According to reports, Robert was first seen with Rorie on November 18, 2022. In April 2023, the two were spotted spending time with Rorie's family members. An insider told,
Meeting the family is the first step and he wants them to see that he's good enough for someone as special as Rorie. You can tell the Ledgers are very protective of her, especially after losing Heath. The last thing they want is for her to have her heart ripped out by a showbiz romance, so Robert's on his toes around her folks. He's such a genuine, humble guy with no airs and graces. He's funny too, and he reminds everyone of his father, he's very likable.
Like Robert Irwin, his girlfriend, Rorie Buckey, comes from a family of celebrities. She is the niece of the Joker actor, Heath Ledger. Her mother, Kate, is married to businessman, Nathan Bucky.
Nathan previously told the Daily Mail Australia that the new relationship has his permission.

When the publication asked if he approved of Rorie and Robert's relationship, he responded: "Of course, absolutely."
