Robert Irwin wows fans with his impressive six-pack: 'Speechless'

Robert Irwin has received enormous praise from fans on social media after he shared a shirtless video of himself doing a backflip into a lake.

In the slow-motion clip, the 18-year-old stands at the edge of a wooden plank while holding onto two poles before flipping into the water with a large splash.

He then climbs back up the ladder in his black swimming shorts, looks at the camera and gives a big smile.

“Have a flipping good week everyone,” he captioned the post alongside a peace sign emoji.

While there were a number of people in the comments who applauded his skills, a majority of followers were taken aback by his impressive physique and well-defined abs.

“Ummmm sir… You did not inform us there were abs under that khaki,” one person wrote, followed by another who added, “I actually cannot deal”.

“Who gave this guy permission to be so jacked?” a third remarked.


“When did baby Bob grow up and get abs I am OLD,” a different user shared, while someone else said, “How many times did I watch this? Yes”.

“Whoa Robert, this is Instagram, not OnlyFans,” one follower joked, with another replying, “Robert is this a thirst trap?!”

Meanwhile, plenty of fans admitted they were left “speechless” by the post, saying that he “broke the internet” and demanding to know his workout routine.

“Watching everyone realise how attractive you are is absolutely hilarious! (Your whole family is gorgeous... It was kind of inevitable, no?),” someone commented.

'Please give me a chance'

Robert also received enormous praise last month following his appearance on Celebrity Gogglebox Australia alongside his sister Bindi and mum Terri.

The wildlife warrior provided plenty of memorable moments during the one-off episode, including when he showed off his dance moves watching Dancing With The Stars, labelled Married At First Sight a “train wreck”, and yelled “strewth” at the TV.

Fans quickly rushed to social media to question why Robert doesn’t feature on TV more often and even express their desire to marry him.

“Robert Irwin, I am offering my hand in marriage,” one eager person wrote, while another added, “Robert please give me a chance”.

Robert celebrated his 18th birthday back in December, taking to Instagram to share his thoughts on the major milestone.

“It feels very surreal to be an adult,” he said.

He also posted a photo of himself playing the guitar in the back of a ute alongside the caption: “Was an absolutely epic day celebrating with friends, family and guitars. Big thanks for all the birthday love.”
