Karl Stefanovic and wife Jasmine dote on their daughter Harper, but that doesn't mean Karl's older daughter Ava Willow gets left out of the family love.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Jasmine showed just how important the teen – who goes by Willow – is to their little blended family unit.
Posting a touching photo of Willow smiling at her little half-sister Harper as they played with the family dog in the yard, Jasmine wrote: "Loves her big Sissy soooo much 💗"

Proud dad Karl quickly responded to the snap of his daughters, commenting that his heart was melting at the sight of their sisterly bond.
Meanwhile 16-year-old Willow, who Karl shares with his first wife Cassandra Thorburn along with sons Jackson and River, left a string of heart emojis in the comments section on her step-mother's post.
Though Willow doesn't appear on Jasmine and Karl's social media pages as often as their daughter Harper , it's clear that she's a very important part of their growing family.

A source recently told Woman's Day that Karl shares a very special bond with the girls, something Jasmine is hugely respectful of.
"[Jasmine] realised Karl is so much better with daughters – he's very close to his eldest, Willow," the source said.
"Probably because both girls have their daddy wrapped around their little fingers!"

In October 2020 Karl shared a cute selfie taken by Willow to his Instagram, writing that she snapped it while out on a family "date night" with her dad and Jasmine.
He also paid tribute to his eldest daughter as she attended a school formal in June, captioning a stunning snap of the teen: "Proud daddy chops moment. What a beauty. What a person."
As for why she doesn't appear in his and Jasmine's Instagram photos more often… well, when was the last time you tried to convince a teenager to sit for a family picture? It's easier said than done.
Willow is, however, very active on her own social media page, sharing regular photos of her chic outfits and new venture into modelling after signing to Precision MGMT in December 2021.
"Willow knows who she is and what she wants, and those attributes make me extremely proud," Cassandra, Willow's mum, previously said.
Karl and Cassandra's relationship ended in 2016 just five months before he met Jasmine.
