Married At First Sight Australia star Domenica Calarco has raised eyebrows after she invited Robert Irwin, who is almost ten years younger than her, out for a beer. Watch the moment below:

The reality star, 29, took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday (7 July) to post a video of herself with a spare beer outside a food truck before blowing the young conservationist, 18, a kiss.

Tagging Robert in her now-deleted Story, Domenica said in the clip: "Hey Robert, I got a beer. Why don't you come meet me for a drink?"

The MAFS star’s latest video aimed at the zookeeper, who is the son of late wildlife expert Steve Irwin, comes after she faced backlash for calling him 'handsome'.

Last month, she wrote, "God you are so handsome!" in the comments section of one of his TikTok videos.

In response to her remark, one commenter wrote, "Ask him out!" to which Domenica added: "Robert, would you like to come to the Logies with me?"

However, her playful commentary didn’t go down well with everyone, with many flagging her 11-year age gap with Robert and claiming it was 'creepy'.

One penned: "You're literally 28? This is f***ing creepy? I was a fan of yours."

Another added: "He's barely 18!' You're basically an old lady to him".

In response to the backlash, Domenica wrote" "Chill out he's of legal age, wow". However, a commenter responded: "Only just. Doesn't make it okay".

Following the furore on TikTok, she then was seen defending her comments on the MAFS Uncensored group, after she was called 'gross' by a viewer.

Referring to the legal age of consent in Australia, the reality star wrote: "In Australia, legal age is 16. He is 18. He can drink alcohol.

"I can ask him to come to the Logies with me, and say that he is handsome. Take a chill pill everyone."

While all this unfolds, it has been reported that Robert is happily dating his long-time friend Emmy Perry, 17, after she jetted to Queensland last month to spend time with the environmentalist, according to Woman’s Day.

The pair first met in 2019 at the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner in Los Angeles and have been friends ever since.

Tyla has contacted Robert Irwin’s rep for comment.
