During a live TV appearance on Australian morning show Sunrise on Tuesday, the 17-year-old and his mother Terri Irwin talked about their series Crikey! It’s the Irwins, as well as sister Bindi Irwin’s first pregnancy. Terri, 56, says Bindi, 22, is due sometime next month, adding that her daughter is in that “sweet spot where you really miss being able to see your shoes.”
Robert then says with a laugh, “She’s massive now!” prompting his mom to gently scold him by nudging his arm. Trying to remedy the affectionate gaffe, he says, “Like, in a good way! No, like, it’s special!”
Laughing and blushing, Robert jokes, “She’s not here now.” Later in the interview, he admits, “I’m in so much trouble. I’m in so much trouble — don’t tell her about this, please!”
Sharing the moment on Twitter, Robert writes alongside the video, “Haha… woops,” and Bindi then responds, replying to her little brother: “‘Don’t tell her about this’ …. 😂 Thanks Robert! Love ya!”
“Don’t tell her about this”
😂 Thanks Robert! Love ya!

Bindi first announced her pregnancy news on Instagram back in August and kept fans up to date on her experiences on the road to becoming a parent.
Reacting to news of her daughter’s pregnancy, Terri shared in August that her late husband would undoubtedly be proud of Bindi becoming a mom. Steve (aka the Crocodile Hunter) was killed during a diving expedition off the coast of Australia in September 2006 at age 44.
