The romance is over for the Yellow and Purple Wiggles.

Emma Watkins and Lachy Gillespie, best known for their work in The Wiggles kids group, announced the end of their two-year marriage in a Facebook post to fans.

Emma, 28, and Lachlan, 32, shared that while they have been performing together, they were added that they were "navigating through a trial separation" for the past six months. And while they'll continue to perform together in The Wiggles, they have officially decided to choose "a different path to travel in [their] personal lives".

"Please know we are stronger than ever and can't wait to see you at a show soon," their shared statement concluded.

The couple first met in 2010 while touring as part of the Dorothy the Dinosaur show, and officially began dating in 2013, not long after officially joining The Wiggles's new line-up.
