Baby joy! Today host Karl Stefanovic and his wife Jasmine Yarbrough are hoping to have a second child

Today show host Karl Stefanovic and his wife, Jasmine Yarbrough, reportedly want to have a second child.

According to Woman’s Day, shoe designer Jasmine, 36, is eager for her seven-month-old daughter, Harper May, to have a brother or sister.

An insider told the magazine that Jasmine has been ‘desperate to get pregnant again’ ever since the birth of Harper.

They added: ‘She’s always wanted to have a brood and to give little Harper a playmate, and she wanted to do it as quickly as she could.’

Karl, 46, is said to want a girl, while Jasmine is eager to have a boy to ‘balance out’ the household.

In a telling clue they’re planning to grow their family, Jasmine has reportedly already submitted council paperwork to build an extension to their holiday home in Noosa.

A similar report in New Idea also outlined the couple’s baby plans, with a source saying Karl was actually hoping for a boy.

‘Karl would love nothing more than a brother for little Harper,’ an insider said.

‘He openly jokes with friends and colleagues, “Next one, next year is a boy.”‘

Reports surfaced in August that the couple were planning for another child.  

Jasmine and Karl welcomed little Harper on May 1 at Sydney’s North Shore Private Hospital.

In a statement to the Today show at the time, Karl said: ‘Harper and Jasmine are doing well and dad had a great night’s sleep.’

He added: ‘I am in awe. Harper is absolutely perfect.’

Karl met Jasmine in late 2016, just five months after he separated from his first wife, former journalist Cassandra Thorburn, to whom he was married for 21 years.

The couple wed in a lavish ceremony at the One&Only Palmilla resort in San José del Cabo, Mexico, in December 2018.
