It seems Bindi Irwin won’t be jet-setting to America anytime soon!
After numerous reports recently suggested the past Dancing with the Stars winner and her family are moving to the US, the Australia Zoo confirmed Bindi, 17, her mother Terri, 51, and her brother Robert, 12, have no plans to relocate to the States in the near future.
“The Irwin family live at Australia Zoo. They always have and they are not planning to move anywhere,” a zoo spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia to refute rumors the three are moving to Las Vegas to build a zoo honoring the late Steve Irwin.

Additional reports suggested Terri has been having an affair with a mysterious American man following her husband’s 2006 death and wanted to move to be with him. “This [rumor] seems to have literally come out of thin air. There is absolutely no truth to that claim,” the spokesperson added.
In a previous interview, Bindi assured fans she doesn’t foresee herself ever leaving Australia for good. “I think the States are wonderful because they are like a second home, I mean my mum’s originally from Oregon, but home for me is Australia Zoo,” she said in December 2015. “I mean we live right in the middle of Australia Zoo, so when you grow up surrounded by animals your whole life, you can’t leave that. No matter where I go, I’ll always return home.”
