It takes a strong person to date someone in the Irwin family, and Bindi Irwin's boyfriend, wakeboarder Chandler Powell, seems like he was built for the job.

Bindi, 17, and Chandler, 18, are in a committed relationship after first meeting in 2013. While the two seem totally smitten with each other, Bindi's mom Irwin joked to ET about what kind of relationship advice she lends to the happy couple.

See photos of the Irwin family:

"I just remind them that I do have a gun license," Terri joked.

"And we have access to crocodiles as well," Bindi's 11-year-old brother Robert chimed in.

It might take some time before Terri has to worry about Robert entering the dating pool. Although he's been getting plenty of positive female attention due to his TV appearances, the pre-teen told ET that his attention is elsewhere.

"I'm a lot more interested in wild life at the moment," Robert said.

As for Terri, she doesn't plan on dating after her husband Steve was killed by a stingray while filming a wildlife documentary called Ocean's Deadliest in 2006.

"I think I've had my happily ever after and I still feel immense love and loyalty to Steve," Terri said. "And I've got great kids. I've got a very full life. While I'm lonely for Steve, I'm not a lonely person. I'm doing OK, but I think if I hadn't met Steve, I probably would have never married."

Steve and Terri provided the perfect example of true love for their kids -- a lesson which remains with them today.

"We are so close because we truly believe that the meaning of life is unconditional love, and as a family we're always there for each other," Bindi said.
