Paige has been with Dr. Irwin for so long, that many would even consider her to be his better half...

Somehow Dr. Irwin managed to sweep her of her feet (actually almost somewhat gracefully even) and she has not left his side since. Paige loves to work hard, spend as much time as possible in the great outdoors with her four kids and husband, and playing Quacks of Quedlinburg with Dr. Irwin... and annihilating him almost....every...single...time...
