Robert Irwin says US tourist who asked for his phone number ‘made all day’ after her daring fetch attempt went viral on TikTok

Robert Irwin has revealed how an American tourist who asked for his phone number ‘made his whole day’.

Last week, a TikTok video went viral of Utah’s Megan Grass trying to get Robert’s numbers while visiting Australia Zoo in Queensland.

The 18-year-old conservationist told Today presenters Karl Stefanovic and Ally Langdon on Friday that the gesture “meant the world” to him and went “straight to his heart.”

“Honestly, that made my whole day. It was so kind. [It] really meant the world,” he said.

“Unfortunately I can’t just go out and give my number to everyone, and it’s hit and miss, you know. But it was really friendly. It went straight to my heart. It was something that meant the world,” he added.

Robert went on to say that his focus is now on continuing his late father Steve Irwin’s legacy in conservation.

The 18-year-old conservationist told Today hosts Karl Stefanovic and Ally Langdon on Friday that the gesture “meant the world” to him and went “straight to his heart.”

“Well, I’m very flattered,” he replied before asking Megan where she was from.

He added: ‘The easiest way’ [to contact me] is on Instagram, because then my people can follow it and see when it comes in, because my song is mixed.”

Megan told Robert that she already DMed him on Instagram but he didn’t reply.

“Well, I sent you a DM last night to tell you I was coming here today,” she said.

‘What’s your name? I will look it up!’ replied Robert.

Megan appeared on the Today show last week and revealed that Robert hadn’t been in touch with her since her video made headlines.

She said she asked for his number because she thinks he’s “literally the sweetest person ever” and a “great guy.”
