Are Emmy Perry and Robert Irwin dating? Actress flew to Australia to spend time with photographer
Actress Emmy Perry and television personality Robert Irwin are reportedly dating each other. As per a report by Woman's Day, the 17-year-old 'Glee' actress and animal welfare advocate jetted to Australia last month to spend time with the 18-year-old wildlife photographer.
Perry has been sharing images from her trip to Australia on her Instagram, including a video of Irwin and her returning a turtle to its natural habitat. "So honored to have been a part of Turtelee McTurtle Face's return to his home after his lifesaving care at Australia Zoo Hospital. Happy trails sweet guy! [green heart emoji] [turtle emoji]," she captioned the video.
"So fun!" Irwin commented on the video. The duo was first pictured together at the annual Steve Irwin Gala Dinner in Los Angeles in 2019. "Sparks were flying between them," a source told Woman's Day. "Had such a magical time last night honoring the legacy of a man who was truly an angel to the voiceless on this planet, Steve Irwin, and gathering to help continue his lifesaving work through his amazing family!" Perry wrote.
They were next spotted hanging out at Disneyland together. "All you need is faith, trust, and pixie dust [shooting star emoji] — and a Fastpass for some of your favorite rides! Such a fun day! [sparkles emoji] [two hearts emoji]," the actress said while posting images from their Disneyland trip on her Instagram. Irwin posted the same images while wishing Perry on her birthday the next year.
"Happy birthday @emmyperryxo! We're thinking of you today and sending koala cuddles from Australia Zoo! I hope it's a wonderful celebration [celebration emoji]. Can't wait for another Disney day with you guys when the world opens back up again!" he wrote. While Perry is the daughter of Northern Irish video game developer David Perry, Irwin is the son of wildlife expert and conservationist Steve Irwin, popularly known as the Crocodile Hunter. He died on September 4, 2006, when Robert was only two years old.
Irwin came into the spotlight recently when Megan Grass, an American tourist, tried to get his phone number during a visit to the Australia Zoo. "I think you are so cool and I was wondering if I can have your number?' she said. "Well, I'm very flattered. The easiest way [to contact me] is on Instagram because then my people can monitor it and see when it comes through because my number is getting mixed."
Grass responded, "Well, I actually DM'd you last night to tell you I was coming here today." "What's your name? I'll look it up!' Robert answered. Later on the Today show, Irwin explained, "Honestly, that made my entire day. It was so kind. [It] really meant the world. I can't just go out and give my number to everyone, unfortunately, and it is hit and miss, you know. But it was really kind. It went straight to my heart. It was something that meant the world."
