Aww, little Bindi Irwin is all grown up. And she’s celebrating her latest good news as the first contestant to be announced in the upcoming 21st season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars! Bindi joked in a retweet today from an interview with Good Morning America, “I’m more afraid of the judges than I am of Crocs!”
Daughter of the late Steve Irwin, best known as television’s Crocodile Hunter, Bindi is no stranger to the spotlight. After Steve tragically died from a stingray barb in 2006, Bindi (then only 8-years old) delivered a heartfelt public eulogy to a TV audience of more than 300 million viewers, going on in later years to star in My Daddy the Crocodile Hunter as well as various fitness and music DVDs.

Bindi tells PEOPLE that she’s “absolutely thrilled” to be a part of the new season of DWTS, adding, “I think that it is going to be a truly unbelievable new experience. I can’t wait to see what is to come.”
In a recent interview with Fox News, Bindi shared her ongoing love and admiration for her father, citing, “Dad is and always will be my living, breathing superhero.” She also revealed that she’s currently got “someone special” in her life, 18-year-old professional wakeboarder Chandler Powell. “Life is wonderful at the moment,” shared Bindi.
As the first to be announced this season, Bindi must be flying pretty high right now. No news on other contestants for DWTS season 21 yet, but I’m betting more news will be coming our way very soon!
