The countdown is on for their big day next month.

And a new report claims Karl Stefanovic, 44, and Jasmine Yarbrough, 34, could have double the celebration when they tie the knot in just over two weeks.

An insider told New Idea on Monday that the smitten pair are considering adoption, nearly a decade after the Today show host reportedly had a vasectomy.

‘Of course Jas wants to have kids,’ the source revealed.

‘For years Jas has focused on starting her [Mara & Mine] business and now that’s going well, she is thinking more and more about being a mum especially because so many of her friends have little ones now.

The insider continued: ‘When the time comes, Jas will be a great mum, but for now they’re just taking it one step at a time and that means focusing on the wedding.’

In 2010, Karl, who shares three children with his ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn, reportedly told Woman’s Day he underwent a vasectomy.

‘I have had the snip now. So we’re definitely not having any more kids unless at some point we want to have it reversed – although I really can’t see that happening any time soon,’ he was quoted as saying.

That same year, he revealed on the Hamish and Andy show: ‘… My wife said there would be no more action unless I had [a vasectomy]’ but at the time said he cancelled the procedure.

He went on to reveal that after the destination wedding in Los Cabos, he and Jasmine will spend the remainder of their honeymoon back home. 

As their nuptials take place prior to Christmas, the newlyweds will head back to Queensland to visit with Karl’s mother Jenny over the holiday season. 

‘We’ve got to go see my mum up in Cairns, which is going to be hot, and we’ve got other family in Queensland, so we’re just going to be hanging around which is going to be so nice,’ he said.    

Karl and Jasmine will tie the knot in a picturesque chapel at the One&Only Palmilla Resort in the seaside town of San Jòse del Cabo, where they will also be staying.
