“He is a very calm and thoughtful person and I have always been interested in his mind and his outlook on life and his morals,” she explained.
‘He likes to talk about the environment and food production. It’s not very “Wiggly”, but it was fun for me to talk about things that didn’t just concern ourselves, but people all over the world. ‘
The couple took the next step in their relationship in April last year, with the couple reportedly living together amid the coronavirus blockage.
The news that the couple were living together came less than two weeks after Emma’s ex-husband, fellow Wiggles member Lachlan Gillespie, announced his engagement to dancer Dana Stephenson.
“ On Thursday evening, Dana asked me to marry her home under a fairytale, bright sky and a very excited little boy in a beautiful bow tie, ” 34-year-old purple Wiggle announced on Instagram on April 13.
Emma seemed to approve of their engagement, commenting on Lachy’s post with three purple hearts.
She also congratulated Lachy and his fiancé Dana on the birth of their twins that same month.
During the candid interview with Stellar, Emma also discussed Lachlan’s relationship with dancer Dana, a senior performer with The Australian Ballet.
After the dancer filmed scenes with The Wiggles last December, Watkins revealed that she told a friend that Dana and Lachlan would be “ perfect together. ”
In September, Emma and Oliver showed further signs that their relationship was getting more serious when they brought home a new puppy.
Oliver plays a variety of instruments on The Wiggles, including guitars and banjo, and has previously joined the band on several of their world tours.
In August 2018, Lachlan and Emma announced their split.
The former couple – who joined The Wiggles in 2013 and began dating weeks later – were married in Bowral, New South Wales, in 2016.
Despite their breakup, Lachlan and Emma have vowed to remain friends and still perform together in The Wiggles.
“To realize as a couple that we were going in different directions and staying as close as we are, I think is a real testament to both of us,” Lachlan said in a statement.
“I love her more than anything now and she loves me more than anything.”
