The Wiggles’ Emma and Lachy have split after two years of marriage.
On Friday, yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins and purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie announced the news of their split on Instagram.
In a statement, the couple have said that after six months of trail separation, they have decided to officially end their relationship.
“We have, and continue to share, the most beautiful life together, but we wanted to let you know that privately for the last six months we have been navigating through a trial separation, and we have made the decision to separate as a couple,” the pair said.
“Throughout that period, we have performed hundreds of shows together and that is always a continued source of joy for us both. We have embraced this as a very positive change in our relationship.
“Our incredible friendship has been strengthened throughout this time and what we have discovered is that, more than ever, first and foremost we love and adore performing as Emma and Lachy in The Wiggles and having the privilege of celebrating this happiness with extraordinary families around the world.”
Even though the couple have split, they have confirmed that they will still remain as the yellow and purple Wiggle.
“We have chosen a different path to travel in our personal lives, but please know that we are stronger than ever, and we can’t wait to see you at a show soon.
“We will not be commenting beyond this, and we thank you in advance for respecting our privacy.”
Watkins and Gillespie tied the knot back in April 2016 in Bowral. The couple first met back in 2010 when Emma was a part of Dorothy the Dinosaur DVD. She was playing Fairy Larissa while Lachy was Captain Feathersword.
