Karl & Jas­mine

clucky and in baby train­ing

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

Wear­ing a huge smile, clucky Karl Ste­fanovic looked like he was rev­el­ling in a sec­ond chance at fa­ther­hood as he snug­gled up to his baby god­daugh­ter with Jas­mine Yar­brough just weeks be­fore their ru­moured wed­ding date.

The cou­ple were the pic­ture of hap­pi­ness as they hosted a birth­day party for Karl’s god­daugh­ter Olivia Mar­shall, whose fa­ther Steve is a close friend and works as a reporter on A Cur­rent Af­fair.

The Today star kissed and cud­dled lit­tle Olivia, hold­ing

her up in the air, much to the baby’s de­light as Jas­mine looked on lov­ingly.

Jas­mine then shared in the joy, nurs­ing the gor­geous baby girl while a be­sot­ted Karl gazed at the pair.

“Big night in with the god­daugh­ter,” Karl posted on In­sta­gram to mark the happy oc­ca­sion, which he and Jas­mine marked by host­ing a birth­day party for Olivia at their home in the swank Syd­ney sub­urb of Mos­man. “Happy 1st birth­day beau­ti­ful girl.”

Fans and friends were quick to spec­u­late that Karl and Jas­mine were prac­tis­ing their baby skills in prepa­ra­tion for wel­com­ing one of their own.

“Look out Karl, Jas­mine looks clucky! Do you re­ally dare to do the baby thing again? How brave are you?” said one, while an­other fol­lower teased them with the com­ment, “Get­ting in some prac­tice!”

‘Jas­mine re­ally, re­ally wants to be a mum’

Jas­mine, 32, has made no se­cret of the fact that she wants to start a fam­ily with Karl, who turns 44 this week. Last year he took the ex­tra­or­di­nary step of hav­ing his va­sec­tomy se­cretly re­versed at an LA hos­pi­tal.

As the love­birds con­tinue to build a life to­gether, preg­nancy ru­mours are never-end­ing, even forc­ing Karl to pub­licly deny Jas­mine was preg­nant ear­lier this year. That, how­ever, is set to change once the cou­ple fi­nally marry.

“They’ve talked about hav­ing chil­dren and I know Jas­mine re­ally, re­ally wants to be a mum, so we all ex­pect Karl will be a dad again,” shares one Nine source. “I don’t think they’re go­ing to rush into it, but it’s a given that it will hap­pen.”

Last week, Woman’s Day re­vealed the pair are in the fi­nal stages of plan­ning a des­ti­na­tion wed­ding. The nup­tials are tipped to be a three-day, celeb-filled ex­trav­a­ganza.

Jas­mine is yet to ex­pe­ri­ence be­ing a mum. With three kids of his own, Karl’s an old hand at baby-cud­dling.

Olivia loved par­ty­ing with her new play­mates.
