As the son of beloved Australian Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, 18-year-old Robert Irwin has grown up in the Australian limelight.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Robert, born on December 1, 2003, continues to work at Queensland’s Australia zoo as a conservationist and zookeeper.
He even leads the Wildlife Warriors show, which includes his favourite of the animals: the saltwater crocodile.
Robert Irwin is also a nature photographer and has had his work published in Australian Geographic, ABC News and The Australian.
As of 2022, Robert Irwin’s net worth is $3 million (£2.4 million), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Robert Irwin also stars in the Discover Kids series Wild But True, alongside Isabel Yamazaki.
Separate from his work as a conservationist, zookeeper, nature photographer and television personality, Robert Irwin has also cultivated a global fanbase.
However unintentionally, young people from all parts of the globe use social media platforms such as TikTok to express their affection for the young lad..
This was the case only last week, when Robert Irwin had to politely decline the request for his phone number by a fan visiting the zoo.
Megan Grass visited Australia zoo in a bid to secure a date with her crush.
Robert opened up about the encounter and responded to Megan's crushing on him.
In an interview with Studio 10 Australia, Robert revealed whether or not he did actually look for Megan's message after she told him she'd slid into his dm's the night before her visit.
Avoiding the probe in a similar way that he did with Megan, the zookeeper said: "Good question. It was honestly, can I tell you, that made my entire day. That was incredibly kind.
"A big thank you to Megan, wherever she is. That really meant a lot, it really did."
Yet, even despite his rejection, his Irwin charm and sheer likability make it impossible to dislike Robert, proving that he continues to follow in his father’s footsteps in more ways than one.
