With a glow­ing Jas­mine sport­ing a no­tice­able bump, in­sid­ers say Karl’s de­ter­mined to get her down the aisle as soon as pos­si­ble

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Celebrity News -

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.
