Amidst All The Gossip, Terri Irwin Comes Forward To Finally Settle All The Rumors

When Steve Irwin passed away unexpectedly more than 10 years ago, the world mourned the loss of a phenomenal wildlife activist. His wife Terri mourned the loss of her best friend, father to her children and amazing husband.
For more than a decade, Terri remained silent about moving on from her husband and finding a new lover. But when rumors started swirling about a possible new (and famous) boyfriend, she stepped into the limelight to clear things up.
According to several online publications, like the Daily Mail UK, Terri was in the midst of a whirlwind romance with close friend and Hollywood A-lister, Russell Crowe. It was no secret the two have known each other for years through their conservation projects, but a budding relationship was news to the world.
Instead of remaining quiet, Terri agreed to an interview with Access Hollywood to clear the air.
The beautiful mother of two explained that she and Russell are good friends and he was just as surprised by the headlines as she was! But that wasn't the end of the interview....
"I haven't dated anyone in the ten years since we lost Steve just because I feel a connection still with Steve. You know when you take those vows, and say ‘we'll be together as long as we both shall live,' I really don't think I would've married if I hadn't met Steve.
And he's very special to me and continues to be.
And I've got beautiful kids and a lot of wonderful conservation work, so, I'm lonely for Steve but I'm not a lonely person."
Bindi, Steve and Terri's daughter, was also on the Access Hollywood set and stood up for her mother's explanation.
"Honestly, all I want in life in mom's happiness. What people sometimes forget is that when you find your soulmate, if you've found that soulmate you really don't want to move on.
So mom had her soulmate and mom and dad will always be married and will always be together."
It's clear Terri, Bindi and Robert all miss Steve terribly, and none of them have set aside the love in their hearts.
