How scary!

Robert Irwin has taken to Instagram to reveal he had to undergo emergency surgery to remove his appendix recently. The 14-year-old wrote:

"Kicking off the new year with emergency surgery. I’m recovering well and feeling so much better without my pesky appendix!"

Alongside the caption was a snap Robert in hospital looking quite cheery – to be honest we wouldn't expect anything less from the TV presenter who constantly has a smile plastered across his face. 

Just recently the star told The Courier Mail he wanted to forge his own path rather than follow in his father's footsteps.

“I don't want to be exactly like Dad, I don't want to be Dad, but I do want to continue his legacy... I am trying to make him proud. I would like him to be proud.”

We wish Robert a speedy recovery!
