ROBERT & ELISHA TAKE THE NEXT STEP
Things are moving fast for Robert Irwin and his new girlfriend, Elisha Jackson, and it appears the pretty blonde has stolen his heart for keeps.
The lovebirds were seen enjoying a romantic bike ride together after they recently were spotted on a double date with Robert’s sister Bindi and her new husband Chandler Powell. The young couple were pictured mounting their bikes before cycling off for their date. An onlooker said they appeared very much at ease in each other’s company.
The pair are believed to have met on Instagram after Elisha confessed she had a little crush on the son of the late Steve Irwin.
Elisha visited Australia Zoo and posted a sweet note on Instagram: “Yesterday I went to Australia Zoo and told @robertirwinphotography how I felt.”
Now, friends say they think Robert may have found his match. Robert is said to be smitten with his new girlfriend, and hopes his family will accept her as much as they did Chandler.
“Robert and Elisha have so much fun together,” says a source. “And he is very protective of her.”
The insider adds that Robert is the happiest he has been since meeting Elisha.
“Everyone just loves seeing Robert so happy, especially Bindi and Terri. They just hope it lasts and that Robert doesn’t have his heart broken. He deserves a nice girl and everyone is hoping Elisha is the one.”
And there’s no doubt that Robert is hoping for his own fairytale ending – just like Bindi and Chandler.
“Bindi and Chandler, words cannot describe how happy and proud I am that today you started your married life,” the 16-yearold wrote in a post featuring his sister’s wedding photo. “It truly was an emotional and beautifully spontaneous day.”
