On the Sept. 5 episode of the Today show, Kelly Ripa reportedly shared a story about how the death of "The Crocodile Hunter" host Steve Irwin affected her oldest son, 8-year-old Michael.
Kelly says when she told her oldest son about Steve’s death, he began to cry, saying he had lost his "hero." Kelly says Michael has always been a fan of the reptiles that Steve showcased on his show, especially the alligators and crocodiles.
Kelly, herself, was also saddened by Steve’s death, having co-hosted "Live with Regis & Kelly" with him previously.
