Steve Irwin’s youngest child, Robert Irwin, is stirring up people’s feelings after sharing snaps from his very first fashion photoshoot with Stellar Magazine.
Australians have known Robert since he was a baby and have watched him grow up to become a nature-loving, croc-feeding, conservationist just like his father.
Now, Robert has cemented his place as Australia’s newest teen heartthrob, with the internet going wild and completely frothing over the 18-year-old wildlife photographer’s newest cover shoot in Stellar Magazine.

Fans weren’t expecting to see Robert in such a smoldering light, shattering the image they previously had of a young boy, dressed in khakis, running around Australia Zoo feeding crocs.
In Fact, it was quite a shock for everyone with interesting reactions online, calling the young Irwin “goddamn fine” and “Australia’s boyfriend”. Fans did not hold back in sharing their thoughts and feelings.
One Instagram comment left on Stellar’s page read that Robert looks like a Hemsworth brother: “In my mind he’s still 8, then he comes out looking like a long lost Hemsworth?!?!”.
WOW, he’s grown up and looking good! He’s definitely way too young for me but I would be happy to put him on layby and pick him up in a few years time…hehe ????????????

While social media platforms are still flooding with “thirst” comments for the youngest Irwin, some people have earned the ire of his fans with reminders of the young Aussie’s recent birthday in December only just seeing him turn 18 – and that while they can all appreciate his mature look, they should keep their language respectful and appropriate.
