While Karl and Jasmine Stefanovic always knew they wanted to be parents, the arrival of their first child together, daughter Harper May Stefanovic, was never guaranteed.

When the couple met on a boat in Sydney in 2016, Karl was already a father and had undergone a vasectomy.

The 48-year-old Today host shares three children with his former wife Cassandra Thorburn – but wanted to start a new family with his second wife Jasmine.

Karl says having a child with Jasmine was always a goal for the couple.

“We discussed it very early on in our relationship and I was very excited about the prospect of having a baby,” Karl recently told Daily Mail Australia.

He later had his vasectomy reversed and after trying for some time, the couple got their wish, as Harper May was welcomed into the world at Sydney’s Royal North Shore Private on May 1 2020.

“Harper and Jasmine are doing well and dad had a great night’s sleep. I am in awe. Harper is absolutely perfect,” Karl said in a statement announcing the happy news.

Just weeks before Jasmine gave birth, the popular Channel Nine personality explained his new daughter would be an expression of the love he has for his wife.

“We [he and Jasmine] do have a very loving relationship and to have a baby as an expression of that love is incredible. It’s never an easy thing and I think that kids are a miracle and we just can’t wait to meet this little girl. Just to shower her with all the love that we have.”

And it’s clear the new parents are doing just that, as well as sharing some gorgeous photos of their daughter with the world.

Jasmine shared a video to her Instagram to promote awareness of RSV. In what was believed to be a common cold worsened, Harper’s heart rate soared to nearly 200 beats per minute.

“We had never heard of #RSV until our two-year-old daughter Harper was hospitalised with the virus last winter,” Jasmine captioned the video.

Meanwhile in an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Jas confessed:

“It was alarming to see how hard she was working to breathe, with her little ribs sucking in and tummy pulling up into her chest,” she said.

“It was a long night as we sat in the hospital ward with Harper, trying to comfort her as a medical team worked to help her breathe.”

“Harper got her delicate hands from Poppy,” Karl joked.

This adorable picture was shared by Jasmine to tribute her “Valentines”.

Just when we thought Harper couldn’t get any cuter she donned her cossies and goggles for this adorable holiday snap and melted our hearts again. Just look at that little wave!

The Stefanovic clan is in Queensland, and it appears Karl had a more relaxing time than his brother Peter, who was lumped with babysitting his sons Oscar and Henry, as well as his niece Harper.

Karl cheekily posted the snap on Instagram and captioned it, “QUEENSLANDER @peter_stefanovic.”

His wife Jas wrote, “🙌🙌,” in the comment section.

While the rest of Australia froze through a cold snap, the Stefanovics jumped ship to find some sun, and Harper couldn’t be happier.

Jas took this snap of her two favourite people at the beach and wrote, “Escaped the cold 🥶 with these two ☀️🌴.”

Jasmine had a bonding moment with her daughter after Harper found her way into her makeup bag, and as excepted, chaos ensued.

The mother-of-one shared a picture of the concealer her toddler smeared on a seat, which she calmly captioned, “Turn my back for 1 minute!!!”

But Harper’s dalliances didn’t stop there. She encountered a pot of cream, and she smothered her face, hand, and clothes with the product. By the look on her face, Harper was a little overwhelmed.

“Ok, it’s just not our day!!! One toddler for sale,” joked Jasmine.

Once they cleaned the mess up, Jasmine sat down with a generous glass of wine.
