With recently separated Today host Karl Stefanovic spending more time with food blogger Sofia Levin, the pair are clearly having a ball exploring their friendship.
‘They actually caught up every day that she was in town,’ confirms a source of the Melbourne-based writer’s recent visit to Sydney. ‘It took some juggling because they both had prior commitments, but they really wanted to use the opportunity to get to know each other better.’
Keen to maintain a low profile during Sofia’s visit, the pair travelled separately most of the time, being careful to leave venues alone in order to avoid anybody spotting them.
Meeting at trendy east Sydney wine bar Verde on Thursday, November 24, the couple opted for a secluded table at the back of the venue before spending their time together deep in conversation.
The following day, Sofia, 27, was seen relaxing at Sydney’s QT Bondi hotel with 42-year-old Karl.
The TV star’s brother Peter Stefanovic, 34 and his fiance Sylvia Jeffreys, 30, were even seen visiting Karl and Sofia at the hotel.
Although the pair spent Saturday apart, with Karl attending a Today show Christmas party at Richard Wilkins’ home and Sofia attending a friend’s wedding, they reunited on Sunday.
