Terri Irwin Joined Instagram with Tribute to SteveJustin Sullivan

Welcome to Instagram, Terri Irwin! The Australian conservationist and TV personality joined the social media platform this week, and it's safe to say she's been welcomed with open arms. Just four days after joining, she has amassed 142,000 followers, and her very first post got more than 84,000 likes and 1,300 comments.

The 59-year-old is a mom of two, Bindi and Robert, and grandmother to Bindi's daughter Grace Warrior. But her first post paid tribute to her beloved late husband Steve, the Crocodile Hunter. The 17th anniversary of Steve's death is next week, and Terri shared a photo of her and Steve sharing a sweet kiss—with an animal friend on their heads!

Terri paired the black-and-white photo with a moving quote: “One crowded hour of glorious life is worth an age without a name.” The quote is from "The Call," a poem written in the 1700s by British Army officer Thomas Osbert Mordaunt.

Terri was flooded with comments like "You are an inspiration!! I have admired you since I was a kid and now am a cheetah trainer and followed my dreams," "Our favorite love story 🧡🐊," and "Welcome aboard, Terri! Love this pic of you and Steve. True soulmates ❤️" Bindi wrote, "I love you so much. Welcome to Instagram, Mum. ❤️"

She followed up this post with news about her crocodile research and adorable photos with granddaughter Grace at the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve. We can't wait to see what Terri posts next.
