Clues Jasmine Yarbrough and Karl Stefanovic are engaged?

They’re the notoriously secretive couple who are rumoured to have celebrated their engagement under the guise of a birthday party over the weekend.

And today, more clues have emerged to suggest that Karl Stevanovic, 43, and Jasmine Yarbrough, 34, are indeed betrothed.

While the twosome made every effort to keep Jasmine’s so-called birthday bash under wraps, a decorative light display in the shape of an ‘&’ symbol may have given the game away.

From a suspicious ‘&’ sign to THAT diamond ring: More clues have emerged to suggest that Karl Stevanovic, 43, and Jasmine Yarbrough, 34, are indeed betrothed

Did they drop the ball? While the twosome made every effort to keep Jasmine's so-called birthday bash under wraps, a decorative light display in the shape of an '&' symbol may have given the game away

The decorative light was spotted being wheeled into the party venue on Saturday, partially concealed beneath a white sheet. 

Onlookers also noticed a set of matching lights depicting the letters ‘J’ and ‘S’ being carted inside the party venue.  

Indeed, photos taken during the party and uploaded to social media show the word ‘JAS’ spelled out using these particular decorative lights – while the ‘&’ symbol was nowhere to be seen.

Fans can only wonder whether the word ‘KARL’ preceded the mysterious ‘&’ symbol.

Meanwhile, Jasmine left fans wondering whether she is engaged after she was seen posing at the party with a giant diamond sparkler on her engagement finger. 

At one point, Jasmine was seen hurriedly ripping off her ring and stashing it in her bag when faced with a photographer, a source told Daily Mail Australia. 

Forgot something? Hours before the party, an irate-looking Karl was seen scrambling across the street with no shoes on

It wouldn’t be the first time Karl and Jasmine used sneaky tactics to divert attention from their blossoming relationship. 

Last year, the Today Show co-host led photographers on a wild goose chase this week when a young blonde sitting next to him in the passenger seat of his car turned out not to be Jasmine – but rather Richard Wilkins’ son Christian. 

It’s believed the Sydney socialite was used by Karl as a decoy, so that Jasmine could leave Wilkins’ house without being followed.

‘We put two and two together when we realised Richard wasn’t even in the country at the moment,’ the photographer said. 

Meanwhile, Fairfax has claimed that the couple’s ‘wide circle of friends’ received text messages last week that featured a photo showing the pair kissing. 

In his weekly PS column, Anderw Hornery extrapolated that information to mean that Karl and Jasmine ‘for all intents and purposes’ had announced their engagement.

A report in Monday’s New Idea also claimed the pair celebrated the happy wedding news in private, with just close family and friends.

‘Sources’ told the publication that the ‘engaged’ couple threw a ‘nine-hour party’ at Peter Stefanovic’s Double Bay mansion in Sydney.

New Idea alleged that ‘well-wishers and partygoers were heard cheering, applauding and offering congratulations during the nine-hour party on January 20’.

Guests attending the party include rugby league star Sam Burgess and his wife Phoebe, Today’s Sylvia Jeffreys and Jasmine’s sister Jade.    

The lavish bash is said to have occurred after ‘Karl, 43, got down on bended knee on January 14, asking Jasmine to marry him in a romantic proposal, before returning to Australia on January 19’.

Karl split from his wife of 21 years, journalist Cassandra Thorburn, 46, in September 2016, before meeting Jasmine at a boat party just months later in December.

The former couple share three children together, daughter Ava, and sons Jackson and River. 

In May last year, Karl and Jasmine made their public debut as a couple at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

This past October, Karl gushed over his model-turned shoe designer girlfriend Jasmine, telling The Daily Telegraph: ‘There is a lot of love in my life. She’s a very strong and passionate person.’
