"That means spending more time at home": How Emma Watkins' fiancé Oliver Brian is at the heart of her Wiggles exit

Inside their Wiggly romance.

By Maddison Leach
Emma Watkins, better known as the Yellow Wiggle, is all loved-up and engaged to fiancé Oliver Brian.
But now she's hanging up her yellow skivvy and leaving The Wiggles after years with the beloved kids' group and moving into a new chapter of her life - with Oliver at her side, of course.
"The time has come for me to pass the yellow skivvy on," she announced on Tuesday morning.
"Like many people around the world, the pandemic has given me time to reflect on what is important in life. For me, that means spending more time at home."

That means more time at home with her fiancé Oliver, wedding planning (we hope!) and enjoying some downtime after years of touring.
The sweet couple met behind the scenes of The Wiggles, Oliver working as a backup musician for The Wiggles, whilst Emma was one of the key members along with Anthony Field, Simon Pryce, and Lachlan Gillespie.
If that last name sounds familiar, it may be because Lachlan and Emma were actually married before she and Oliver got together.
The Yellow and Purple Wiggles dated in secret before announcing their relationship to the world in 2015, sharing the news they were engaged soon after.
In April 2016 they tied the knot in a romantic wedding ceremony, but their marriage lasted just two years before Emma and Lachlan called it quits in August 2018.
Fortunately, both went on to find love again. Emma fell for Oliver in 2019 and they too kept their relationship on the down-low at first.
That is, until Oliver popped the question in April this year and Emma said yes!
We're looking back on their romance to see how they got here, and what's in store next.
