Crocodile Hunter's son following in TV footsteps

  • Print

HONG KONG -- The youngest Irwin is following in the TV hosting footsteps of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin and big sister, Bindi.

Nine-year-old Robert Irwin will co-host Wild But True on Discovery Kids Asia, exploring parallels between nature and science.

He calls it a "really, really cool concept" for a television show.

The siblings appeared regularly on their father's show before he died from a sting ray injury in 2006 while shooting a documentary.

Robert says although he was just 3 when his father died, he has vivid memories.

"He was really, really passionate in every single thing that he did. I think it's really important to carry on for what he did, so I'm really glad that that's what we're doing," he says.

"I think we're really lucky too because so much of our lives together were filmed," adds his mother, Terri. "We've got that family opportunity of always filming together, so we can look back on good times anytime we want."
