Lachlan and Dana also surprised everyone when they announced they were welcoming twins in September last year.

The Wiggles star wrote on Instagram: “Oh Lulu and Lottie, your mum and dad love you with everything we’ve got – you’re both so beautiful – and I’d love to sing to you both forever.”

Neither Lachlan nor Dana had given any indication that they were expecting a child, let alone twins, meaning fans were completely blown away by the news.
