Robert and Rorie went Instagram official in August, after months of rumours they were dating.
Rorie reportedly completed an Irwin-approved ‘wildlife warrior boot camp’ before she and Robert became an official couple.
Woman’s Day claimed last month that Rorie had to win over the family by having a willingness to get out into nature.
The pair are currently in a long-distance relationship, with Robert based at Australia Zoo in Queensland while Rorie is in Perth.
Robert is reportedly planning to pop the question to his girlfriend Rorie.
According to New Idea magazine, he could propose when his girlfriend visits him in Africa while he films I’m A Celebrity in the coming months.
‘Everyone is convinced he is aiming to pop the question when they’re in Africa,’ an insider said.
‘Robert is crazy about her and is planning something unforgettable when he formally proposes. They both know it is part of their plans so he’s been dreaming up special ways to make it a surprise.’

The source went on to say Robert and Rorie are taking their relationship ‘very serious’ and have been planning a future together.
Robert and Rorie, who is the niece of legendary Australian actor Heath Ledger, have plenty in common and both grew up in the public eye after suffering the devastating loss of a family member.
Heath was at the top of his Hollywood career when he was found dead in January 2008 following an accidental prescription drug overdose.
Robert’s father Steve Irwin, known to the world as the ‘Crocodile Hunter’, died aged 44 on September 4, 2006, after being pierced in the chest by a stingray.
