Karl Stefanovic takes time for quick baby Harper chat before going live

Karl Stefanovic can not help but dote on his newborn daughter Harper May - even if he is not with her.

The Today Show host squeezed in a quick video call with the gorgeous six-week-old just before going to air on Monday morning.

"5 am FaceTime feeding call with this beauty. All you need is [love heart emoji]," the proud dad wrote alongside a happy picture he took while at the Nine HQ in Sydney.

In the snap, Harper could be seen on mum Jasmine Yarbrough's lap while she stared adoringly at the screen.

Good friend and Nova 96.9 radio host Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald commenting on the picture, "I'm having breakfast right now, can you FaceTime me?"

As she grows, Harper May’s parents are not hesitating to share a little bit of her life with social media and revealed the newborn had been spending time with her four-month-old cousin Oscar, who is the son of Karl's brother Peter Stefanovic and incoming Today Extra co-host Sylvia Jeffreys.

"I love my cousin," Jasmine said on a photo of Harper holding onto Oscar's hand as they played on the mat.

Jeffreys also shared the same snap to her Instagram Stories along with the GIF that read "Cousin's Day."

Karl and Jasmine welcomed Harper on May 1, and have not been shy from sharing the bundle of joy with friends, family, and dedicated followers.

"I know they call it the bubble in the first couple of weeks but Harper may the bubble continue," Karl said on the Today show after returning from a week-long paternity leave.

"She is so gorgeous — 2.9 kilos of just scrumptious delight. She's sleeping OK, three hours on, three hours off."

"Jasmine has just taken it in her stride, she is feeding really well. It makes me cry already,”

Karl went on to say.

Karl has three children from his previous marriage, Jackson, 20, Ava, 15 and River, 13.
