'Meet me for a drink?': Domenica Calarco asks Robert Irwin out despite backlash over age gap

'Married At First Sight' star Domenica Calarco, 29, blew a kiss at wildlife warrior Robert Irwin, 18, asking him out for a beer in a video she uploaded on her Instagram Story. In the video, she tagged Irwin and said, "Hey Robert, I got a beer. Why don't you come meet me for a drink?" This comes after the 29-year-old received heavy criticism for flirting with Irwin after she praised his looks in the comments section of one of his TikTok videos, according to Daily Mail.

The wildlife photographer had uploaded a video on his TikTok account in June, under which Calarco commented, "God you are so handsome!" Users on social media were quick to jump into the conversation and slammed Calarco for her behavior. One netizen commented, "That's gross, predatory behaviour. Be a better human and do better." Someone else chimed in, "He's barely 18! You're basically an old lady to him" "Chill out he's of legal age, wow," Calarco answered before someone else shot back, "Only just. Doesn't make it okay."

The television bride further defended herself on the 'MAFS Uncensored' group, where she was called "gross" by one person. "In Australia, legal age is 16. He is 18. He can drink alcohol," she insisted, referring to the age of consent. "I can ask him to come to the Logies with me, and say that he is handsome. Take a chill pill everyone," she added.

Despite the controversy, the chances of the duo being a couple seem to be highly unlikely as Irwin is dating his long-time friend Emmy Perry, according to reports. Perry, 17, is an American actress, animal welfare advocate, and heiress to a video game fortune worth an estimated $380 million. The 'Glee' star jetted to Queensland last month to spend time with Irwin. Both of them know each other since 2019.

They were first pictured together at Disneyland in 2019 after meeting earlier that year at the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner in Los Angeles. Although the posts on Perry's social media accounts suggest that they are nothing more than best friends, Woman's Day reports that they may be romantically involved. Neither Irwin nor Perry have made any comments regarding their relationship. It is also not known whether Irwin has made any contact with Calarco after she posted the video on her Instagram story.
