Jasmine Yarbrough has proudly showed off her burgeoning baby bump publicly for the first time, in a brand-new campaign alongside husband Karl Stefanovic.
The pair are two of the high profile faces supporting Australian fashion label Camilla and Marc's Power and Solidarity initiative, which aims to raise funds and awareness for ovarian cancer research.
The designers behind the brand, brother-sister duo Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman, lost their mother to the disease as children, 26 years ago.
Jasmine and Karl have joined other celebs, including TV personalities Jessica Rowe, Peter Overton and Natarsha Belling, in lending their high profiles to Camilla and Marc's #OvariesTalkAboutThem campaign, which encourages Aussies to purchase one of the brand's $140 t-shirts, with all profits donated towards ovarian cancer research.
The loved-up pair look happy and relaxed in the black and white campaign photoshoot, with Jasmine pictured resting her hand (and her rumoured $100,000 diamond engagement ring) on her growing baby bump.

"If this campaign means that we could help one woman detect this early, if we could just save one life, this will all be worth it," Jasmine wrote on Instagram on Monday afternoon, alongside the photo.
"The devastating impact this disease has is generational - for daughters, mothers, sisters and wives and not forgetting the sons, fathers, brothers and husbands that experience the loss of a loved one too soon."
"We hope that we can drive enough awareness, research and funding to find a cure or at the very least find a way to detect this disease early. If this test becomes a reality sooner rather than later, our daughters won't have to face the same dire statistics that we currently face today."
Jasmine's post was met with dozens of well-wishes from fans congratulating her on her pregnancy.
"Great post! Congratulations to both of you! Looking so happy & all the best with your pregnancy! X," one fan wrote, while another said, "Yay! Baby soon 😍 congratulations for both of you! 💖💖💖".
"Huge love to you Jasmine, thank you for joining us on his journey. Love this picture of you and @karlstefanovic_," read a comment from the official Camilla and Marc account, signed off from the designers themselves: "Much love CFT and MPF xo".

Last week, Jasmine opened up publicly for the first time about her pregnancy, as she enters her final trimester.
The 35-year-old shoe designer says she's had a "great pregnancy" so far and has been looking to her friends for advice on motherhood.
"Yeah I'm good, going well. It's been a great pregnancy," Jasmine told The Daily Telegraph last week.
And she revealed exactly what she's been craving for the past few months, plus her and Karl's thoughts on possible baby names.
"[I'm craving] ice cream, all kinds of ice cream. We've got a few names but I think we've got to meet the baby first," she said.
The Mara & Mine co-founder says she has also been staying active.
"I'm walking the dog and doing yoga. Just keeping it light," she said.
She is due in May, but is remaining relaxed about her impending birth, thanks to her reassuring friends.
"All my friends have had great stories so I'm going in with a positive outlook," she said.

While speculation was building for months at the end of 2019 that Jasmine was pregnant, the pair chose not to make an official pregnancy announcement - and this is the first time Jasmine has spoken publicly about the news herself.
In fact it was only a few weeks ago that Jasmine first showed off her baby bump on Instagram, when she uploaded a sweet selfie to her stories.
Last month, Today Show host Karl, 45, opened up about becoming a father for the fourth time and he also gushed about his gorgeous wife, revealing that she has taken to pregnancy like a duck to water.
"She is glowing, she's happy and we're all very happy," Karl said.

Karl explained the couple are choosing not to find out the sex of their child until the birth.
"We have very few surprises in this life, and there's been so much of us that is public. (During) the whole thing, we've been trying to hold on to ours," he said.
Karl added: "I think pregnancy is one of those things that is really boring!"
The couple first met on a boat in Sydney in 2016, just months after he split from his wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn.
Karl has three children with his ex-wife Cass - Jackson, 20, Ava, 14, and River, 13 - and underwent a vasectomy reversal in order to father his fourth child.
