We were absolutely devastated when former loved-up couple, Emma and Lachy Wiggle, announced their separation. But we’re thrilled to hear that our favourite purple and yellow Wiggles have found love once again.
It was a marriage made in Wiggles paradise but it all came crashing down when Emma Watkins and Lachlan Gillespie split up leaving their fans in puddles of tears.
However, the beloved stars of the popular children’s band maintain that they still have a close friendship and Emma has reportedly said that she and the other Wiggles are really happy that Lachy has once again found love.
Lachy’s New Love
The new romance between Lachy and Australian Ballet senior artist Dana Stephensen supposedly ignited, when they met on set in December 2018.
Dana recently gushed with glee to The Daily Telegraph about her relationship with loveable Lachy.
“He’s just amazing and I just love him so much,” she declared.
Dana is a mum to four-year-old Jasper, who is just as enamoured with the Purple Wiggle as his mother. “Lachy is such a special person for him. He doesn’t tell the other kids at kindy that he’s a Wiggle, he’s just Lachy to him and they have the best fun together – he’s so great with kids and they make up the best games. Every day I am very grateful,” said Dana.

Dana describes the first time they met when she got selected to film with the Wiggles:
“I walked in and it felt like another world – it was an amazing experience in itself – but Lachy and I just had a really beautiful connection straight away. It was between us, but after the fact quite a few people noticed.”
Emma And Lachy Wiggle Are Happy To Be Divorced
Meanwhile Emma has admitted that to WHO that separating from her husband of two years was the best decision she ever made!
“We can work together and we are better than ever. We have done all of the highlights and lowlights and now we’re here! We appreciate each other so much more”
Emma’s Blossoming Romance
Emma is dating Oliver Brian, who plays the guitar and banjo for The Wiggles.
Emma spoke to Stellar magazine saying they had built up a close friendship after spending several years on the road together.
“[Oliver] is the very opposite to me. He’s a very calm and thoughtful person and I’ve always been interested in his mind and his take on life, and his morals. He loves talking about the environment and food production,” she said.
“It’s not very “Wiggly”, but it’s been nice for me to talk about things not just concerning ourselves, but people everywhere around the world.”
Deep down we secretly hoped Emma and Lachy Wiggle would find their way back together so the news of their new romances is a bit bittersweet for us. But we’re still happy for them of course.
