Steve Irwin’s Wife Reveals Heartbreaking Secret About Her Late Husband

It has been almost ten years since the world lost Steve Irwin, often known as “The Crocodile Hunter.” His unexpected passing at such a young age stunned and saddened many. Terri Irwin, his wife, recently discussed his passing and disclosed a heartbreaking secret during an appearance on the Australian television program “Anh’s Brush With Fame.”

53-year-old Terri made an appearance on the show to support herself as a fighter against culling. However, the subject of her late husband quickly came up. She sobbed as she described Steve’s persistent fear that his life might end too soon. “He never thought he’d have a long life,” Terri revealed. The terrible fact is that Steve’s suspicion was accurate.

That fateful day in 2006, when Steve was filming “Ocean’s Deadliest” in Queensland, Australia, a stingray punctured his chest with its barb. Terri vividly remembers being inconsolable when she had to tell their two kids, Robert and Bindi, about the catastrophe. The speaker narrates, “I just remember this incredible sense of responsibility…’what do I do next?’ which was really hard.”




Terri last saw her husband, the man she adored, as she and the children departed for Tasmania. She was unaware that it would be their final farewell. Her sadness about Steve’s death still has a big impact on her, even after 11 years. Terri tears, “Everyday it’s hard… the grief goes from being a rock in your heart to walking beside you.”

Despite the profound loss, Terri acknowledges that she is grateful to have enjoyed her “happily ever after” with Steve. She admits that she still finds herself thinking about him constantly. Everyone who knew Steve was horrified to hear of his death, and Terri believes that even he would have been surprised by the global outpouring of love and support.


Steve’s enormous popularity was largely attributed to his humility and groundedness. Terri is glad he never let his celebrity to affect him. She remembers that “Steve never considered himself to be famous.” She is happy with their dedication to protecting animals and their continued attempts to carry on Steve’s incredible legacy.

Terri, Bindi, and Robert will always be in sorrow over Steve’s death, but they are committed to preserving his love of animals. They have developed into passionate wildlife enthusiasts much like their father. As the world remembers Steve Irwin and the impact he had, we may take comfort in the knowing that his family is carrying on his legacy and ensuring that his contributions inspire future generations.
