Bindi Irwin brings Derek Hough home to meet the family

The pair are back together but this time, in Bindi’s natural habitat!

They’ve hung up their dancing shoes but that doesn’t mean Bindi and Derek’s friendship is over!
Derek Hough, who was Bindi Irwin’s dance partner on Dancing with the Stars US, visited the Aussie superstar at her family’s Australia Zoo.
Bindi shared the snap on her Instagram account, writing, “So happy to get to introduce you to our world here in Australia! You are officially a Wildlife Warrior. Bring on the adventure!”
Bindi, 17, revealed on Sunrise a few days earlier that she had named a koala after him.
"I am excited because Derek will be visiting Australia very soon to meet his own name sake," she said.
Australia Zoo also shared a photograph of the koala himself on Instagram, captioning the photograph: “Check out @derekhough the koala! Although he may not be as smooth on the dance floor or as light on his feet as his namesake, he sure is good at melting hearts!”
How adorable!
