‘I can’t feel my face’: A sedated Robert Irwin slurs his words and sings The Weeknd as he recovers from surgery

He’s normally cool, calm and composed, so it was a rare sight to see Robert Irwin high on anesthetic as he recovered from wisdom teeth removal surgery.

In a video posted to Australia Zoo’s YouTube channel, the 17-year-old wildlife conservationist and photographer was seen in hospital.

Slurring his words, Robert claimed he felt ‘really good’ post-surgery, despite having a tell-tale bandage strapped around his head.

‘Can’t feel anything… I feel really good,’ he told his mother, Terri Irwin, who was behind the camera.

As he intermittently rested his head on the pillow behind him and sucked on a lemon-flavoured ice block, Terri, 56, asked Robert what his theme song would be.

Without hesitating, Robert started singing The Weeknd’s hit, Can’t Feel My Face, before dissolving into laughter.

‘I can’t feel my bottom lip. I know it’s moving, but I wouldn’t know,’ he told his mum.

Robert was filmed arriving at the hospital accompanied by Terri and his brother-in-law, Chandler Powell.

Later, he was seen heading home, this time with his sister, Bindi Irwin, in the front passenger seat of the car.

Pointing to the camera, he winked and cheekily added: ‘I’m feeling cute, might delete later.’   

‘First 20 minutes I was loopy, but I’m good now,’ he continued.
