1.The Wiggles’ Emma Watkins and Lachlan Gillespie were reportedly having marriage troubles ‘immediately after their wedding’.
Just over a week ago, The Wiggles couple Emma Watkins and Lachlan Gillespie announced their separation after two years of marriage.
The Yellow and Purple Wiggle released a statement on Instagram, sharing that they would continue to work together despite their split.
⭐️ Lachy ⭐️ 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 @lachy_wiggle
But according to a ‘source’ close to the couple, the pair had been having marriage troubles for a long time,
According to the ‘source’, “cracks started to appear” almost immediately following Emma and Lachy’s 2016 wedding.
“I think Em wanted the marriage for such a long time that it was always going to be hard to live up to the dream,” a friend of the couple reportedly told Woman’s Day.
“Ultimately, the fairy tale just didn’t match up with the reality.”
The source also claimed that working together on a busy schedule also took it’s toll.
Since announcing their split, the pair have stuck to their promise to continue to working together, appearing at Sydney’s Macquarie University side by side last week.
