Robert’s surprising admission

This comes after Robert revealed sister Bindi Irwin is eager for him to be in a relationship so it takes the focus off her and her love life.

“It's pretty funny because of course my sister has gotten married and had a kid and there's always a lot of rumours that go around,” he told E! News.

“‘Bindi's having a second kid’ or ‘they're having triplets.’ There's always so many crazy things that happen, so Bindi always says, ‘Robert, it's your turn now. You gotta find someone to take the heat off me!’”

Robert, who has been linked with American actress Emmy Perry and Wiggles star Lucia Field, went on to say that he doesn’t have any “big scoop” about his current dating life but will “get there” eventually.
