Robert Irwin has left fans heartbroken with a recent Instagram post but luckily it's all for the right reasons.

Robert is quickly becoming one of the most beloved conservationists and social media personalities on the planet as he follows in the footsteps of his late, great dad Steve Irwin.

What has also captured people's attention is Robert's romantic life with his girlfriend Rorie Buckey.

The romantic saga of the pair who both come from illustrious families, has been a focal point of public interest. Robert is of course the son of Steve, while Rorie is the niece of Heath Ledger.

The public eye first caught wind of their romance during a dinner date at a high-end restaurant in Brisbane, Australia, late last year.

Ever since announcing their romance to the world, the happy couple haven't been shy to share snaps of their love life on social media... much to the pain of some of his loyal fans.

Sharing some photos from his life, which he captioned "recently" followed by a sun, a plane, and a heart emoji, Robert showed fans what he had been up to lately, including tangling with a snake and coming face to face with a koala.

The first image in the slideshow is an adorable snap of Robert and Rorie, and this has left some fans heartbroken.

One person penned: "SHOULDVE [sic] BEEN ME IN THAT FIRST PHOTO," while a second said: "I'm not jealous. I'm not jealous. I'm not jealous."

A third added: "Tons of girls worldwide are heartbroken about you having a girlfriend," while a fourth simply said: "Anyone else get devasted by the first pic?!"

It seems like Robert has quite the following...

It's even got to the point that some have been called out in the past for their "creepy" comments left behind on social media posts.

Some really aren't happy that Robert is in a happy relationship, but other fans came to the couple's defense, criticizing those expressing a desire for him to be single.

"Why are these comments so creepy? If you can't be kind, just stop. They look happy, leave them be. And honestly, she's insanely pretty. You are all just bitter and salty," remarked one supporter.

Another chimed in: "With half of these comments, no wonder auld Robby didn't wanna show us a girl. You'd swear he saved himself for yous only. Go on, Robby, my man! Love from Ireland."

A third noted: "Some of these comments are creepy asf."

Earlier this year, the couple made their official debut at the premiere of Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One in Sydney, displaying their affection for each other in front of cameras and fans.
