Steve Irwin’s widow Terri has spoken for the first time about her husband’s untimely death earlier this month.

She told Good Morning America of the moment she heard about his death, saying: “Steve’s friend and manager John Stainton rang.”

“He said, ‘There’s been a diving accident with Steve’ and I thought, ‘Don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it’ and he said it. He said those three words, ‘Steve is dead’.”

She admitted that she is still coming to terms with the Crocodile Hunters death and thanked the public for their “thoughts and prayers”.

She then went on to talk about last week’s memorial service, saying: “I walked into the Crocoseum and I knew people would be missing Steve but the feelings of love and support from Australians was just overwhelming.”

“He would have said, ‘Crikey, mate, I can’t believe this’.”
