August 09 2018

They shocked everyone when they announced they had split, but now new details are emerging about the break-up of Lachlan Gillespie and Emma Watkins from The Wiggles.

Despite reports the split was amicable, WHO magazine has reported that Lachy is struggling to come to terms with the break-up. “Things hadn’t been right between Em and Lachy for a while but he really thought they could work through it,” an insider revealed to the magazine. “Lachy is devastated.”

Last week, two years after they wed, the couple announced their fairytale romance was over. “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,” Emma, 28, shared on Instagram on August 3.

⭐️ Lachy ⭐️ 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. 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. We have chosen a different path to travel in our personal lives, but please know that we are stronger than ever and we can't wait to see you at a show soon. We will not be commenting beyond this, and we thank you in advance for respecting our privacy. Lots of love, Emma and Lachy xx @lachy_wiggle

Fans have been saddened by the news, which came as a complete surprise. 

Just yesterday the couple were pictured together looking awkward during a photo call for a new Emma show they are working on with many parents hoping this might be a re-kindling of their romance.
