Addressing their decision to separate, Emma told Australian Story in 2018 that after she underwent surgery for acute endometriosis, the pair naturally drifted apart.

It was a mutual decision and we wanted to wait until the end of the year and then try and work out a way to make a statement to our fans," the Yellow Wiggle confessed.
