It’s July 2018, and Terri Irwin is trying to keep her composure while appearing on the Australian chat show Anh’s Brush with Fame. Terri is the widow of the late wildlife expert Steve Irwin, you see, and discussing her deceased husband with the show’s host has brought a whirlwind of emotions to the surface. After all, Terri is about to reveal a secret that her beloved spouse had confessed to her in his final weeks. And the never-before-heard tidbit proves that Steve had in fact been fearful for his life.
