Bindi Irwin says she only gets to see her boyfriend Chandler Powell in person every "two to three months" – and even those rare visits are shared with her mom Terri and 11-year-old brother Robert.
"I always feel bad because Chandler and Robert really like each other," Terri says in the current issue of PEOPLE of her daughter's "lovely, kind of old-fashioned" boyfriend and her son.
