Karl Stefanovic’s mother Jenny has penned a heartwarming birthday tribute to her eldest grandson Jackson, after recent claims emerged of a rift between the Today show host and his son.
Alongside a picture of her birthday card to the teen, doting gran Jenny wrote: “Happy 19th birthday Jackson. I hope you have a great day celebrating while overseas. I really hope the universe is able to get you see my/our wishes. Love you heaps Jackson Little nanny.”
Jenny appears to be very close with all three grandchildren, regularly posting images to social media.
It comes after The Sunday Telegraph sensationally claimed that Jackson would miss his father’s wedding, which is said to be taking place on December 8 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, while Karl’s two youngest children Ava, 13, and River, 11, would still attend.
It was previously alleged that Jackson skipped his father’s commitment ceremony to JasmineYarbrough earlier this year too, but the couple have never confirmed the claims.
The news outlet went on to claim that there will be a total of 60 guests at the ceremony, with Jasmine’s business partner Tamie Ingham and her sister Katie, Karl’s close friend James Packer and girlfriend Kylie Lim, and the star’s colleague Richard Wilkins and his other half Virginia Burmeister all thought to be invited.
While neither Karl nor Jasmine have publicly confirmed their wedding plans, they have been showing off their relationship more in the public eye recently. Over the weekend, the couple enjoyed a romantic walk together in the NSW town of Griffith and were snapped walking side by side along a walkway surrounded by blossom trees, forming a beautiful backdrop for the candid photo.
Sharing the snap on her Instagram page, Jasmine simply captioned it: “Always by my side.”
