Steve Irwin’s kids stole hearts everywhere the second that the late ‘Crocodile Hunter’ unveiled them to the world. And it’s no surprise why Steve Irwin’s kids instantly became so popular. Not only were they totally adorable, they were just as sweet, funny, and daring as their universally beloved father.
Understandably, Steve Irwin’s kids spent some time away from the spotlight after their dad’s untimely death in 2006. After all, his daughter Bindi was only eight years old when the tragedy happened, and his son Robert was just about to turn three. And of course, Terri Irwin, his wife and the mother of his children, was completely devastated by the heartbreaking loss.
See how Terri Irwin’s love for her late husband lives on long after his death in this heartwarming video.
But after many years have passed, Terri Irwin has been able to open up more about her real life “superhero” and how he changed her life. And Steve Irwin’s kids are braving the spotlight once more.
Bindi, now 18, has appeared on shows like Dancing With the Stars and has already won Young Conservationist of the Year. And Robert, now 13, demonstrated he loves animals just as much as his dad did on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. It’s clear that Steve Irwin’s influence, persona, and legacy lives on through his beautiful family—and those things will never die.
See Steve Irwin’s kids then and now in the transformation pics below.
