Bindi Irwin posted the sweetest goodbye message to her boyfriend, and our hearts are melting and breaking all at once

Long distance relationships are HARD, but not impossible. Just look at Bindi Irwin (daughter of the late Steve Irwin) and her American boyfriend, pro wakeboarder Chandler Powell. They’ve been going strong since 2013! But sounds like they just had to say a (temporary) goodbye.

We just heard from Us Weekly that Irwin said goodbye to Powell in the sweetest post via Instagram when he had to return to his home base in Florida.

Needless to say, our hearts are melting right now. They just spent time together in Australia with Irwin’s family and they’re parting for the holidays, which is even sadder! Looks like it could be a while before they share more precious moments.

"Thank you for the most wonderful adventures these last few months. We even got to celebrate your 20th birthday here in Australia together, hiking through the Great Dividing Range! I've known you since you were 16 and every day, from the very first day I met you, you've been my sunshine. I will see you again soon!"

Awwwwww. That is just…the cutest. It feels like these two old souls have been together for decades. Irwin went on to thank him for “everything,” and wish him the best in Florida. She wrote, “Have fun while you’re away, go find lots of manatees in Florida for me! I miss you so much already. You really do mean the world to me.”

We hope that these two lovebirds will be reunited again soon, because they clearly have a solid relationship. Powell posted his own goodbye message, and it’s just as adorable as the first.

"It seems like just yesterday I arrived in Australia for your birthday. Each good bye gets more and more difficult. I always carry even the smallest of moments, like these sunset walks through the zoo, with me no matter where I go."

Awwwwwww. Stop it, you guys!

Hope they can be together again ASAP.
