Sharing the happy news on Instagram, the much-loved Wiggle wrote: “On Thursday night, Dana asked me to marry her at home under a fairy light sky and a very excited little boy in a beautiful bow tie,” alongside a picture of himself, his new fiancée and her son, Jasper.
Lachy is not only celebrating his engagement, but the children’s performer will officially become stepdad to Dana's young son from a previous relationship. Dana told the Daily Telegraph in February that Jasper and Lachy have a really special connection.
“Lachy is such a special person for him. He doesn’t tell the other kids at kindy that he’s a Wiggle, he’s just Lachy to him and they have the best fun together – he’s so great with kids and they make up the best games,” she said.
Lachy, 34, was married to yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins before the pair split in 2018.
