Bindi Irwin’s five-word message to Robert Irwin’s girlfriend weeks after Rorie Buckey ‘got his family’s approval’

It seems it’s not just Robert Irwin who’s enamoured with Rorie Buckey.

Over the weekend, Buckey, 19, shared a sweet snap to Instagram of Irwin holding a Polaroid photo of the two of them cuddled up seemingly on a boat, with Buckey appearing to don the famous Australia Zoo khaki uniform, matching her beau.

Her caption was a simple tribute to the 19-year-old Wildlife Warrior – ”🌏❤️” – but it was a comment left underneath the post by his sister that drew eyes.

“Love this and love you! ❤️,” Bindi Irwin, 25, wrote to Buckey underneath the post.

Buckey replied: ”❤️🥰”

It wasn’t just Irwin’s sister that had something to say about the couple’s snap, with Buckey’s twin Scarlett Buckey commenting: “Such a beautiful photo ☺️🫶🏻”

Buckey, however, only replied to Bindi Irwin’s comment.

Robert Irwin and Rorie Buckey were first photographed together in Queensland in November 2022, though the couple didn’t confirm their relationship until well into 2023.

They made their first public appearance together at the Mission: ImpossibleDead Reckoning Part One premiere in Sydney in July.

One month after the star-studded event, they went ‘Instagram official’, with Irwin taking to the social media platform to share his first selfie of the duo together in August.

Buckey, who is the niece of late Australian actor Heath Ledger, is based in Perth, while Irwin spends a majority of his time at Australia Zoo, which is located on the Sunshine Coast.

Despite keeping the first nine months of their relationship private, since going public, the couple haven’t shied away from sharing their moments together on social media – and Bindi Irwin, alongside Terri Irwin, also haven’t held back their thoughts on the duo.

In fact, when Buckey shared a series of snaps of her and Irwin in early September, Terri Irwin said of her son and his partner’s relationship: “❤️ Wonderful life adventures!”

Bindi Irwin also showered her brother and his girlfriend in love, commenting: ”Love you both so much.”

“Love you Bindi 🥰,” Buckey replied.

Robert Irwin, meanwhile, simply commented a series of emojis, a habit he shares with Buckey.

He wrote: ”😊🤗❤️”
