While it’s been rumoured for a while now that Karl Stefanovic and his wife Jasmine Yarbrough were expecting a baby, the news hadn’t officially been confirmed by the couple up until now.

At the end of last year Karl took to Instagram with a paparazzi shot of him getting out of the water at the beach joking about all of the rumours. But was this really confirmation? We weren’t so sure!

And so when Karl and his new Today Show co-host Allison Langdon joined the Kyle and Jackie O show this morning, we decided to get to the bottom of it.

As it turns out, the pair are expecting a bub! And Karl couldn’t be more exited about it.

“Karl, you guys are expecting a baby aren’t you? You and Jas?” Jackie asked this morning.


“Yeah,” Karl replied. “Very pumped! Very pumped.”

This news comes just over a year after Karl and Jasmine’s overseas wedding.

As for whether they’re expecting a boy or girl, Karl told us that they’re not going to be finding out the sex before the baby is born this time around.

“Are you going to find out the gender?” Jackie asked.


“Nup,” Karl answered, explaining that with their life so heavily in the spotlight, they looked forward to keeping something surprise.

“Well we have very few surprises in this life and there’s been so much of us that is public that the whole thing, we’ve been trying to hold onto ours,” he added.

Such exciting news! Congratulations to the happy couple.
