He will be celebrating his 17th birthday in a few months.

With a wave of white-blond hair, the youngster was dressed in a cute onesie decorated with an animal print.
“Baby Robert – circa 2004,” the son of late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, simply endorsed the post.
His sister Bindi, 21, quickly responded to the heartbreaking post and wrote, “Aaaaand, I’m crying happy tears again!”

Robert and Bindi lost their father Steve in 2006, after the iconic Aussie star was pierced in the chest by a stingray while filming a wildlife documentary.
The post comes when the Irwin family gears up for their latest Animal Planet TV series.
In the show, entitled Crikey! It’s the Irwins: Life in Lockdown, the Irwin family addresses the financial difficulties their zoo has endured during the three-month COVID-19 lockdown.

In a trailer for the upcoming series, Robert and Bindi’s mom Terri 55 says the zoo’s typical weekly wage bill is $ 400,000, which accounts for 52 percent of company income.
“The pandemic has hit the Australian zoo hard financially … I can’t even come close to paying bills. We have to put down staff and it is very emotional, ”says Terri.
Additionally, Bindi Irwin and her husband Chandler Powell, 23, have lost the money for their honeymoon to keep the zoo operational.
“We originally planned to take a road trip on our honeymoon,” says Bindi, adding that she and Chandler agreed to stay at the compound and care for their 1,200 animals instead.
Australia Zoo reopened to the public earlier this month, on June 12, with social distance measures.
