The Wiggles’ Emma & Lachy announce their divorce

Just two years after getting married at a romantic ceremony in Bowral, Emma Watkins and Lachlan Gillespie from The Wiggles have announced their divorce. 

Yellow Wiggle Emma, 28, and Purple Wiggle Lachlan, 32, confirmed their sad split via a joint statement on the Wiggles Facebook page earlier today, saying:

‘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. 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.’

‘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. Lots of love, Emma and Lachy xx’

The couple sold their home in Wollstonecraft about 12 months ago, possibly around the time they decided to go their separate ways.

It’s the break-up we never saw coming and it’s heartbreaking news for parents and children alike.

We wish them both all the best, and hope they continue to make Wiggly magic on stages and screens for a long time to come.

Emma & Lachlan tied the knot in April 2016 at a stunning ceremony at Hopewood House in Bowral, NSW.

How will you explain the news to your children?
