He posted a selfie of himself and Bindi sitting in a hospital bed and wrote in the caption: ‘Just wanted to write a note to my amazing wife. I had to remove my tonsils and he has taken the best care of me.

‘I’m so lucky to be loved by you, [Bindi]. Also, thank you Bunny (my wonderful mother-in-law) for taking care of Grace while we were in the hospital and I have recovered.’

The beloved Aussie duo hinted at the nickname early last year during an interview with The Bump.

They revealed ‘Bunny’ was inspired by Terri’s childhood neighbor, 58, in Oregon who has the same cute name.

“We spent a long time looking for a grandmother’s name that also has animal links,” Bindi said on the pregnancy website.

Meanwhile, Bindi’s brother Robert Irwin, who turned 18 in December, has dubbed himself the ‘fun uncle’ or ‘funcle’.

It came during a difficult few weeks for the Irwin family.

He said: 'I am so lucky to be loved by you, [Bindi].  Also, thank you Bunny (my wonderful mother-in-law) for taking care of Grace while we were in the hospital and I have recovered.'

Last week, Bindi revealed the 38-year-old family echidna had died.

‘Saying goodbye to our lovely family members for 38 years,’ Bindi wrote alongside the pet’s photo gallery.

‘The sweetest, kindest, most beautiful echidna you will ever meet.’

He added alongside a love heart emoji: ‘Rest In Peace, angel.’

Bindi and Chandler married in 2020 with their daughter Grace Warrior Irwin Powell born the following year.
