But the affable entertainer says it’s been an easy process— and, surprisingly, their divorce brought them closer together. It’s definitely bizarre and not a normal situation but because we are playing music, dancing with each other and always interacting, it’s actually brought us closer together. We have done all of the highlights and lowlights and now we’re here!
We appreciate each other so much more”. We just get each other and we are so connected. You feel so protective about your body and you’re so in tune with it as a dancer, so the diagnosis really rocked me.
Former Wiggles couple Emma and Lachlan’s public love war
The couple, who first met five years ago while touring for the Dorothy the Dinosaur show then later with The Wiggles show as the Wiggly dancers, officially began dating two years ago, not long after they joined The Wiggles line-up. Nothing was more important to Emma and I than being in the new line-up of The Wiggles, focusing on the music and entertaining the children, so our relationship developed very slowly. I have always loved his kind, gentle nature. Being able to experience, together, this amazing time of becoming Wiggles has been the best thing to happen to me.
He makes me smile and I have never been happier. The pair have never officially announced to management they are dating — their chemistry was enough to alert the bosses at The Wiggles HQ that they were more than just work mates.
