JASMINE & KARL'S BABY BOMB SHELL!
With a glowing Jasmine sporting a noticeable bump, insiders say Karl’s determined to get her down the aisle as soon as possible
Protectively cradling her stomach and wearing a smile wider than the brim of her fedora, Karl Stefanovic’s girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough was glowing as she arrived at the Melbourne Cup Carnival last week.
Now Woman’s Day can reveal the reason for her happiness – the model and co-founder of shoe company Mara & Mine is believed to be pregnant.
The 33-year-old couldn’t hide what appeared to be a small baby bump as she posed in a black jumpsuit, before doing her best to cover it with her hand as she rushed through the crowd at the high-profile event.
Equally, Karl, 43, was clearly worried about their privacy and was overheard telling the beautiful blonde they should have shunned the public event “to stay at Crown [hotel]”.
The news the pair could be expecting comes as little surprise to anyone, including Karl’s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn. A family friend reveals Cass predicted weeks ago that Karl would reverse his vasectomy for Jasmine – which he did during a recent trip to LA – and that he’s desperate to “get her down the aisle”.
“Everyone knows Karl can’t stand being alone and he would do anything to make Jasmine happy,” tells the family friend. “There’s just one problem – Karl is done with kids. He’s said over the years he’s not great with babies and he’ll be in his 60s when they’re teenagers... it will be a difficult transition.” And it’s not just baby news the p pair are celebrating – another c close friend reveals they’re also i in wedding planning mode.
“There is some big news o on the horizon regarding a w wedding,” confides the source, a adding that the couple are “t “throwing around plans and id ideas” at the moment.
“Karl promised Jasmine’s p parents on a trip up to Brisbane ea earlier on that he would look af after their little girl for the rest of her life, and now he intends to make good on his word – sooner rather than later.”
‘Karl would do anything to make Jasmine happy’
Mum’s the word!
Ex-wife Cass is not surprised by the news. …and covered it protectively as she and Karl joined the crowd.
