His rumoured new girlfriend was spotted jetting into Sydney yesterday, and now it’s been revealed that Karl Stefanovic is pulling out all the stops for her trip.
A source claims that the LA-based model is definitely in town to see the father-of-three, whose 21-year marriage to Cassandra Thorburn, 44, broke down last year.
What’s more, in a bid to keep their rendezvous under the radar, the Today host has rented a hideaway up on Sydney’s northern beaches, which comes complete with water views, the Daily Telegraph reports.
The woman who accompanied Jasmine at the airport is believed to be her sister, with the pair seen driving northwards.
Karl, 42, has reportedly been dating Jasmine, 33, since they met at a boat party in Sydney last December.
And he’s determined not to hide the relationship, claims Woman’s Day magazine.
“They’re hoping that once they declare they’re a couple, public interest will die down,” a source told the mag.
Karl was apparently “smitten” with the Brisbane-born babe from the moment he clapped eyes on her.
However, Jasmine was reportedly more cautious given the attention Karl’s split from Cas has attracted.
“There had been so many rumours about Karl dating multiple women since his marriage ended. But he told her his love life has been exaggerated,” a source told the magazine.
During his two month holiday over summer, Karl reportedly travelled to LA to spend quality time with the Mara & Mine shoe designer.
The couple kept it low-key by checking into hotels using pseudonyms and travelling to and from restaurants at different times to avoid drawing attention to themselves.
Karl’s now planning to take Jasmine as his plus-one to brother Peter and colleague Sylvia Jeffreys’ wedding, the mag claims, and even wants to introduce her to his children Jackson, 17, Ava, 11 and River 10.
Karl and Jasmine’s relationship news comes after Karl told The Daily Telegraph he really wants to work on being there for his three children.
“I… hope that I can rectify my failures as a dad,” Karl said, and try to “rebuild whatever has happened in the past.”
