Many Wiggles fans know about Emma Watkins and Lachlan Gillespie being a married couple, but did you know there’s another loved-up pair from the children’s entertainment group?

Red wiggle Simon Pryce is married to fitness enthusiast Lauren Hannaford, who just happens to be the woman behind the Dorothy the Dinosaur character.

Simon and Lauren got married just last year after meeting on a Wiggles tour back in 2011. And after spending so much time with kids as part of their jobs, they are now looking forward to starting a family of their own.

“It’s definitely something we always talk about,” Lauren tells Be. “That would be amazing to have a family together.

“We were talking about it for a long time before we even got engaged.”

It was back in 2011 when Lauren and Simon met for the first time, and their initial meeting makes for a rather sweet story.

Elite gymnast Lauren was training blue Wiggle Anthony in gymnastics, and it didn’t take long for Simon to notice her and ask if he could join in on the training.

After some time as a backup dancer for the group and then playing Wags the Dog, Laura scored the gig of playing Dorothy the Dinosaur.

“It does get really hot in there,” Lauren laughs about the costume. “It’s a total workout.”

Speaking of working out, the pair joined forces this week to demonstrate their impressive athletic abilities on Channel Nine’s Ninja Warrior.

And their love for fitness doesn’t stop there.

When Simon isn’t away touring with the Wiggles, he’s supporting his wife as she continues expanding her online fitness program called FHIT.

And frankly, that’s the pair’s main focus for now, before they finally decide to settle down with a family.

“I think we’ve got our little cute baby that we have been working on hard together,” explains Lauren. “And that’s where our focus is at the moment.”
