Karl Stefanovic’s son Jackson touches down at LAX with his dad and Jasmine Yarbrough

Rumours were rife that Karl Stefanovic’s eldest son Jackson would not attend his father’s wedding to Jasmine Yarbrough this month.

However, it looks as though the 19-year-old will be part of the Today show host’s special day after all. 

Jackson was spotted at LAX airport on Sunday along with his dad, Jasmine and other family members as they touched down in Los Angeles ahead of the fast-approaching nuptials.

It’s unclear how long the couple will be staying in Los Angeles before jetting off across the border to prepare for their lavish nuptials.

 Karl split from Jackson’s mother, and the Today show host’s wife-of-21-years Cassandra Thorburn in late 2016.

There was much speculation as to whether Jackson would attend his father’s wedding to his new bride.

Multiple reports suggested he wouldn’t attended the ceremony amid rumours of tension with his father following his parents’ divorce.

Rumours of animosity between father and son intensified in April when Jackson altered his Instagram name from ‘Jackson Stefanovic’ to ‘Jackson Thorburn’. 

Cassandra has previously claimed that Jackson struggled to deal with the news of her and Karl’s split.

In a tell-all interview with Woman’s Day in 2017, Cassandra described Karl as ‘dead to me’  but admitted their three children still had a relationship with their father.

Karl was quick to move on after his separation with Cassandra, and swiftly began dating shoe designer Jasmine, 34.

In February 2017, Karl was snapped kissing her aboard a Sydney Harbour cruise, which marked their romance becoming public for the first time.

 One year later, Jasmine was spotted with a diamond sparkler and the couple confirmed their engagement.

Announcing the news, Karl told the TheFix in February this year: ‘When Jasmine came into my life, I had no thoughts of new love or the future, but we are happy and grateful we found each other.

‘We are yet to work out when we will get married, but probably later this year. We are both very happy.’

In March, Karl and Jasmine exchanged vows in front of friends and family in an intimate commitment ceremony held at a $13million property in Sydney’s Palm Beach.

Next weekend will be Karl and Jasmine’s official big day, with the pair planning to tie the knot in a picturesque chapel at the One&Only Palmilla Resort, where they’ll also be staying.

The wedding will be a three-day affair, with the newlyweds sparing no expense.

They have booked two villas, one which costs approximately $11,600 per night, and another priced at around $15,000 per night.

It is set to be a star-studded occasion, with Karl’s brother Peter and his wife Sylvia Jeffreys reported to be in attendance.

Also thought to be on the guest list are billionaire James Packer and Karl’s Channel Nine colleague Richard Wilkins.
