How Karl and Jasmine REALLY met: Mrs Stefanovic reveals the moment she first locked eyes with her future husband – but she thought they would ‘just be good friends’

Jasmine Yarbrough has spoken for the first time about how she met her husband Karl Stefanovic at a party in Sydney almost three years ago.

The 35-year-old shoe designer told Vogue Brides that she bumped into the Channel Nine star, 44, at a party in Sydney while visiting family in late 2016.

She had come back to Australia to visit family and friends, after spending seven years living in New York and Los Angeles without making a single trip home.

Jasmine didn’t expect to fall in love during what was supposed to be a brief holiday, but meeting Karl – who was then newly separated – changed all that.

‘Karl and I had met through friends over the Christmas period when I was back from Los Angeles visiting family in 2016,’ she said.

‘When we first met, I thought he was going to be such a good friend, because we just laughed all the time. He had me in fits of laughter all day!’

‘He’s the funnier one in the relationship, that’s for sure. He’s so quick-witted,’ the Mara & Mine co-founder added.

Karl eventually proposed to Jasmine a year after they were first introduced, popping the question while holidaying together on a private island in Fiji.

The couple married on December 8, 2018 at the five-star One&Only Palmilla Resort in San José del Cabo, Mexico.
