It's so lovely to meet so many families around the world The mothers used to watch it when they were little and now they're bringing their children. So that generational thing, I think that's why the Wiggles are so special. Did your romance blossom during the Wiggles?

Why did you originally hide your romance from the rest of the cast? We thought it was a respectful thing to do. There is nothing worse We didn't want people to think we were just doing it for [publicity]. We didn't officially say to anyone, but they knew.

We met on my first day at the Wiggles. Lachy was Captain Feathersword, so I originally knew him as a pirate. I thought he was really tall, and was even better-looking with an eye patch. I had no idea what to talk with him about, but I thought he was really cute and a great singer.
He and I ended up being good friends. I was in a relationship at the time and he was, too. The following year, Lachy moved from his role as Captain Feathersword and joined our supporting performers cast. I was so excited. We both became Wiggly dancers.

I remember our first kiss; it was while we were on tour in Melbourne. There's something about Melbourne that's quite lovely; it's arty and magical.
Since that tour, we really have spent almost every single day together. A lot of people ask me, "How do you do that? I can see him 24 hours a day and I don't get sick of him. Generally when we get to the shows, that's when we can be busy doing things apart. Lachy plays the piano while I go and do a ballet warm-up.

When we got there, he started reading a poem he'd written. I couldn't work out what was going on; he started saying all these beautiful things, then he started crying and descended on to his knee and said, "Emma Olivia Watkins, will you marry me? We will have to work the wedding around the tour. Because we do tour together all the time, the cast will be there. They've been a big part of us being together.
