he's originally from Florida. We're slowly adapting here to Australia Zoo and getting him in with the all the animals. We're having a lot of fun. So it works out, but no marriage just yet. I'm 18. I'm happy.”

Days earlier she was also forced to hit back at claims she was starting a family with her boyfriend of two years.

The pair have been together for over two years. Source: Instagram.
