Chandler Powell is looking forward to all that's planned for 2021 -- and fatherhood is at the top of the list. In a reflective New Year's post, the 24-year-old raved about the little one he and wife Bindi Irwin have on the way. The couple is expecting a baby girl in just a few months. 

"2020 was filled with the highest of highs and lowest of lows. As easy as it is to look back on the hardships of this year, I’m choosing to revel in the highlights," Powell wrote alongside a photo of himself and Irwin holding up a baby khaki shirt. 

"I married my best friend, and our daughter will be joining us in a few short months. Starting 2021 as a husband and a dad is incredible and I’m ready for absolutely anything the year has in store for us," he added. 

Irwin also gushed about becoming a mother in her own note about welcoming 2021. 

"Chandler and I got married and as a family we filmed season 3 of Crikey It’s The Irwins, which will be airing on Animal Planet next year," Irwin wrote. "Now, we are patiently waiting for our gorgeous daughter to arrive. She’s the light of our lives. 💛"

As for her hope for the coming year, the mom-to-be concluded her post, "I hope this next year brings some peace and we find a way to come together as a society. Please remember to be kind to one another and find happiness in even the smallest of things. Thank you for your amazing support and I’ll see you in 2021."

The couple -- along with Irwin's mom Terri and brother Robert -- celebrated the holiday in Tasmania.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
