Terri Irwin has ruled out finding love again, 15 years after the death of her husband Steve Irwin.

The 57-year-old conservationist married the Crocodile Hunter in 1992, a year after they met, and they went on to welcome daughter Bindi, now 23, and son Robert, now 17.

Irwin died in 2006 at the age of 44, after he was stung in the chest by a stingray barb, and Terri has admitted she doesn’t need to embark on a new romance because her late husband gave her ‘enough love to last a lifetime’.

In an interview with The Courier Mail, she said: ‘You know, and I keep saying this, and I think maybe 15 years later people are finally starting to believe me, Steve was it for me.

‘That’s just the way it is. I had a big, big love and it was enough to last a lifetime.’

Terri insisted she is ‘too busy’ to go looking for a romantic partner, as she opened up about becoming a young widow.

She said: ‘I think when you become a young widow, it can be uncomfortable for other couples, that whole, “Oh well, now she’s single, is she looking around?” And my male friends are more comfortable, they can see I’m not chasing them. I’m too busy to chase anybody.’

The mother-of-two also poked fun at the list of famous men she has been rumoured to have been romantically involved with – and was particularly amused by the suggestion she was linked to a good family friend, actor Russell Crowe, 57.

She said: ‘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.

‘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.’

Terri became a grandmother for the first time back in March when her daughter Bindi gave birth to her first child, Grace, with her husband Chandler Powell.

Bindi announced the news on Instagram, writing: ‘March 25, 2021. Celebrating the two loves of my life. Happy first wedding anniversary to my sweetheart husband and day of birth to our beautiful daughter. ❤️ Grace Warrior Irwin Powell.

‘Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s. Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior.

‘Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad. There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl. She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed.’
