Who is Terri Irwin?
Irwin was born Terri Raines in Eugene, Oregon, in the United States. Her love for animals and wildlife began at a very young age, seeing that her father often bought home injured animals to care for them.
In 1986, while still working for her family's long-haul trucking business, she started ' Cougar Country,' an animal rehabilitation center for predatory animals such as foxes, bears, and bobcats. It wasn't long before she was handling nearly 300 animals, annually.
The veterinary technician met Steve Irwin while in Australia and got engaged within just four months of having met each other. They tied the knot eight months later. Incidentally, the first documentary they shot was on their honeymoon, which went on to become the first episode of 'The Crocodile Hunter.'
What is her net worth?
As a conservationist, author, and TV personality, Irwin has a sizeable net worth of $10 million. Apart from her wildlife work and TV programs, she is also the owner of Australia Zoo in Beerwah, Queensland, Australia.
Her father-in-law was also involved in the zoo. However, the two had a falling out over the zoo becoming heavily commercialized. It ultimately caused a rift between the two, causing them to part ways, with Terri taking over completely. Soon, her children, Bindi and Robert joined her to help with running the zoo.
Is she currently dating?
For both Steve and Terri, they knew they'd found 'The One' almost instantly. Falling in love was a 'whirlwind' romance for them and they married each other within just 8 months after meeting each other. Terri Irwin claims that after her husband's death, she hasn't been looking for love. In an interview with People, she spoke about it at length.
"I think it’s wonderful when people who have lost someone find love again, but I’m not personally looking, and I haven’t been on a date in 27 years,” she admitted. “In fact, it’s been so long, I’ve had a couple of lovely women ask me out because they figured that’s the case. But I’m content. I have two beautiful kids, a really full plate. I’ve already had my happily ever after,” she added.
However, this hasn't stopped her from being linked with a range of men, 25, to be exact, including actor Russell Crowe. "I have kept track because it's kind of funny … Let's see, apparently it's all the Hogans — that's Paul and Hulk; Russell Crowe, and most recently, it's Richard Wilkins," she said while talking to New Idea.
"I think the most flattering would be Russell because he is such a good person, and a very good friend to our family, and I actually do really love him because he loved Steve and they were such good friends," she said, while talking highly of the actor.
'Crikey! It's a Baby!' Is a one-Hour special that can be streamed on Sunday, April 25 on Discovery+.
