Terri posted a touching tribute to the beloved wildlife expert on Twitter
Steve Irwin was beloved by fans and animal activists everywhere — and no one knows that better than his wife.
Terri Irwin took to Twitter on Friday to honor her late husband with a touching tribute on National Superhero Day.
“Celebrating my #NationalSuperheroDay,” she captioned a shot of the adored wildlife expert, who died on Sept. 4, 2006 at the age of 44 after being attacked by a stingray off the coast of northern Australia while working on the documentary series Ocean’s Deadliest.
“If I hadn’t met Steve, I probably would never have married because I wasn’t looking for love when I met him,” she said. “What we had was incredible.”
She also commemorated her late husband on Thanksgiving, penning a heartfelt tribute on Twitter.
“Thankful. 14 years of adventure and two beautiful children,” she captioned a family photo from back in the day. “Thank you to all @wildwarriors keeping Steve’s legacy alive.”
