Emma Watkins (born 21 September 1989 in Sydney) is an Australian singer and actress, best known as the first female member of the children's group The Wiggles .

In May 2015, Gillespie and fellow Wiggles performer Emma Watkins announced their engagement.[8] They married on 9 April 2016 at Hopewood House in Bowral in New South Wales, Australia.[9].

"We have embraced this as a very positive change in our relationship. Our incredible friendship has been strengthened throughout this time and what we have discovered is that, more than ever, first and foremost we love and adore performing as Emma and Lachy in The Wiggles and having the privilege of celebrating this happiness with extraordinary families around the world."

"We have chosen a different path to travel in our personal lives, but please know that we are stronger than ever and we can't wait to see you at a show soon. We will not be commenting beyond this, and we thank you in advance for respecting our privacy," they concluded.

Their shock separation comes just weeks after Emma opened up to The Australian Women's Weekly about her battle with acute endometriosis, an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus, revealing her mother Kathryn was her secret weapon as she recovered from surgery for the illness.
