Co-stars Lachy and Emma were married from 2016 to 2018, and they have publicly moved on with other people.
Lachy is engaged to ballerina Dana Stephensen, with whom he shares one-year-old twin girls Lulu and Lottie.
Emma is also engaged to her new beau, musician Oliver Brian, whom she knew for four years before he finally asked her out on a date.

These days Emma likes to keep her personal life private, but on the rare occasion she talks about her fiancé, she sounds totally in love.
"He's very opposite to me," Emma told Stellar of Oliver. "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.
"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."
