Three years after her marriage to Purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie ended, Emma Watkins has announced her engagement to fellow bandmate Oliver Brian.

Emma posted a picture to Instagram with her new fiance, who plays the banjo with The Wiggles, with the caption “when life gets more sparkly”.

Lachy, who has twin daughters with his ballerina fiancee Dana Stephensen, was one of the first to wish the happy couple well.

He posted a series of purple love hearts with the comment: “love you guys”.

Blue Wiggle Anthony also commented on the post, saying “sensational news! congratulations!!!”

Speaking to Stellar magazine in 2019, Emma said she had known Brian for four years before they went on their first date.

“He’s very opposite to me,” she said.

“He’s a very calm and thoughtful person and I’ve always been interested in his mind and his take on life, and his morals.

“He loves talking about the environment and food production. It’s not very ‘Wiggly’, but it’s been nice for me to talk about things not just concerning ourselves, but people everywhere around the world.”
