Robert Irwin Learns to Drive in Late Dad Steve's Car
Robert Irwin is behind the wheel, but not just any wheel! The 16-year-old environmental activist took to Instagram on Tuesday to share that he's learning to drive on his late father Steve Irwin's old car.
"Here we go! I’m so excited to finally start driving... and happy to be learning in the best car - Dad’s old Ute!!" he captioned the pics of him driving a "ute" or utility vehicle along with his learner's sticker.
Not only does Robert drive the same car as his dad, but fans of Steve, who passed away in 2006 when Robert was just 2, often comment on how much the young wildlife enthusiast looks like his late dad.
"When people say that you remind us of your dad, that's the biggest compliment I could ever receive, definitely," Robert told ET's Lauren Zima in May 2019.
