Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell were spotted smooching on a beach in Hawaii, but Dancing With the Stars fans needn’t worry. The season 21 mirror ball winner isn’t vacationing solo with her boyfriend. Instead the trip includes chaperones Terri Irwin and little brother Robert. Chandler Powell’s brother is with the gang in Hawaii, too.

It doesn’t seem like Bindi Irwin minds having her mom and brother along, however. In fact, she posted a video clip to Instagram of the fun they’re all having together.
“When your little brother and your boyfriend decide that Adele is always a good idea. In the back of a convertible. In Hawaii. Also, thanks to Chandler’s older brother for driving and laughing along with me on this… #LittleBrothers #CouldntResistPosting sorry @chandlerpowell but you and Robert honestly bring me so much joy! I think I laughed for a good 20 minutes at this one,” Bindi captioned her post.
Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell have been dating since 2013, and even though she lives in Australia–and is just 17–and the 19-year-old lives in the U.S., they have done a fabulous job of making their romance work. Chandler was on hand frequently to support Bindi during her time on Dancing With the Stars.

It helps that Bindi Irwin’s family is incredibly fond of the pro wakeboarder, too. He has visited them in Australia a number of times.
Bindi won even more hearts than she already had as the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, when she appeared on Dancing With the Stars.
Hopefully Chandler Powell continues to treat Bindi Irwin like a lady. All those who love her are also likely looking out for her well-being, too.
