Everlasting love. Terri Irwin revealed in a new interview that she hasn’t dated anyone since her late husband, Steve Irwin, passed away in 2006.
“I haven’t been on a single date since Steve died,” Terri, 52, told The Australian Woman’s Weekly on Wednesday, August 3.
The Aussie animal lover — who wed the Crocodile Hunter personality in June 1992 — explained to the publication that if Steve had never walked into her life, she might not have ever become a wife or mother.
“If I hadn’t met Steve, I probably would never have married,” the mom of two shared, “because I wasn’t looking for love when I met him. What we had was incredible.”
Terri had daughter Bindi, 18, and son Robert, 12, with her beloved spouse, who died nearly a decade ago at age 44 after being attacked by a stingray while filming a documentary in Australia.
Last October, Terri told Entertainment Tonight that living the single life doesn’t bother her one bit and that she truly believes that she found a soulmate in Steve.
“I think I’ve had my happily ever after,” she said at the time. “I still feel immense love and loyalty to Steve. And I’ve got great kids, I’ve got a very full life, and while I’m lonely for Steve, I’m not a lonely person.”
“And I think for other people who have lost someone and have loved again,” the wildlife advocate added, “it’s a beautiful thing, but it’s just not really on my horizon.”
