Former Savage Garden star Daniel Jones has married his sweetheart Kathleen De Leon in a private low-key ceremony at the Avica Resort on Australia’s Gold Coast. Kathleen is a member of the children’s singing group Hi-5 and the two met at Australia’s record industry awards more than five years ago. Kathleen compares her love for Daniel to that of Tom Cruise’s enthusiasm for Katie Holmes, "We’re so excited to be getting married … I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect man. I look at Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and go ‘that’s just how I feel’, but I just don’t put it out there [in public] like they do." Daniel also talks about his new wife with love, "She’s just a beautiful little person, we’re very happy." To find out more about Hi-5 in America, they have a dedicated site.

My niece and nephew love Hi-5. I think they’re on TLC. Their music is much better than the wiggles, to be sure🙂.

Kathleen isn’t a member of the US version of Hi-5. I guess the US & Austraila both have their own Hi-5’s.😀

Hi-5 has been around since 1998 and is originally an Australian concept. When they went global in 2002/2003 some countries dubbed the original or put subtitles on in their language while the USA decided to recreate their own Hi5 team.
So Kathleen, Nathan, Tim, Kellie and Charli as well as Ian Munro and Leone Carey work with the US team in Sydney for so many months of the year and they teach them the songs and they go through the segments and Americanise them.
Then the American team films on the Australian set. Then the Australian team films.

My DD has loved Hi5 since the womb (she’d react to their music when played to my stomach)
