The private moment was caught on camera for their TV show, Crikey! It’s the Irwins, and a small snippet was shared on the morning breakfast program.
‘We were all out in the bush and had been jumping on crocs and attaching trackers all day. We were all sitting around the campfire and she[Bindi] just says “by the way…”‘ Terri recalled.
‘We all picked names and laughed and cried and it has been so special and she is due next month,’ the proud mother added.

During the segment, Terri said Bindi was doing well during her pregnancy and had now reached the ‘sweet spot’ of not being able to see her toes.
Robert said his big sister was ‘massive’, but after a swift elbow by his mother he clarified with a chuckle: ‘in a good way!’
In the clip from their TV show, Bindi chokes back tears as she holds up a baby-sized khaki onesie while her mother and brother sit by a campfire.
The wildlife conversationalist had told husband Chandler the exciting news earlier while he was making a cup of tea.
