Bindi Irwin and Robert Irwin have allegedly been encouraging their mom Terri Irwin to go on dating apps.

New Idea, in its March 13 issue, claimed that Terri decided to listen to her children’s wishes. After all, she doesn’t want to grow old by herself.

“Bindi and Robert have been trying to get Terri to freshen up her look. She’s gorgeous under all that khaki and she deserves to show it off. There is a small ulterior motive from the kids though. They want to dress her up and take pictures so they can help her join dating apps,” the source said.

As of late, Terri has not plunged into the dating world literally, but she has been open to the idea of meeting men for quite some time. After all, she has been a widow since 2006 following the tragic death of her husband.

And now that her children are not getting any younger, and with Bindi already married to her husband Chandler Powell, Terri allegedly knows that it’s only a matter of time before she becomes alone and lonely at home.

Her youngest child Robert is also dating right now and it’s only a matter of time before he decides to tie the knot and settle down with his girlfriend.

But even if Bindi and Robert and already leading their own lives, their moms remains their top priority. They do not want Terri to forget about their dad Steve, but they also know that their mom deserves to find love again.

“They know she’ll never find another like their dad – no such man exists. They just want their mom to know that happiness again,” the source said.

While it is true that Terri deserves to fall in love again after all these years of being a widow, it is important to note that the decision is entirely up to her. It’s unlikely for Bindi and Robert to be pressuring their mom to join dating apps if this isn’t what Terri wants to do.

Terri can also find love organically because she has a ton of friends that can hit her up with male prospects. But the fact that she’s still single today proves that she’s not in a rush to find love and may not even be interested in dating for now.
