Inside The Wiggles shock split

An insider reveals to WHO how Lachlan is really coping.

When Wiggles Princess Emma Watkins wed her Prince Charming Lachlan Gillespie, in a tartan-accented wedding at Hopewood House in the NSW’s Southern Highlands in April 2016, it was a blissful day for the show’s family and fans alike. 

Now, two years on, the couple announced their fairytale romance is 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,” Watkins, 28, shared on Instagram on August 3.

Despite reports the split was amicable, sources close to Gillespie say the 32-year-old 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 WHO. “Lachy is devastated.”
