It was an awkward moment, but things were about to get worse.

Karl then offered to look after little Harper-Rose if the couple do end up taking a vacation and he picked up the 14-month-old and put her on his lap.

Harper-Rose's response was savage. She burst into tears and screamed as Karl played up to the camera.

After just 15 seconds, Zoe retrieved her baby from Karl's hands and Harper-Rose's tears subsided.

Karl ended the hilarious segment by looking down the barrel of the camera and saying, "if you want me to look after your kids, you can contact me on ..."
