The count­down to Karl Ste­fanovic and Jas­mine Yar­brough’s wed­ding is on. With just weeks un­til the cou­ple’s lav­ish nup­tials are set to take place in Mex­ico, pho­tos have emerged of the To­day host pre­par­ing for his big day. Drenched in sweat fol­low­ing a vig­or­ous work­out, Karl was clearly put­ting in the hard yards.

Sport­ing ac­tivewear, the 44-year-old pulled up his T-shirt to wipe his sweaty face as he cranked up the pace. It’s clear that he is on a health kick and is de­ter­mined to shed the last re­main­ing ki­los be­fore ty­ing the knot. The dad-of-three has been work­ing hard to get in shape for the Dec. 8 cer­e­mony, with

re­ports that Karl has been train­ing with Chief Brabon, the per­sonal trainer re­spon­si­ble for Osher Guns­berg’s stag­ger­ing 9kg weight loss ear­lier this year. Speak­ing to KIIS ra­dio hosts Jase and PJ re­cently, Karl ad­mit­ted that he’s been “shed­ding for the wed­ding”. “[I was pho­tographed] play­ing ten­nis the other day and I thought: ‘I’ve shed a bit of weight for the wed!’ Shed­ding for the wed­ding!” he joked. The star also ad­mit­ted some un­flat­ter­ing pho­tos of him play­ing ten­nis had also prompted him to get him­self into shape. “There were some bad shots of me. I looked at my­self and I thought: ‘That is un­flat­ter­ing’.’’ How­ever, it’s been a stress­ful cou­ple of weeks for Karl. Hav­ing fought off fierce spec­u­la­tion that he was go­ing to be dumped from the To­day pro­gram af­ter plum­met­ing rat­ings, he may have needed to find an out­let to de-stress. As a keen lover of “spaghetti, cheese and wine” to re­lax, Karl pre­vi­ously con­fessed his worst habit is “eat­ing too much”.

Ac­cord­ing to var­i­ous re­ports, the health-con­scious morn­ing show pre­sen­ter has even vis­ited a num­ber of weight-loss clin­ics in Syd­ney in a bid to slim down for his model wife-to-be.

And now with just weeks un­til the wed­ding, Karl is more de­ter­mined than ever to get in the best shape of his life be­fore his beach­side cer­e­mony.

Sources also say that Jas­mine has en­cour­aged Karl to get into shape be­fore their lav­ish nup­tials in Mex­ico – and her healthy habits cer­tainly ap­pear to be

rubbing off on him. It’s also be­lieved Jas­mine has Karl on a healthy regime be­cause she wants to have ba­bies. Keen for Karl to drop weight so he’s feel­ing his best when they add to their brood, the cou­ple took the next step by get­ting a dog.

“‘Both Karl and I have grown up with Ger­man Shep­herds and can’t wait to wel­come our new­est mem­ber of the fam­ily, Chance the Yap­per,” she spilled.

Fre­quently spot­ted run­ning or play­ing ten­nis with Jas­mine, 34, the TV star’s ac­tive fit­ness regime is likely to in­crease. Jas­mine re­cently re­vealed she starts ex­er­cis­ing at 8am each morn­ing. “I love walk­ing around the har­bour in Syd­ney,’ she told Grazia. “It’s a solid 45-minute walk to Bal­moral. Ev­ery other day I play ten­nis for an hour or do an F45 class.”

Jas­mine also prefers lighter meal op­tions, say­ing she has av­o­cado on toast for break­fast then a salad for lunch and snacks on olives through­out the day.

We’re sure her good habits will rub off on Karl!

The loved-up cou­ple are all smiles ahead of ty­ing the knot.

Karl ad­mits he eats too much, but is de­ter­mined to be trim and ter­rific for his much younger fi­ancee, and soon-to-be sec­ond wife, Jas­mine.

It’s no pain, no gain for the groomto-be.
