He’s already considered a bit of a heartthrob, so it might come as sad news to some fans that Robert Irwin has reportedly been spotted out on a date with a rumoured new girlfriend.
Eighteen-year-old Irwin – son of the late Steve Irwin and brother to equally famous sister Bindi – was recently seen grabbing burgers and fries from Grill’d with Scarlett Buckley, New Idea reports.
It’s not known how the pair met, but sources told New Idea that after grabbing burgers and fries the pair headed to the beach to eat and have a cuddle as the sun set.
“Because I am sort of stepping into adulthood, having turned 18, and navigating that is hard enough [but] when you are in my situation, and you don’t have a father figure to guide you through, it’s really hard,” he said.
The zookeeper – who has actively carried on his father’s wildlife conservation legacy – shared that while this aspect of his life was important, he also planned to pursue his own passions.
