This is very exciting news for those who remember watching him on TV.
Irwin’s widow, Terri, and their two children, Bindi and Robert, attended the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Hundreds of fans gathered for the ceremony, including Australian comedian Rove McManus, celebrity chef Curtis Stone, and TV personality Ross Matthew. Congratulations, Irwin Family!
