Are Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough engaged?
KARL Stefanovic has fuelled speculation he is engaged to girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough after he posted a photo of the shoe designer sporting a massive diamond ring.
In the photo, Yarbrough - who is wearing the sparkler on her engagement finger - is clearly in a celebratory mood, holding a champagne glass.
Stefanovic made no mention of any engagement, instead pointing to Yarbrough's 34th birthday.
"Happy birthday beauty @jasyarby", he wrote accompanied by various balloon and heart emojis.
However, a number of the TV star's fans zeroed in on the diamond ring.
"What an amazing rock! Close up please!!" one wrote.
Engagement rumours have surrounded the couple in recent weeks with several media reports suggesting the couple had "made a media deal" and would announce the possible nuptials in the coming weeks.
Rumours have circulated that Stefanovic "got down on one knee" and proposed to Yarbrough during her recent birthday celebrations.
The party, which ended with police being called by irate neighbours due to loud music, was attended by celebrity friends including rugby league star Sam Burgess and his wife Phoebe, who shared a photo to her Instagram with a group of girlfriends.
Yarbrough's sister Jade also took to social media, posting photos from the party, calling her sister by her nickname "Fizzel".
Stefanovic and Yarbrough met on a Sydney party boat in December, 2016, just months after the Today host split from his wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn.
"I've been through some personal stuff that's been difficult on everyone in my family," he said.
"That has been the hardest aspect: the increased public interest, or coverage, makes it more intense to navigate through. But it isn't a world event, it's not a national event, it's not a community event. I don't know where to place it. It confuses the hell out of me."
At the time, he told the magazine he and Yarbrough were "taking things really, really slowly".
"I certainly did not expect to meet someone five months after I broke up with my wife. That was not planned, I did not know her before. I met her on a boat in Sydney," he said.
While Stefanovic says they "have a really lovely relationship," he was determined to not share anything publicly.
"I don't think that's fair on anyone involved. It was unexpected and lovely, but we're going to try to keep a level of privacy to how we're going and what we're planning, especially considering I have three beautiful children who need to be taken into consideration," he said.
Stefanovic and Thorburn have three children, daughter Ava, and sons Jackson and River.
In a new interview with Woman's Day, Thorburn said it was her "second chance" to get the life she deserves and that she has "never felt more empowered".
