He's the purple-skivvied Wiggle who's adored by millions of children around the world, but behind-the-scenes, superstar Lachlan Gillespie's greatest role is that of doting husband to-be to ballet dancer Dana Stephensen.
The pair's romance was first confirmed in August 2019, after they fell for one another on the set of a Wiggles' DVD special.
Opening up about their romance, mother-of-one Dana told the Daily Telegraph: "He's just amazing and I just love him so much."
The senior dancer for the Australian Ballet also revealed the two had an instant spark after meeting in December 2018 when Dana, was a guest ballet dancer on The Wiggles Big Ballet Day DVD special.
"Lachy and I just had a really beautiful connection straight away. It was between us, but after the fact quite a few people noticed," she said at the time.
And it's not just with Dana that Lachy has forged a beautiful bond - he is also extremely fond of Dana's young son Jasper.
In April 2020, the happy couple announced their engagement on Instagram with both Lachy and Dana proposing to each other on separate occasions.
"At the end of our summer holidays, I walked into the most beautiful surprise - a room filled with the most incredible flowers and Lachy singing at his piano and then asking me to marry him," Dana explained at the time.
"It was such a surprise and so special. Our faces say it all. It was something very meaningful for us to both have the opportunity to propose to one another, each in our own way," she added.

As for Dana, she kept her proposal simple and heartfelt.
"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," Lachy revealed.
Of course, it hasn't always been smooth sailing for the singer, who made headlines after announcing his separation from former bandmate Emma Watkins.
The pair were once considered the ultimate Wiggles' power couple, but just two years after tying the knot, they caused shockwaves when they announced their surprise split in August 2018.
Despite calling time on their marriage, the pair have vouched to remain friends as they continue to work together in the children's supergroup.
former Yellow Wiggle Emma has also followed ex-husband Lachy's lead by dating a costar, and getting married to her new man Oliver Brian, who plays the guitar and banjo for The Wiggles.
After keeping their pregnancy under wraps, Lachy and Dana announced the surprise news they had welcomed twin daughters called Lulu and Lottie in September 2020.
"Oh Lulu and Lottie, your mummy and daddy love you with all we have - you are both so beautiful - and I would love to sing to you both forever......... 🌈💜💜🌈," he wrote said.
