Terri Irwin and Russell Crowe revealed that they’ve been secretly dating for quite sometime now, and there must be a ‘wild’ quotient in their romance.

The two reportedly disclosed the news to their friends last week, saying that it is not possible for them to fight their love any longer.

Ten years have passed since Irwin lost her husband Steve. The Crocodile Hunter died when he was struck in the chest by a stingray.

According to Stuff, Steve left his wife in control of the family zoo, which is known as Australia Zoo on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

My role models are the people in this family (Terri, Steve, Bindi, and Robert). The Irwin family inspired me to go into wildlife biology, and ever since I was little I have loved animals of all shapes and sizes. I have never been afraid of crocodiles or snakes or spiders or bats or anything since I grew up watching these people on Animal Planet and Discovery Kids. I will still wake up in the early morning just to watch reruns of those shows. I was even close to meeting Bindi last spring break at Sea World San Antonio, but spring break was the week after she left. I inspire to be like this entire family. Thank y'all for doing what you do! I love you! #idols #rolemodels #steveirwin #terriirwin #bindiirwin #robertirwin #irwinfamily #wildlife #conservation #awareness

It has been reported that Terri Irwin and Russell Crowe had been friends for several years and they share a mutual affection.

The relationship came as a surprise, and insiders disclosed that the Oscar-winning actor has been spending a lot of time at Terri’s Sunshine Coast mansion.

The “Gladiator” actor broke up with his wife Danielle Spencer in 2012.

The couple have been gradually taking their romance public. They have been posting adorable comments on each other’s social media accounts.

Previously, is was noticed that the mother of two tweeted to tell the 52-year-old star that she was thinking of him.

It took place on his recent birthday. Russell Crowe also commented affectionately, calling Terri “love” on social media.

“Thinking of you Russell Crowe, Hope your birthday was wonderful,” Irwin wished the New Zealand-born actor on his birthday via Twitter last month.

Although there has been a denial of this romance from the Australia Zoo, the magazine New Idea said that the long-time friends have been taking their stunning chemistry to a whole new level.

“Russell Crowe is a longtime friend of the Irwin family and has been for many years, [but] the report that Terri and Russell are romantically linked is simply untrue,” a zoo representative said.
