‘He’s a very calm and thoughtful person and I’ve always been interested in his mind and his take on life, and his morals,’ she explained. 

‘He loves talking about the environment and food production. It’s not very “Wiggly”, but it’s been nice for me to talk about things not just concerning ourselves, but people everywhere around the world.’ 

The pair took the next step in their relationship in 2020, reportedly moving in together amid the coronavirus lockdown. 

In September, Emma and Oliver showed further signs their relationship was becoming more serious, as they brought home a new puppy.

News of the couple moving in together came less than two weeks after Emma’s ex-husband, fellow Wiggles member Lachlan Gillespie, 36, announced his engagement to dancer Dana Stephenson.

‘On Thursday night, Dana asked me to marry her at home under a fairy light sky and a very excited little boy in a beautiful bow tie,’ the purple Wiggle announced on Instagram on April 13.

Emma appeared to give their engagement her approval, commenting with three purple hearts on Lachy’s post.

She also congratulated Lachy and his fiancée Dana on the birth of their twins that same month. 

During her candid interview with Stellar, Emma discussed Lachlan’s relationship with dancer Dana, a senior artist at The Australian Ballet.

After the dancer filmed scenes with The Wiggles in December 2020, Emma revealed she told a friend that Dana and Lachlan would be ‘perfect together’.
