Karl and Jasmine: We’re adopting!

Inside the couple's baby joy.

They’re set to tie the knot next month in Mexico, but a wedding isn’t the only thing Karl Stefanovic and fiancee Jasmine Yarbrough are planning. The couple are also looking to start a family.

And if the pair’s recent Instagram posts are anything to go by, it could happen sooner rather than later.

“Every child deserves to have a loving home,” Jasmine, 34, captioned a snap in support of World Adoption Day last week, hinting that she and Karl, 44, could be looking into the process.

There’s no doubt adoption could certainly be on the cards for the pair with Karl having previously admitted to having undergone a vasectomy.

“I have had the snip now,” he revealed back in 2010.

At the time, Karl was married to his ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn with whom he shares three children – Jackson, Ava and River.

And despite reports Karl was considering having a vasectomy reversal in order to have children with Jasmine, New Idea understands the couple have discussed other options.

“Of course Jas wants to have kids,” a source reveals.

“For years Jas has focused on starting her business and now that’s going well, she is thinking more and more about being a mum especially because so many of her friends have little ones now.”

According to our source, while Jasmine is keen to have her own children with Karl, the Queensland native is a passionate advocate for adoption and thinks she and Karl would be able to give a child less fortunate a happy and healthy home.

“When the time comes, Jas will be a great mum, but for now they’re just taking it one step at a time and that means focusing on the wedding.”
