The Irwins have struggled to keep Australia Zoo functioning amid the COVID-19 lockdown.

He continued: ‘But mum did an amazing job leading the team through it. She’s the reason why we’re still here.’ 

Terri, 55, added: ‘We’re still here. We’re in a tiny amount of debt but we’re still here.’ 

Australia Zoo has since reopened, after being closed for 78 days.

In the trailer for ‘Crikey! It’s the Irwins: Life in Lockdown’, Terri became emotional as she revealed a pact she made with her late husband Steve Irwin. 

‘He said to me, if anything happens to me, just make sure Australia Zoo continues. So it is really important that we keep this going,’ Terri revealed. 

Terri said in the trailer, which was filmed several months ago: ‘We don’t really know how long we will be shut down for.’

‘It might be another month, it might be another six months,’ she added, with her voice wavering with uncertainty. 

Bindi openly said she wished her famous father was at the zoo to help: ‘I just keep thinking gosh, I just wish dad was here to help us out with everything.’ 

Elsewhere in the extended trailer, Bindi talks of the dire predicament the pandemic has put the iconic Australian zoo in.

Worried: 'We have enough food to continue on for about six weeks,' Bindi says in the trailer. 'But after that we are seriously going to be running out of funds'

pregnant stassi schroeder reveals 93 percent of her shoes dont fit anymore

Stassi Schroeder is preparing to welcome her first child, after announcing she’s pregnant with fiancé Beau Clark. 

As the 32-year-old former Vanderpump Rules star recently passed the halfway point of her pregnancy, she opened up about experiencing swollen feet.

‘So this is fun: 93% of my shoes don’t fit anymore,’ the Straight Up With Stassi podcast host told her 2.2 million Instagram followers on Saturday.

While the mom-to-be successfully slipped into a form-fitting, strapless black dress, she appeared reluctant to coordinate the look with a pair of classic white sneakers.  

In the snap, Schroeder, whose baby girl is due in January, gently cradled her burgeoning baby bump and smiled softly for the camera. 

As she stood in front of her pristine bed for a mirror selfie, the beauty looked effortlessly chic with her loose blonde tresses in a low ponytail and minimal makeup.

The expectant star has been glowing ever since she officially announced her pregnancy on June 23 with a cute photo of herself and her fiancé.

‘We’re having a baby girl,’ she captioned the snap, which showed her in a ribbed off-the-shoulder dress as Beau planted a kiss on her cheek. 

‘Stassi and Beau will be welcoming their first child the first week in January and are grateful and eager to begin the next chapter of their lives as parents,’ a rep for the couple confirmed to DailyMail.com in June.

The New Orleans native has been dating the casting agent since the end of 2017, and the pair announced their engagement in July 2019.

The lovers had been looking forward to a destination wedding in Rome that was scheduled for October, but the coronavirus pandemic forced them to delay it until 2021.

The wedding would likely have been a major part of Stassi’s series Vanderpump Rules, but she was fired on June 9 for her racist actions toward her Black former costar Faith Stowers.

Faith accused Stassi and her friend Kristen Doute, who was also fired, of reporting her to police in 2018.

The two women falsely claimed she was a woman suspected of a string of robberies, despite knowing that she was not the person in question. 

Stassi also made racist statements in a 2017 episode of her Straight Up With Stassi podcast in which she complained about Black people asking for special treatment in Hollywood.

Schroeder apologized for making ‘racially insensitive comments’ in the past in an Instagram post from June 7, and made the vague statement that she would ‘continue to take accountability for what I have said and done, while pushing myself to do better.’

She also claimed to have changed significantly since those racist actions and remarks, and said she was ‘filled with remorse and regret for the hurt’ she caused, especially to Faith.

Since turning her Instagram account private, she has been pregnancy updates, including that she feel her like baby is ‘sucking every last bit’ of her ‘energy’
