The shared images showed Olly looking adoringly at Madi while relaxing on the couch, a selfie with her resting on his shoulder, a sweet moment cradling her, and an endearing photo of a baby grow that reads "I love my daddy lots and lots."

Fans poured in their affection for Olly's sincere post, with one fan commenting, as reported by OK!: "Happy Fathers Day to you, Olly". Another added a touch of humour, saying: "Imagine going to school and saying Olly Murs If your dad".

A third fan praised: "She's a lucky girl to have you as her daddy. I'm just going to rub the sleepy dust out of my eyes xx". Whilst someone else added: "Not every girl has a Dad who is capable of loving like he should, making those that do even more special. I hope you and Madison have the most special years ahead."

In addition to his impending fatherhood, Olly is also hitting the road with Take That for a 41-date tour that commenced on April 13. Despite the demanding schedule, Olly and Amelia have a plan in place, reported the Mirror.

"Every few days on tour I get a day off, so if it happens, I can get back. We have got some stadium shows over the summer so I think Amelia will be coming along to them with the baby," Olly shared with The Sun before his daughter arrived.

The pop star, who first found fame on The X Factor, is fully embracing the prospect of being a dad: "We are so ready to have children now and ultimately, it all came naturally and it was beautiful. I am hoping we have a baby who will sleep. Everyone has said to me, 'Just get into a good routine."
