Sixteen-year-old Robert has been continuing his father's legacy, as reported by People. His father had started him young in wildlife conservation.

Their bonding moments include hanging around with animals that would normally scare people. They would be surrounded by crocodiles and critters, among others.


Steve, a famous Australian television personality, was loved by millions of fans. Off-camera, he was a doting father to son Robert and daughter Bindi.



Sadly, Steve passed away in 2006 at age 44, as reported by USA Today. His untimely death, caused by a stingray attack, was mourned by millions around the world.

The fatal incident happened in Australia's Great Barrier Reef. At the time, he was working on the underwater documentary film, "Ocean's Deadliest."

Robert was barely three years old when his father died.



Robert was barely three years old when his father died. Fast forward 14 years later, Robert is now learning to drive his father's car, as reported by Yahoo UK.

He recently showed off his L-Plates on Steve's old utility vehicle. He wrote on his Instagram: "Here we go! I'm so excited to finally start driving... and happy to be learning in the best car - Dad's old Ute!!"


Along with his mother, Terri, and older sister, Bindi, Robert now stars in their own series, "Crikey! It's the Irwins." They continue working at Australia Zoo.

Earlier in March, Bindi tied the knot with Chandler Powell, as reported by Good Morning America. At her wedding, Robert walked her down the aisle wearing khaki.

It was his way of honoring their late father. Terri revealed that when Robert was little, he and his father wore matching khaki outfits to a wedding.

A day before her wedding, Bindi shared a tribute post for her late father. She posted a throwback photo of herself and her late father. In the captioned, she called her father her "guiding light."
