'Proud Beyond Words' Bindi Irwin Gushes at 'Extraordinary' Brother Robert with Boyfriend Chandler Powell in Tow
This won't be Robert's first solo appearance on the late-night show
The Irwins take New York City!
On Thursday, Bindi, 18, took to social media to voice her support for her baby brother Robert as he heads to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. But she wasn’t alone: The whole gang is in town to show their support for the 13-year-old animal expert.
“Super excited to be back in #TheTonightShow studio ready for @robertirwinphotography to be on the show again!” she captioned the Instagram snap of herself with boyfriend Chandler Powell, brother Robert and mom Terri. “Proud beyond words of my extraordinary brother. Tune in tonight to see him showing Jimmy Fallon some gorgeous animals!”
This won’t be Robert’s first solo appearance on the late-night show. He took the stage on Feb. 16 to teach Fallon a thing or two about various animals, including two adorable sloths.

“I think I’m the luckiest kid on planet earth,” he told Fallon at the time about spending time at the Australian zoo.
Robert, who’s father was the late Steve Irwin, also was no stranger to The Tonight Show.
“My dad was on The Tonight Show quite awhile ago. So it’s really nice to be able to follow in his footsteps,” Robert told the host. “It’s really great.”
Steve died in 2006 after he was stabbed multiple times by a stingray while filming an underwater documentary.
