Olly Murs has got his plate full. Shortly after heading on tour around the UK supporting Take That, the singer announced his wife Amelia Murs had given birth to their first child, a daughter named Madison. 

The 'Dear Darlin' singer, 39, has been separated from his newborn, whose birth was announced last week, and in a new Instagram Story, Olly was seen making an emotional comment.

His bodybuilder wife Amelia has paid tribute to her husband as she looks after their daughter in his absence. Captioning a video of Olly on stage, the new mum wrote: "I've just been sat feeding our baby Madi and then we see this post. She doesn't even know she's got a super Daddy yet. We are both missing you very much but so proud of you @ollymurs."

When the 'Wrapped Up' singer took to the stage at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, Olly spoke for the first time aloud about his new bundle of joy. 

"I'm going to try and not get emotional. Little Madison is doing really well," he shared. "She's at home with my lovely wife and it's a real honour to be here. I wasn't going to leave you guys hanging tonight, I'll rush home to see the baby."
