Karl Stefanovic‘s daughter is all grown up!

Ava Willow, who goes by Willow, is currently in the Gold Coast celebrating Schoolies; an Australian tradition where high school graduates take a holiday – usually to the Gold Coast – to commemorate the end of Year 12 final exams.

Taking to Instagram, Willow shared a snap of her friends smiling and proudly wearing their Schoolies lanyards.

Karl has four children total, three with his first wife, Cassandra Thorburn and one with his current wife, Jasmine Yarbrough.

Karl and Cassandra share Jackson, 22, Willow, 17, and River, 16, while Karl and Jasmine share Harper, 2.

Karl regularly features Harper on his Instagram but he does also post about his other children from time to time as well.

Most recently, Karl shared a few pictures of him with Willow before she headed off to her Year 12 formal.

Karl is jokingly crying in one of the photos poking fun at the fact that he’s clearly saddened, like all dads, by his child growing up. We wonder if he’ll comment or post about Willow’s participation in Schoolies…

In the past, Karl has had a rocky relationship with his children from his first marriage.

When he was in the thick of divorcing Cassandra, Karl’s eldest child, Jackson revealed to Woman’s Day that he wasn’t happy about how it all played out.

“What’s done is done,” he said. “Despite what happened, he’s still my dad. I’ll leave it there for now — who knows what happens next,” said the then 19-year-old.

“To watch my parents’ private lives play out so publicly was incredibly destructive for all of us – someone had to step up and protect her, and I knew that person was me.”

There were no signs of Karl’s sons when he wed Jasmine in 2018 but Willow was later revealed to have attended and now seems to have the strongest bond with her dad.

She also has a great relationship with her step-mum, and when Karl posted a picture of his eldest girl holding his youngest, he wrote, “Lil’ Harper feels she’s ready to go clubbing with her big sis @willowstefanovic.”

If that’s the case, we bet Harper will be jealous that she didn’t get to go to Schoolies with Willow!
