In a statement given through the Channel Nine social media channels, Karl shared his daughters beautiful name, Harper May Stefanovic.
“Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough have welcomed the arrival of a beautiful baby girl! The couple have named their daughter Harper May Stefanovic. Karl told @thetodayshow. ‘Harper and Jasmine are doing well and dad had a great night’s sleep. I am in awe. Harper is absolutely perfect,'” the statement read.
Karl’s longtime friend and colleague Richard Wilkins gave a shout out to the happy couple on the Weekend Today Show.
“We just have received word from our wonderful friend and colleague Karl Stefanovic that he and his wife Jasmine have welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Harper May. She was born just after midday yesterday. We send them all out love. To Karl and Jas, you guys are going to love this special time in your life,” Richard said.
Harper is Karl’s fourth child, who also shares his three children Jackson, 20, Ava, 14 and River, 12, with his ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn. It is the first child for 36 year old Jasmine.
Karl and Jasmine first met on a boat in Sydney in 2016, just months after he split from his wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn.
“When we first met, I thought he was going to be such a good friend, because we just laughed all the time. He had me in fits of laughter all day!” Jasmine said to Vogue Brides magazine in 2019.
“I certainly did not expect to meet someone five months after I broke up with my wife,” Karl said to Stellar magazine shortly after.
The couple tied the knot in a beautiful wedding ceremony at the One&Only Palmilla resort in San José del Cabo, Mexico, with 200 friends and family in December 2018.
“It’s a dream come true for them and in particular Jasmine, who had her heart set on having a little girl, especially given Karl already has two boys, Jackson and River, from his relationship with his ex-wife Cass,” a source close to the couple has revealed.
Harper also has a little playmate in cousin Oscar Stefanovic, who is the first child of Karl’s brother Peter Stefanovic and wife Sylvia Jeffreys who was born in February this year.
Congratulations Karl and Jasmine! Harper is just divine!
