Days after photos were shared of Karl Stefanovic’s wife Jasmine appearing to cradle a ‘bump’, friends of the couple have reportedly confirmed they are indeed expecting their first child together.
“Jas and Karl are over the moon,” a friend reportedly told The Daily Telegraph. “They are very happy.”
The pair have told their closest friends, as well as Karl’s children Jackson, 19, Ava, 13, and River, 12, and his ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn, according to the publication.
The apparent confirmation comes after Jasmine Yarbrough sent the pregnancy rumour mill into a spin after photos were shared from a dinner in New York on Saturday.
The shoe designer was spotted attending an intimate meal, with posts shared across social media including the words ‘baby shower’.
“I love baby showers,” was one caption on an image of Jasmine standing on the sidewalk in a big black puffer jacket. While another friend shared an image of the 34-year-old with her hand on her stomach, adding love hearts and a baby emoji.
Many of Jasmine’s close friends attended the dinner, including Montana Cox and Maureen Sebastian.
She later thanked her friends for the evening with her own post of the group on Instagram.
“Such a beautiful dinner, thanks ladies,” Jasmine captioned the image on her stories.
Yahoo Lifestyle has contacted Karl for comment.
Karl Stefanovic ‘reverses’ vasectomy
The couple, who are yet to make any official announcement, have been subject to pregnancy rumours ever since they started dating, as it was reported Karl was considering reversing the vasectomy he had eight years ago in order to give his new girlfriend a baby.
The TV host had the snip after he and estranged wife Cassandra Thorburn decided they were happy with their ‘perfect three’ kids Jackson, 17, Ava, 11 and 10-year-old River.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Karl goes under the knife again,” the source told Woman’s Day in early 2017.
Karl and Jasmine’s relationship
The couple first started dating at the end of 2016, just a few months after Karl announced his separation from ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn.
At the time, Karl admitted he wasn’t planning on jumping into a new relationship so soon after their split.
“I certainly did not expect to meet someone five months after I broke up with my wife,” he told Stellar. “That was not planned.
“I did not know her before. I met her on a boat in Sydney.”
In 2018, the 44-year-old confirmed his engagement to Jasmine, before the pair married in a romantic evening ceremony held in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico.
Jasmine’s father Bob walked her down the aisle before the smitten couple exchanged vows outside a hilltop chapel inside the luxurious One&Only Palmilla resort.
The likes of Richard Wilkins, Julie Bishop, British TV star Louise Roe and Sylvia Jeffreys were among the famous names in attendance.
