It’s been over a decade since the tragic death of well-loved wildlife expert Steve Irwin, but his legacy is living on through his children.
The late Australian star’s son Robert Clarence stopped by The Tonight Show Thursday to talk about his famous dad, and share his own experiences in growing up surrounded by animals.
“This is so cool — you’re actually your dad,” Jimmy Fallon tells him after Robert, now 13, enthusiastically gives some facts about an animal seen in a childhood photo of himself and Irwin. “You’re so excited.”
“My dad was actually on The Tonight Show quite a while ago,” Robert says. “So it’s really nice to be able to follow in his footsteps. It’s really great.”
