Pop star Olly Murs has welcomed his first child with his wife Amelia, with the pair announcing the safe arrival of a baby girl.

You can say a lot of things about Olly – smooth dancer, pop sensation, Pringles tube – but no one could ever accuse him of not being committed to his fans.

While most wives wouldn’t let the father of their children out of their sight so soon after a baby’s arrival, Olly’s straight back to work – and fans can’t quite believe it.

Several people have been asking the First Direct Arena this afternoon who’ll be stepping in for the star, who is supporting Take That.

One person even questioned whether the venue had mistakenly shared an ‘automated post’ which still included Olly Murs on the line-up.

But he is indeed hitting the stage in Leeds in just a short while.

Just 48 hours after the birth of baby Madison, he’ll be back on stage performing at the First Direct Arena.

It’s the first of four nights at Leeds’ biggest venue, with Olly on stage in support of Take That on their mammoth UK tour.

Announcing the news of the birth of his first child, Olly and Amelia shared: “Our mini murs has arrived. Madison we love you so much already x.”

He also shared a sweet photo of the pair walking out of hospital with him carrying the tiny tot.

One fan has shared: “You are one of the best @ollymurs getting back up on that stage not long after welcoming your little girl into the world. It must have been so hard for you to leave them both so soon.”

Another wrote: “There’s no one quite like @ollymurs, what a crazy 48 hours and to be back on stage tonight, I can’t imagine how hard it has been for you. We appreciate and love you loads.”

Someone else said: “What an absolute star !! So much respect for him but I always have had !! Must of been so hard for him. Forever the true gent”

The First Direct Arena replied to a fan message: “Olly is due to perform as expected – and of course we wish him many congratulations!”
