After years of friendship and mutual affection, Terri Irwin and Russell Crowe broke the news to friends last week, revealing that they’ve been secretly dating for ‘several months’ and ‘can’t fight their love any longer’.
The surprise relationship comes as insiders reveal that the Oscar-winning actor – who split from his wife Danielle Spencer in 2012 – has been spending a lot of time at Terri’s Sunshine Coast mansion.
Russ and Terri are slowly starting to take their romance public, posting affectionate comments on each other’s social media accounts.
The mum-of-two took to Twitter to tell the 52-year-old Gladiator star she was ‘thinking of him’ on his recent birthday, while Russ has affectionately called Terri ‘love’ on social media.
And in their boldest move to date, Bindi and Terri also walked the red carpet at Russell’s new movie The Nice Guys in LA recently – with Russ reportedly taking a brief moment to cosy up to new love Terri at the premiere’s after-party.
