Lachy talks about why he and Wiggly wife Emma Watkins split - NZ Herald
"It's the secret they didn't want anyone to know," says one insider, who claims even Emma wasn't aware that Lachy had dated Brianne when. Lachy Gillespie has opened up about his shock split with Wiggle the Dorothy the Dinosaur show, and began dating about three years later. Emma Watkins and Lachlan (Lachy) Gillespie are best known as the yellow and purple Wiggles. The two began dating in , after Emma.
We didn't officially say to anyone, but they knew.
Friend speaks out on Wiggles' Emma and and Lachlan's shock split
When did you decide to announce to the public you were a couple? It was getting to the point where we were like, "we probably want to share it", though at the time I didn't know that Lachy had planned to propose, so So everyone was like: For us, it felt like quite a while. How is married life treating you? I feel that because we tour all the time, we're together all the time — and we didn't go on honeymoon — so it feels like it hasn't really changed much.
Do you have plans to start a family? It would be really nice … It really is almost like we have to put it in the tour schedule [laughs].
It is incredible that the Wiggles have been at the forefront in the children's entertainment industry for such a long time. Yes, because it's not normal to be even a band for that long. I think that's why Anthony [Field] is such a genius, because he does try and keep up with the times, whereas a lot of people get stuck and bogged down. The Wiggles have celebrated their 25 years in children's entertainment this year.
What have you learnt from being part of the Wiggles phenomenon? They are egocentric; they don't know they're there with that many people. So that's why so many of the songs are really direct By speaking as if speaking to one, then that's why they all connect.
I think that's a real skill. How have the Wiggles changed over the 25 years? Even going from just doing a CD to going on VHS, which sounds so ridiculous now, but it was such a big thing then. Then they were the first to do a DVD in children's entertainment Now it's iTunes, and only recently we signed with Netflix to countries.
Wiggles is aired all around the world. Where is the strangest place you guys have been recognised? I get a lot of recognition in the ladies' bathroom, and it sounds weird but it keeps happening to me … I think when you're waiting, a lot of people recognise because it's that moment that they stop and actually look at you.
What do you do in your downtime?

Are they getting back together? Emma Watkins hints at reconciliation with Lachlan Gillespie

So where do you guys see yourself in 10 years? Endometriosis can cause infertility in some women. Earlier this year, Emma revealed her battle with endometriosis - a painful condition that occurs when the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus grows outside of it.

Speaking about her health struggle with The Australian Women's Weekly two weeks ago, Emma claimed that she had been 'bleeding every day for over six months' before she told her bandmates she was in pain. She claimed at the time the operation 'went well'. Two months later she offered a more harrowing account of the surgery, telling News Corp: It seemed worse than I had thought, and worse than they thought as well.
On Friday it was revealed that Emma and Lachlan had already commenced a 'trial separation' at the time she underwent her surgery in April.
