Steve Irwin’s Widow Terri Says She Hasn't Dated Since His Death

The world was devastated when news broke in 2006 that the legendary Steve Irwin had died after being pierced in the heart by a stingray barb. Fans came together to mourn his death, but that heartache was much bigger for the Irwin family of wife Terri, son Robert and daughter Bindi.

But the matriarch of the family has revealed that despite her husband's death being more than a decade ago, she hasn't remarried, or even been on a date.

Speaking to People, Terri said: "I think it's wonderful when people who have lost someone find love again, but I'm not personally looking, and I haven't been on a date in 27 years.

"I'm content. I have two beautiful kids, a really full plate. I've already had my happily ever after.

"Steve was someone who was larger than life and really did live life to the fullest. Even though he died at 44 years of age,he lived such a full life and that's what I want to do and share."


There was plenty of outrage and concern in 2004 when Steve was feeding a near four-metre-long saltwater crocodile with one-month-old Robert in his hands.

The wildlife expert was labelled 'irresponsible' and some even amounted it to child abuse.

While it might have been 12 years since Steve passed, Terri, Robert and Bindi regularly post pictures and videos of their fallen comrade to illustrate that he's never too far from their thoughts.
