Emma Watkins, better known as the beloved Yellow Wiggle, and (now ex-husband) Lachie Gillepsie have been North Shore dwellers for a while, first living together in Woollstonecraft before selling up – and now Emma’s moved in at Ryde!
Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins has landed in a new house in Ryde, nine months after her split from her Purple Wiggle husband, Lachie.
Her new pad set her back $1.3 million, which bought her a beautiful 1960s home with a soothing view of East Ryde’s luscious green bushland.
The green surrounds of the nearby bushland are made a part of the casual living feel, with vibrant shades of green visible through the homne’s large windows.
The house itself is set on a 1330sqm block with expansive grass and nestled beside a copse of towering trees.
The home boasts three bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a garden, including a rockery garden.
The couple had previously owned an apartment at Woollstonecraft before they split after two years of marriage.
Speaking on the ABC program Australian Story, Emma says the split was a difficult time for her- and The Wiggles.
“We both felt that the most important thing was the band,” she said, adding that at first even the other Wiggles didn’t know what had happened.
“I think people recognised that maybe dynamically things had changed between us but there weren’t any upset feelings. We were just trying to work out our friendship during that time.”
