The pair, meanwhile, loves introducing each other as husband and wife -- even if they don't get to do it as much as they'd like to right now."It is so cool introducing you as my wife," Chandler told his lady love, with Bindi replying,"I love that and saying that this is my husband. We haven't really been able to say it to many people because everyone in the zoo already knows."

"No, we said it to a lot of animals," cracked Chandler.The couple had planned to tie the knot on April 4 at the family's Australia Zoo. However, the pandemic forced them tomove their special day upand make it a smaller event. Chandler's parents, who live in Florida, weren't able to be there after travel restrictions were put in place.

While all the last-minute changes would make any bride stress out, Bindi said it was thanks to her husband that she stayed so calm."Chandler has the most calming presence. He was very nice just to say, 'Everything's gonna be OK.' But it was crazy," the conservationist explained."First and foremost, we wanted to ensure that everyone's health and safety was the priority, so whatever happens in life we just wanted to be happy. We made the decision not to have any guests at our wedding to make sure everyone was safe, and it was a really tough choice to make."

Thankfully, Chandler's parents understood and"were so lovely," Bindi said. But it wasn't all easy going after they had to move the date up. As previously shown in their wedding special,Crickey! It's the Irwins: Bindi's Wedding

And I remember I was in my wedding dress and we found this beautiful, old -- it's like a barn where we filmed
