Karl Stefanovic and wife Jasmine Yarbrough welcomed their first child together last month, and on Wednesday the first-time mum shared a brand new photo of beautiful baby Harper enjoying some quality time with her grandfather.

“Loving my Poppy cuddles,” the shoe designer captioned the adorable photo, which shows Harper sleeping soundly in what seems to be the lap of Jasmine’s father Bob Yarbrough.

Jasmine’s parents Bob and Cheryl are reported to have travelled from their home in Brisbane to Sydney before Harper was born, giving them time to self-isolate before meeting their new grandchild, due to strict coronavirus restrictions at the time.


Many of Jasmine’s followers commented on the sweet new snap, gushing over how beautiful Harper May is and urging the new parents and grandparents to enjoy every moment of this precious time.

“Bob, you would be enjoying every minute of it,” one person wrote. Another said: “Oh I want a cuddle! Poppy cuddles are the best. So happy for you both.”

While Jasmine’s sister-in-law Sylvia Jeffreys wrote: “Little angel!”

Last week Today show host Karl, who shares three children with ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn, shared another cute photograph of his newborn daughter as he joked that he had been demoted to the couch after giving up his spot in the bed for his mother-in-law.


The 45-year-old Channel Nine star shared the snap of Harper on Instagram, with new mum Jasmine Yarbrough and her mother Cheryl visible in the background. As adorable baby Harper snoozes in her crib, Karl’s fashion designer wife can be seen lying in bed next to her mother, with both women beaming.

“Reckon I’m on the couch tonight. Again,” Karl wrote alongside the image.
