In the closing moments of the program, co-host Allison Langdon revealed she had arranged a surprise for Karl, 46, and newsreader Alex Cullen.
‘I’ve actually got a bit of an early present for you both. Have a look,’ Allison, 41, said.

Jasmine, a 36-year-old former model turned shoe designer, could be heard saying in the background: ‘Happy Father’s Day, daddy.’
‘That’s so cute,’ a delighted Karl said in the studio. ‘She’s a beauty, isn’t she?’
He also couldn’t resist making a joke about the ‘revealing bra’ his wife was wearing in the video, which was recorded at the couple’s Sydney home.
