Robert Irwin Gets Surprised For 17th Birthday With Special Video of His Dad Steve Irwin

Robert Irwin poses with his family while celebrating his birthday at Australia Zoo on Tuesday (December 1) in Beerwah, Australia.

The now 17-year-old was joined by mom Terri, pregnant sister Bindi and brother-in-law Chandler Powell for the group photo with his sloth birthday cake.

For his special day, the crew at the zoo surprised Robert with a special video of his dad, the late Steve Irwin, talking about passing on the family legacy.

“Our lovely Australia Zoo crew made this beautiful video to celebrate my birthday, and it means the world to me ❤️ I am beyond honoured to continue my dad’s legacy and I hope more than anything that he would be proud. I want to thank you for all of your lovely birthday messages and thanks to all who joined us for the celebrations at Australia Zoo today. Looking forward to seeing what this next year brings, in the last year of my childhood!” Robert wrote on Instagram.

“Happy Birthday to my amazing brother! Your kind heart and fantastic sense of humour makes my every day. Our baby girl is going to love her ‘funcle’ (fun uncle) so very much. You’re one of the brightest lights the world has ever seen. I’ll always be here for you. Love you!” Bindi wrote on Instagram, along with photos from her wedding.

“Wishing a happy 17th birthday to my awesome brother-in-law! Whether it’s going for a surf, feeding a crocodile or late night spotlighting I’m always grateful for all of the adventures we have! Can’t wait to celebrate with you today, Robert. 🎉,” Chandler shared on his account.
