The Irwin Family Is About to Grow Even More, and It’s Because of Robert Irwin and His Girlfriend

4 months ago

Insider information from someone connected to the Irwin family revealed some thrilling updates regarding Robert Irwin and his girlfriend, Rorie Buckey. However, not everyone seems to be pleased by the news, as Robert’s mom seems to have some reservations about it.

Australian wildlife conservationist Robert Irwin, the 19-year-old son of the late Steve Irwin, is reportedly considering proposing to his girlfriend, Rorie Buckey, after just a few months of dating. However, sources suggest that Robert’s mother, Terri Irwin, has expressed concerns about the young couple’s swift path towards marriage.

“Everyone is convinced he is aiming to pop the question when they’re in Africa,” an insider revealed, referring to where Robert will be shooting the show I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! as a host. “Robert is crazy about her and is planning something unforgettable when he formally proposes. They both know it is part of their plans so he’s been dreaming up special ways to make it a surprise.”

Although Rorie has a good relationship with everyone in Robert’s close circle, especially his family, his sister Bindi has her reservations about a possible engagement and his mom Terri is worried about the fact that they might be moving too fast. “Terri feels like Robert is moving way too fast,” the insider said. “Rorie’s a sweetheart and it’s easy to see why he is smitten, but Terri knows the stakes are high.”

Despite everything, Robert Irwin is said to have aspirations of emulating his father’s romantic gesture, as Steve proposed to Terri just eight months into their relationship in 1992. So, in more ways than one, Robert seems eager to follow in his dad’s footsteps.

The couple is currently living a long-distance relationship, as Robert is working at the Australian Zoo in Queensland, while Rorie is on the opposite coast, in Perth. Still, they have been showing their loving relationship online with photos of the two, since they became Instagram official in August 2023.

Despite what they decide for their future, we support the cute couple and wish them all the best!

In 2020, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s family grew as well but for a different reason. The couple welcomed their first child together, a daughter. Three years later, the world finally got to meet her after the singer introduced her daughter while on stage. The moment caught on camera (which you can see here) quickly went viral, with people claiming she looked just like her mom.
