Olly Murs is planning to "step back" from music to focus on being a dad.

The 'Heart Skips a Beat' singer and his wife Amelia Tank are currently expecting their first child, and after the 39-year-old pop star's tour with Take That comes to an end in June, he is planning to take a break from his career to spend time with his growing family.

He told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: “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.”

While he's heading off on tour next month, the 'Kiss Me' singer is confident he'll be by the bodybuilder's side when she gives birth.

He said: "It’s a crazy time but we’ll get through it.

“My wife is outrageously pregnant, it is getting close.

“We had a scan today, which was amazing...

“Every few days on tour I get a day off, so if it happens, I can get back."

And Olly is excited for his baby to see him on stage in the weeks after the tot is born.

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

The former 'X Factor' presenter just hopes they can get their baby into a "good routine" quickly so they don't have too many sleepless nights.

He said: "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.”
