We're calling it: Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough are definitely expecting a baby.

After getting married in a lavish three-day wedding extravaganza in Mexico last December, Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbough have been subject to countless rumours about their future baby plans.

From claims that former (and future) Today show host Stefanovic had undergone a “second vasectomy reversal surgery” to rumours that the couple have been trying for a baby, the tabloid stories have been endless.

But now it seems there may actually be some truth behind the rumours. (In fact, we’ll be pretty surprised if these rumours aren’t actually true.)

Watch Karl Stefanovic say goodbye to the Today Show. Post continues below.

Speaking on Perth radio show 6PR Breakfast with Millsy & Baz on Monday morning, entertainment reporter Peter Ford “confirmed” that the couple are expecting their first child together.

“We’ve got confirmation that Karl Stefanovic is becoming a dad, Jasmine is pregnant,” Ford claimed.

“They’ve had the baby shower on the weekend, which is kind of a giveaway sign,” he added.

“[Karl’s] about to make his big comeback, and now all the excitement of a new baby on the way. Good luck to them.”

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph on Monday, a “friend” of the couple also reportedly confirmed the news.

“Jas and Karl are over the moon. They are very happy,” the source claimed.

The publication also reported that Stefanovic has shared the news with his three children – Jackson, 19, Ava, 13, and River, 12 – and his ex-wife, Cassandra Thorburn.

The couple, who celebrated their first wedding anniversary over the weekend, haven’t yet confirmed or announced the news.

Over the weekend, however, photos were shared of Yarbrough cradling her stomach at an event in New York City that her friend had described as a ‘baby shower’.

"I love baby showers," one friend captioned a photo of the former model.

Another friend posted a photo of Jasmine at the same event, adding a baby emoji.

Either that or they're determined to convince us all that they've got one on the way. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Stefanovic announced his split from his wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn, in September 2016.

Just months later, Stefanovic met Yarbrough, a decade his junior, while onboard a luxury cruise ship in Sydney.

Since then, the couple have fielded many scandals along the way, starting from when the couple were forced to go public with their relationship in 2017 when they were pictured in Bora Bora on James Packer’s yacht.

At the time, Karl’s detractors thought he had moved on from his marriage too quickly, while ratings for the Today show struggled.

After that, there was the infamous Ubergate incident of March 2018, in which Karl and Peter Stefanovic were caught 'complaining' about his then co-host Georgie Gardner, as well as their Channel Nine bosses.

As a result, Stefanovic was controversially removed from the morning show just days after the couple's wedding.

Karl Stefanovic is the comeback kid. Seriously. The Mamamia Out Loud team discuss.

Last month, however, Stefanovic confirmed that he will return to the program in early 2020.

“Yes, I am as shocked about this as everyone else,” he said.

“It’s not something that I thought would come up again. I thought my time was up, but then, when I was sounded out about it, it got me thinking.

“It’s a big job with enormous pressures and I know only too well some of those pitfalls, but it is also without question the best live TV job in Australia.”

It's been speculated that Stefanovic might not address the pregnancy rumours until he returns to the show in January.

Only time will tell. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
