The 39-year-old singer and his wife Amelia Tank welcomed their baby girl Madison into the world this week, but shortly after revealing the happy news on Wednesday (17.04.24), the new dad had to head to Leeds as part of his ongoing tour with Take That.

In a video shared to Instagram, he said: "It's been an incredible few days, little Madison is here and we're just very, very over the moon and just full of love.

"I just wanted to jump on here and say that everyone who is coming to the Leeds show tonight for the Take That show, I am here, yes.

"I mean it was so horrible to say goodbye this morning to Madison and Amelia but the show must go on.

"I'm here tonight so I just wanted to send all my love to you guys and thank you for all your support and love. I really appreciate it. I can't believe I'm a dad."

The loved up couple - who got married in July 2023 having proposed the previous year - announced in December that Amelia was pregnant.

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' hitmaker recently revealed that once his baby was born, he would be taking some time off from music to focus on being a dad.

He told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column last month: "I still have goals I want to achieve but sometimes you have to step back and think, ‘What’s important?’ For me, that’s being there for Amelia.

“I have been with her every step during this pregnancy. I feel being present in my wife’s life while she’s having a baby is really important to me and her.”

Olly admitted he is excited for his baby to see him on stage in the weeks after the tot is born, as he's on tour with legendary boy band Take That.

He said: “We have got some stadium shows over the summer so I think Amelia will be coming along to them with the baby."
