Bob Irwin reveals: I hear Steve from the grave

Bob Irwin explains to Warren Gibbs how Woman’s Day’s acclaimed psychic Deb Webber connected him with his beloved son.

For the first time since Steve Irwin’s tragic death, his father, Bob, has finally managed to find peace and contentment – after an extraordinary beyond-the-grave encounter with his son.

Although Bob says he has long sensed Steve’s presence around him, he reveals it wasn’t until he received Steve’s message of love and support from the other side that he was convinced his son’s spirit truly lives on – and wants him to be happy.

“He has told me everything is OK, not to be sad and to keep up the fight, to continue looking after the animals,” Bob, 69, tells Woman’s Day.

A former psychic cynic, Bob describes his first true spiritual experience with Steve – who was killed three years ago by a stingray barb while diving in north Queensland – as both “powerful and moving”.

“Steve told me things only he and I knew about,” he reveals. “I still get goose bumps just thinking about it.”

Deb Webber put Bob in touch with Steve during a reading at his remote bush property, Camp Chilli, near Bundaberg in Queensland. Bob had requested the reading with Deb after she was recommended by a friend.

“I told Deb how I had felt Steve around me, how I would often wander into the bush, sit on a rock and open my heart to Steve,” Bob says. “I just desperately wanted to talk to him, and Deb thankfully made that possible. “Steve was so much more than a son to me, he was my best mate.”
