SURPRISE! Purple Wiggle Lachy and fiancée welcome twin girls

Purple Wiggle Lachy Gillespie and his fiancée Dana Stephenson have welcomed twin baby girls into the world.

The much-loved children’s entertainer shared the exciting news on Instagram overnight.

“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,” Gillespie captioned a photo of the smitten parents cradling their new bundle of joys.


“Welcome to the world” he continued.

It comes after the couple, who met on the set of the Wiggles, announced their engagement in April.

“A room filled with the most incredible flowers and Lachy singing at his piano and then asking me to marry him. It was such a surprise and so special. Our faces say it all,” Stephenson wrote.

“It was something very meaningful for us to both have the opportunity to propose to one another, each in our own way,” she wrote.

“It was our time to ask Lachy our special question – and it was so, so wonderful.”

Lachy also shared the special news on his own Instagram account.

“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,” Gillespie wrote.

The 34-year-old was previously married to yellow wiggle Emma, however the couple, who remain good friends, called it quits after two years of marriage.

Emma has since taken to social media to congratulate the pair on the birth of their twins, commenting two purple love hearts on their birth announcement.
