Bindi Irwin wed her long-time partner Chandler Powell during a secret ceremony at Australia Zoo on March 25. 

And on Sunday, Bindi revealed that she celebrated her honeymoon at the sprawling premises amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to Us Weekly, the Australian wildlife advocate said: ‘Our honeymoon certainly wasn’t what we had originally planned.’

Instead, Bindi, 21, and Chandler, 23, were forced to cancel their honeymoon to help with Australia Zoo’s $400,000 weekly payroll crisis.

‘We spent our honeymoon doing our best to care for our animals and zoo team hoping that things would get brighter,’ she told the publication.

‘Our first few months of marriage have been a whirlwind to say the least,’ Bindi added.

Bindi went on to say that she couldn’t think of a better time to get married then when she did. 

Telling the publication, ‘it feels so much better’ to tackle the world together as husband and wife.

The newlyweds were forced to cancel their honeymoon in March as the coronavirus pandemic threatened their family financially.

One day after their wedding, the family held crisis talks to discuss how to keep their business, Australia Zoo, afloat, on ‘skeleton staffing’.

In an Animal Planet special set to air in August, titled Crikey! It’s the Irwins: Life in Lockdown, the couple will discuss how they addressed the zoo’s payroll problem. 

Crikey! It’s the Irwins: Life in Lockdown will air on Foxtel’s Animal Planet on Saturday, August 1 from 7:30pm
