In 2006, Steve Irwin, the most popular crocodile hunter, lost his life after he was attacked by a stingray that stabbed him several times. After his death, the zookeeper, conservationist and television star left behind his wife Terri Irwin and two children. What was very well known about Steve and Terri was their happy and loving relationship, and this has led to people asking if she has gotten love again since her husband died.
Terri Irwin’s Bio
She was born on July 20, 1964, as Terri Raines in Eugene, Oregon. She was raised in Canada with her two sisters by her parents, environmentalists and wildlife enthusiasts Clarence and Judy Raines.
Even as a little girl, she learned to love animals because her father always brought home injured animals that the family cared for. This led her to found a rehabilitation center for animals. The encounter with Steve became another thing that brought her even closer to wild animals.
She appeared in many animal documentaries, such as The Crocodile Hunter, Croc Files, The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, The Wiggle: Wiggle Waggle, Eco-Pirates: The Story of Paul Watson, and Kangaroo, among others.
On November 15, 2009, Terri Irwin became an Australian citizen in honor of her husband. She was previously named an honorary member of the Order of Australia in 2006.
Husband And Children
Terri first saw Steve Irwin in 1991, when she was on holiday in Australia at Queensland’s Reptile and Fauna Park. When she saw Steve Irwin, he was in khakis and talking passionately about crocodiles. When she realized that they both shared a passion for wildlife, she introduced herself to him, and, over time, they began dating.
Eight months after they first met, the madly in love couple decided to make it official by becoming man and wife in Oregon on June 4, 1992. When he proposed to her for the first time, Terri revealed that there were many reasons in her head why they shouldn’t get married, but there was something deeper in her that could only say yes.
Their union was blessed with two children, Robert Irwin, and Bindi Irwin. Both Robert, who was born in 2003, and Bindi, who was born in 1998, are now actors. What’s more, they have not strayed too far from what their parents were involved in, having appeared on several television shows about wildlife.
While working on the production of the documentary Ocean’s Deadliest in 2006, Steve decided to get some footage for his daughter’s TV show Bindi the Jungle Girl. He spotted a stingray and decided to film it as it swam away. Unfortunately, the stingray attacked Steve violently with his tail over a hundred times. Although it was thought that he only had a punctured lung, it turned out that he had also punctured his heart, causing him to bleed to death when he urgently needed medical attention.
Did Terri Irwin Remarry? Who is her New Husband?
The big question that many have asked is whether Terri came to marry someone else after the loss of her husband. Interestingly, she didn’t marry, so there is no new husband.
When Steve Irwin died, her children were only eight and two years old at the time, so her first problem was coping with the loss and helping her children to do the same, although she revealed that Robert was sitting in the bathtub crying that he just wanted his father. There was also a lot of work for her to do and keep up with her husband’s legacy.
Until now there have been several online sources claiming that she was in a relationship with film producer and actor Russell Crowe. Nonetheless, this is not true as she has revealed that she was already happily ever after with Steve. Terri hasn’t gone out with anyone since her husband died. Although she believes that it’s good for people who have lost loved ones to find love again, she believes that she is happy with what she had and also with her two children.
