Purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie's new girlfriend, Dana Stephensen, has always had a busy life - even before she landed a role on the children's hit show and fell for one of its stars.
In an unearthed interview with Daily Mail Australia in 2016, Dana revealed her hectic schedule as a professional ballerina made finding love difficult.
The 34-year-old dancer was first reported to be dating Lachlan, whom she met on the set of a music video in August, less than one year after he split from his ex-wife and Yellow Wiggle, Emma Watkins.
Dana said she started dancing when she was just three years old, and 'never looked back'.
'I've never had a moment where I didn't love it,' she said.

'From a young age I was basically dancing six days a week so it was an intense passion and I was supported incredibly by my family who weren't involved in the arts at all.'
Dana went on to say that she always knew she wanted to be a ballerina and moved from Brisbane to Melbourne when she was just 16-years-old to attend the Australian Ballet School.
'We work so hard and it is one of the busiest companies in the world as we are dancing six days a week, performing up to nine shows a week and everyday we are rehearsing the next ballet season as well,' she said.
She added: 'I had my fun in my early twenties and we have the opportunity to travel with our job which is really wonderful.'
