With his wedding to Jasmine Yarbrough said to be only weeks away, Karl Stefanovic is kicking his fitness routine up a gear, in a bid to do some final shredding for the wedding. 

However, that’s not the only reason why the 44-year-old is suddenly worried about his shape.

Posting to Instagram of himself lifting weights, the Today show host revealed that the health kick has come after doctors warned him to start making some changes for the sake of his health.


“I was told a little while ago by a doctor I needed to make some changes to my physical health. It’s been tough. I was fatter than I thought. Ha.” Karl wrote.

“But I’m getting there. Slowly. I want to thank @osher_gunsberg for the inspiration. And @emiliebrabonhames and @chiefbrabon for making me bleed. Its been really positive. For anyone out there I truly believe it’s never too late.”

His 34-year-old fiancé Jasmine seems to be on board with the health kick, as the pair have been spotted being active out and about.


They’ve been frequently spotted, taking walks around their local Mosman area and challenging each other to games of tennis.

It seems Jasmine is also encouraging him to eat healthily as Karl previously revealed that a snap of them reportedly looking ‘tense’ at a cafe recently was actually him upset because his other half wouldn’t let him have a muffin. 

But it seems things are looking up for the TV host, with his upcoming wedding rumoured to take place on December 8 at an exotic resort in Los Cabos, Mexico.
