Terri Irwin shares an emotional tribute to husband Steve

They were the original Wildlife Warrior power couple, who lovingly worked alongside each other at Australia Zoo.

And while Terri Irwin continues that legacy alongside their children Bindi, 19, and Robert, 14, it’s without her rock and husband of more than 14 years, Steve.

To celebrate her ‘hero’, the 53-year-old shared a little known fact about the Crocodile Hunter on what would have been his 56th birthday.

 

‘He was my hero’: Terri Irwin shares an emotional tribute to her late husband Steve on what would have been his 56th birthday

‘Thinking of Steve today. He was so many things to so many people. He was definitely a hero. He was my hero,’ she captioned the post.

According to the image she posted on Twitter, Steve was filming a documentary near Baja, Mexico, in 2003 when he overheard two scuba divers had gone missing in the area.

Without a second thought for his project, Steve called in a search plane and his entire crew stopped filming for two days to look for them.

He also valiantly escorted the sole survivor to safety.

‘From tiny beginnings, they grew that park into the now enormous Australia Zoo. The tree where they were first engaged is still standing here. Such a special love story of the greatest Wildlife Warriors.’

Terri told People magazine she hasn’t been on a single date since he passed away 12 years ago.

‘I’ve already had my happily ever after,’ she said.

‘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.’
