Lachlan Gillespie AKA 'The Purple Wiggle' has shocked his Instagram fans with the announcement of the arrival of his twin daughters.

Lachlan and his fiance Dana Stephensen kept the pregnancy a secret from the public for 9 months until now!

"Oh Lulu and Lottie, your Mummy and Daddy love you with all we have - you are both so beautiful - and I would love to sing to you both forever... 🌈💜💜🌈"

Lachy used to be married to his co star Emma the 'Yellow Wiggle'. They split last year and Dana and Lachie got engaged back in April!

Initially, Lachy popped the question - but Dana wanted to have her son involved in the process, so she turned him down only to ask him the question with her son by her side!

"At the end of our summer holidays, I walked into the most beautiful surprise - a room filled with the most incredible flowers and Lachy singing at his piano and then asking me to marry him. It was such a surprise and so special." she said on Instagram.

"It was something very meaningful for us to both have the opportunity to propose to one another, each in our own way. Last week, with the most beautiful (and excited!) little boy by my side in a special bow tie, it was our time to ask Lachy our special question - and it was so, so wonderful."

We're so happy for these two - such exciting news that their new family is growing!
