“Wiggles” stars Emma Watkins and Lachlan Gillespie are calling it quits after two years of marriage.
On Thursday, the pair announced the split news on Facebook, 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,” the statement continued. “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.”
While they have picked a “different path to travel in our personal lives,” they acknowledged that they are “stronger than ever.”
Emma and Lachlan started dating in 2013 and tied the knot three years later.
