He’s already considered a heartthrob, so it might be sad news for some fans that Robert Irwin was reportedly spotted out on a date with an alleged new girlfriend.
Irwin, 18 – son of the late Steve Irwin and brother to equally famous sister Bindi – was recently spotted grabbing burgers and fries from Grill’d with Scarlett Buckley, New Idea reports.

It’s not known how the couple met, but sources told New Idea that after grabbing burgers and fries, the couple headed to the beach to eat and cuddle while the sun went down.
Scarlett Buckley, 18, and identical twin sister Rorie are believed to be the nieces of the late Australian actor Heath Ledger, New Idea reports.
In 2018, they were pictured with Heath Ledger’s sister Kate at an Australians in Film Heath Ledger Scholarship Dinner in Los Angeles, California.
Last month Robert Irwin admitted sister Bindi pressured him into dating to take her “some of the heat”.
Recent rumors that he was dating new Blue Wiggle, Lucia Field seem to be off the mark.
Earlier this year, the teenager wowed fans with a big glow-up for Stellar magazine.
When he posted the slick and sophisticated pictures on social media, fans went wild.
“Well, being asked to appear on the cover of Australia’s Stellar Magazine was definitely something different!” he wrote.
“Well hello damn handsome boy,” said singer Amy Shark.
One fan observed how “little Robert is suddenly a man”.
“As it will take me several years to recover from this Robert Irwin magazine cover/spread,” wrote another.
In the accompanying interview, Irwin admitted that growing up without his father Steve, who died in 2006, was “really tough.”
The late Crocodile Hunter’s son was just two years old when his father died aged 44 after a stingray’s barb pierced his chest.
“Because I’m sort of entering adulthood after I turn 18 and navigating that is hard enough [but] When you’re in my situation and you don’t have a father figure to guide you, it’s really hard,” he said.
The zookeeper, who has actively carried on his father’s conservation legacy, shared that while this aspect of his life was important, he also planned to pursue his own passions.
The youngest Irwin has a passion for photography and often shares his work on his Instagram @robertirwinphotography.
“I want to make my own path and I’m really passionate about photography,” said Irwin.
