“July 24th 2019 ❤️ On my birthday I said ‘yes’ and ‘forever’ to the love of my life,” Bindi wrote. “Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness. I’m so looking forwarding to spending our forever together as your wife. Here’s to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love. — Now let’s get married already!”

Chandler also took to Instagram to share his excitement of their engagement.

“She said YES! ❤️💍,” Chandler wrote.  “Almost 6 years ago we met at Australia Zoo. I immediately fell head over heels for her kind and thoughtful heart that radiates so much light. Proposing in her very favorite place in the zoo, surrounded by animals, seemed like the perfect way to embark on this incredible new chapter in our lives.”

He concluded by sharing his love for Bindi. “Bee, I love you more than anything in this world and I always will. Happy Birthday.”
