Sweet Bindi Sue Irwin, daughter of the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin is growing up. We have seen her since she was an infant, and since her father’s untimely death in 2006, she has carried on his work as a wildlife conservationist. But now we are seeing the normal fifteen year old teenager with her first boyfriend!
He is Bailey “Bazz” Lancaster. It appears that they have been dating since September, and have both been tweeting and commenting on instagram about it. Bazz is a schoolboy from Queensland. He loves to skateboard and plays hockey. On September 28 he replied to admirers commenting on a photo of Bindi with his own comment: ‘Mine. Back off boys. Getting pretty jelly’ – indicating that he was jealous. Two days later he got more emphatic with his warning: ‘Also back off boys she’s #mine When a follower asked if the pair were dating or just friends, he let it be known how he feels with: ‘You betcha buddy. Dating it up date style.’
One day later, he deleted his instagram account, but it was too late as gossip magazines were quick to begin proclaiming that they were an item. A magazine also reported that Bindi’s mother Terri and Bazz’s father Steve joined the young couple on an outing to Noosa in October. They have also attended a recent Taylor Swift concert in Brisbane.
We are happy to see this teen activist out there having fun. It can be pretty hard to do so when you’re so much in the spotlight.
