Fans were quick to praise the post, with many saying the couple had one of the “great love affairs of our time.”

“The most inspiring couple ever,” one wrote.

“The most beautiful love story ever! Happy anniversary, Steve and Terri!”

“You two have a love that was written in the stars! Happy Anniversary, sending so much love,” commented another.

“Happy anniversary. What a sweet love story you have and what a beautiful family you both created.”

Terri’s heartfelt message came after she recently shared that she could never date another man after having found her “happily ever after” with Steve.

Speaking to US Weekly, Terri admitted while there were a lot of wonderful men in the world, none could compare to her late husband.

“I totally got my happily ever after,” she told the publication.

“And while there are a lot of wonderful men in the world, can you see another Steve Irwin? I just can’t. I’d be like, ‘I love that you’re a librarian and the dude decimal system is cool, but I got to go jump a crocodile and do that.’ Forget that.”

The 59 year old joked the only man who could tempt her into dating again was celebrity crush, Russel Crowe.

“I am in love with Russell Crowe desperately, but we all are,” she said.

It is not the first time Terri has opened up about her feelings for Steve, previously sharing that she saw him through her family.

“I see Steve and his love for his family all the time. I saw it when Bindi had Grace, I see him in Grace,” she previously told The Courier Mail.

“But here’s the thing, you know if Steve were physically here, I probably wouldn’t see Grace for dust. He’d be off with her in his arms showing her all the animals and the trees and the flowers and the sky just like he did with our kids.

“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.”

Steve died in 2006 at the age of 44, after encountering a stingray off the coast of Northern Australia.

He left behind widow, Terri, and two children, daughter Bindi, then aged eight and Robert then aged three.
