For months, rumours have swirled that the young couple will get married soon, with reporting that Bindi's mother Terri is keen for Chandler to sign a pre-nuptial agreement.

The magazine claimed that the 53-year-old is doing all she can to protect her late husband Steve's legacy and their family fortune should the couple's relationship take a turn for the worse.

'Of course Terri's overjoyed Bindi and Chandler are so happy, but she's always been cautious about them making such a big commitment so young,' a source reportedly told the magazine.

However, representatives for the Irwins rubbished the claims, telling Daily Mail Australia: 'There is no truth to this report. It’s just tabloid gossip.'

Last week, Chandler's grandfather told the publication that the family are waiting for the couple's engagement news.

'It's been a while now, they're on their time frame, but we're quietly waiting (for an announcement),' John told Woman's Day.?

Despite John's comments, Australia Zoo previously confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that the couple are happy going on as they are for a while.?
