After her husband, Steve Irwin, passed away in 2006, the widow's love life has been under heavy speculation. Terri told The Courier Mail that she is single as "Steve was it for me."

"I’ve stopped counting all the men I am supposed to have had flings with … the more recent one is John Travolta," she told the publication, "which is new to the mix."

"That’s just the way it is. I had a big, big love and it was enough to last a lifetime," the Crikey! It's the Irwins star said.

The Crocs and Gators co-author shared that she kept track of all the men she has been linked to "because it's kind of funny." "Let's see, apparently it’s all the Hogans — that’s Paul and Hulk; Russell Crowe, and most recently, it’s Richard Wilkins," she recalled.

"I think the most flattering would be Russell because he is such a good person, and a very good friend to our family, and I actually do really love him because he loved Steve and they were such good friends," she shared. "You know, he stepped up so much when Steve died. Russell was the very first person to call me afterwards, and he just said, 'I am so, so sorry.'"

"It meant a lot and now I kind of feel sorry for him because he is forever being linked to me so I could be cramping his style — same for Richard Wilkins," she added.

The 57-year-old also revealed that she took out a loan to protect Australia Zoo's future after it struggled to navigate the coronavirus pandemic. Terri told The Courier Mail that the loan would cover the animal sanctuary for "at least 20 years of fallout" following the pandemic.

"We are 11 years from the GFC [Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2008] and still feeling the ripples of that. So I want to be prepared for whatever's coming next," she explained.

Terri said the pandemic was difficult because she still needed to pay $80,000 a week to feed 1,200 animals, even without tourists visiting the sanctuary. Terri told the publication that she hopes there will not be a surge in COVID-19 cases but she has measures in place to protect the zoo.

She admitted that she had to cut costs which included letting staff go. However, her children, Bindi and Robert, lent a hand. She praised them for helping to raise funds as Bindi penned the book Creating a Conservation Legacy about her family's work and Robert sells his photographs.

"This is not the flu we are talking about. If you had open slather, then the health and wellbeing of the majority of people would have been devastating both in terms of the economy and human cost," the matriarch told the publication about the pandemic.
