Looks like Bindi Irwin just may have a new man in her life!
The 15-year-old daughter of late Crocodile Hunter star Steve Irwin is rumored to be dating Bailey "Bazz" Lancaster, her "best friend" with whom she recently shared two adorable Instagram snaps.
"Three of my best friends...one just happens to be a tiger ❤," the blond beauty captioned the photo with her pal and rumored (first!) beau, who is smiling from ear to ear as he poses next to Bindi while petting the tiger cub.
"Such a fun night for all of us! #NeonTrees," she wrote of a more recent snap, where she's posing with Bazz in the top right corner of a pic-framed Instagram photo.
According to Australian reports, Bazz has made no secret of his affections for Irwin on the social media site, commenting on a pretty photo of the wildlife enthusiast in late September writing, "Mine. Back off boys. Getting pretty jelly."
The site also reports that two days later he wrote "Also back off boys she's #mine" when commenting on another pic, and, when asked by one of Irwin's 46,000 followers if the duo is dating or just friends, he replied, "You betcha buddy. Dating it up date style."
While there's no apparent proof of Lancaster's reported Instagram comments, his remarks have since been deleted, as well as his social media account since the media caught wind of the purported couple.
Regardless, the rumors of Bindi's budding romance are just another testament to the fact that the teen, who celebrated her 15th birthday in July, is indeed growing up as she continues to promote her father's message of wildlife conservation.
"He [Steve Irwin] was the greatest dad on the planet," she told E! News last month. "He was our inspiration, who we looked up to the most and, for us, we wanna carry on his legacy. We wanna make sure that his message of wildlife and conservation continues, because he was the world's greatest conservationist and so we never want that message to die."
