Zoologist Steve Irwin was born Stephen Robert Irwin as “The Crocodile Hunter” since he hosted the then highest-rated series on Animal Planet with the same title.
Together with his wife, Terri, they worked on this and other projects, including Croc Files, The Crocodile Hunter Diaries, The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, Breed Vets, et cetera. And outside TV, they owned and ran a zoo in Brisbane, Queensland, started by Steve Irwin’s parents.
In September 2006, unfortunately, Irwin met his untimely death when a stingray barb pierced his heart while shooting an underwater documentary titled Ocean’s Deadliest.
The Married life of Steve Irwin with wife Terri Irwin until his death
Steve Irwin and Oregon naturalist Terri Haines met in the zoo in 1991 when the latter was visiting wildlife rehabilitation centers in Australia.
They got engaged four months later and tied the knot eight months later.
And unlike your everyday couple who go on vacations, sun bask at the beach, indulge in some cocktails, and the like for their honeymoon, these two spent theirs trapping crocodiles.
In fact, their honeymoon film footage was the pilot episode for The Crocodile Hunter.
Six years after their marriage they had their daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin and five years after that welcomed a baby boy they named Robert Clarence Irwin.
And although they were each other’s soulmates, Steve Irwin and Terri didn’t wear their wedding bands as they believed rings and any other jewelry could pose a hazard to them or the animals while working.

However, she became more open-minded when Bindi explained that some dating websites invest time in finding you a compatible match.
