Following the sad news that much loved Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins is quitting The Wiggles, many parents around NZ will have had to explain the exit to their Emma loving kids.

Emma is a favourite for many Wiggles fans, especially little girls. 

Gemma McCaw, who's husband Richie appeared on stage with The Wiggles during their recent NZ tour, paid tribute to "incredible" Emma in a heartfelt Instagram post.

"If you have a little wiggle fan in your household (or big… because parent’s love wiggles too!) then you would’ve heard today’s news that @emma_wiggle is leaving the @thewiggles! Emma has been an incredible role model for children (our daughter Charlotte idolises her) and while she will be missed, it’s bowtiful that she is pursuing her other passions. Thank you Emma for being such a kind person and bringing so much joy to our family 💛 Daddy wiggle is still waiting for his call up too 🖤"

Emma was quick to respond to Gem, commenting three yellow hearts under her post.

Well summed up, Gemma! We are so going to miss Emma too.
