Saskatoon man featured in joke on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon

The late Steve Irwin's son Robert is now 13 and he's growing up to be just like his dad.

According to Us Weekly, Robert Irwin appeared in "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" recently.

Ten years after Steve Irwin was killed, his son Robert has made his solo television debut, and proved a hit with United States audiences.

He said "it's in my blood", adding: "I am the luckiest kid on the planet". His love for animals was open for all to see as the boy brought several animals along with him in the show.

Chance the Rapper , 23, is a favorite to win Best New Artist amid acclaim for his gospel-infused hip-hop. The only ones that were there were Beyoncé , Lady Gaga, Adele , Katy Perry, Rhianna and Jennifer Lopez.

Robert showed the same enthusiasm for animals as Steve, causing Jimmy to say, "It's so cool to see you like this, you're actually your dad!" Much like his father, Robert genuinely loves animals and life at the zoo.

Steve Irwin died in 2006 when he was stung in the chest by a stingray barb while shooting an underwater documentary but his children Robert and big sister Bindi have continued his legacy. It was like Steve Irwin was never gone.

"You are more and more like Dad every day."

Now, I don't know about you, but I had plum forgot that Irwin had a son named Robert as well as his famous daughter Bindi. Robert Irwin will continue to honor his father at the gala in his honor in L.A. on May 13th, where he and his sister will raise money for Wildlife Warriors.
