Emma said that despite endometriosis making it hard to conceive, she still sees motherhood in her future.  

‘I would actually have to try quite hard and I know with the endometriosis I probably wouldn’t be able to plan it out anyway,’ the children’s entertainer explained.

‘(However) I’ve got a lot of things I want to do first,’ Emma added.

While she did not address reports her ex-husband is in a new relationship, Emma told The Daily Telegraph that she supports whatever decision Lachy makes. 

The Daily Telegraph previously claimed that Lachy, 33, has ‘found love’ with ballerina Dana, who he is believed to have met on set of The Wiggles.

‘All The Wiggles members, including Emma, are really happy for Lachy,’ a source told the paper.   

The source added: ‘He and Emma remain good friends and both want the best for one another.’

It is currently unclear when Lachlan and Dana started ‘dating’, but they’re believed to have met in December when she filmed a music video with The Wiggles.

Taking to Instagram at the time, the 33-year-old brunette gushed over the group, while sharing pictures with both Lachlan and Emma.  

‘What an amazing group of people we had the pleasure of working with today, The Wiggles,’ she began in a lengthy caption.

‘I’m absolutely in awe of their talents and humbled by their kindness.

‘Also, can never thank them enough for giving me the best street cred going around the daycare scene – perhaps the only time in my life I’m going to be a cool mum.’

Dana was previously married to Melbourne photographer Michael Kai, with whom she has a four-year-old son with.  

Last August, Lachlan and Emma, who joined The Wiggles in 2013 and started dating weeks later, announced their shock split.

They previously wed in a lavish ceremony in Bowral, New South Wales in 2016, one year after becoming engaged.

Despite their break-up, Lachlan and Emma have vowed to remain friends and still perform together in The Wiggles.

‘To be able to realise as a couple that we were going different ways and to stay as close as we are is a real testament, I think, to both of us,’ Lachlan previously said in a statement.

‘I love her more now than anything and she loves me more than anything.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted The Wiggles and Dana for comment.
