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. Iā€™m recovering well and feeling so much better without my pesky appendix!"

Alongside the caption was a snap Robert in hospital looking quite cheery ā€“ 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.

ā€œI 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.ā€

We wish Robert a speedy recovery!
