Wedding planning is well and truly into full swing in Bindi Irwin's household.

The wildlife warrior announced her engagement just last week, and has already proposed broadcasting the wedding on TV for her fans to watch.

But the real question everyone was wondering after Bindi announced she was getting married is who would she choose to walk her down the aisle. The answer was one that Bindi was very clear about from the start.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Bindi shared that she has chosen her little brother Robert.

I think that for me, it’ll be really important that Robert walks me down the aisle. That’s something that I really want to do.

“He has been such a big part of my life and he’s always stepped up and been the one to give me a hug when I need it and encourage me forward in life,” she added of her 15-year-old brother.

As for additional wedding details, instead of a father-daughter dance, she wants her mother, Terri, to step in for the precious moment instead.

“My mum and I are so close,” Bindi said. “She’s my pillar of strength in life and I love her beyond description. So I think, when the time comes, Robert will walk me down the aisle, [Chandler and I] will have our wonderful moment and I’ll have my dance with mum.”
