‘She’s just amazing, she’s so bright, she’s so happy, she’s the most switched on little kid.
‘She’s in there wrangling snakes and she’s going in bopping koalas on the nose, she’s got the best life,’ he added.
Robert’s insight left Kochie gobsmacked, with the 65-year-old TV star asking: ‘At seven months she’s wrangling snakes?’
‘I’ve heard of uncles saying their nieces are advanced for their age – but wrangling snakes?’ Kochie continued.
‘Well, she lives at a Zoo,’ Robert replied.
