In a post on Instagram, Bindi revealed Robert would take the place of their father, Steve, as he walks her down the aisle to meet future husband, Chandler.

"Dad, you would be so incredibly proud of Robert. He has been such an amazing support during this beautiful new life chapter. I know you’d be beaming with pride when the time comes that he walks me down the aisle. I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us," the post read.

Bindi and her fiancé, Chandler have been an item for six years, with the professional wakeboarder relocating from his home in Florida to Queensland to be with Bindi in late 2018.

The pair met at Australia Zoo back in 2013, while he was in Australia for a wakeboarding event. According to Entertainment Tonight, he visited Australia Zoo where Bindi was giving tours. The pair hit it off instantly, and after Chandler asked Bindi's mum, Terri for permission, the two stayed in touch... and the rest is history!
