The 15-year-old daughter of late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin and his wife, Terri Irwin, has reportedly started dating her first boyfriend, Queensland schoolboy Bailey "Bazz" Lancaster.
Based on several ooey-gooey Instagram posts and a couple candy heart-style exchanges, it appears that there is indeed a budding new romance on the horizon for the adorable blonde.
Fans of the wildlife warrior, who works at The Australia Zoo in between school, caught their first glimpse of her main squeeze when she posted a photo of herself with Bazz, a gal pal, and a wombat three months ago. She captioned it, "Two of the most wonderful people I know and amazing friends. @AustraliaZoo cuddling our wombat!"
In the comments section of the photo, Bazz posted under an alias and kidded, "Bazz here. Thanks for friendzoning me. Love you too hahahahaha."
Bindi batted back, "Bazz. You are in my very, very close friend zone. @bazzlancaster."
The cute duo have continued their flirtatious banter on Instagram and have also cuddled up to a couple members of Bindi's inner circle – like a tiger cub! The adorable Aussie posted a snap with Bazz, a pal, and a little tiger cub last month and captioned it, "Three of my best friends. One just happens to be a tiger."

From the looks of it, Bazz is fitting right in with Bindi's wild life and was affectionately petting the little tiger cub. However, according to several Instagram comments, one thing Bazz hasn't gotten used to is her 46,000 Instagram admirers.
On Sept. 28, he wrote underneath a photo of beautiful Bindi: "Mine. Back off boys. Getting pretty jelly" (jealous).
Two days later he wrote: "Also back off boys she's #mine," and when a follower asked if the pair were dating or just friends, he replied, "You betcha buddy. Dating it up date style."
The posts have since been deleted and Bazz has also closed his Instagram account.
Regardless, their romance appears to be going strong. Last week the cute kids hit the Neon Trees concert with a couple of other friends. Bazz, who donned a white collared shirt for their night on the town, looked cozy with Bindi in one sweet snap.
Bindi's first boyfriend is definitely proof that time flies! We still remember when she was spreading the wildlife gospel with dance-inducing music videos like "The Hippo Moves Her Hips."
