Singer Olly Murs welcomes first child with wife

Olly Murs has announced the birth of his first child with his wife Amelia.

The 39-year-old singer published a photo on Instagram of the couple walking down the corridor of a hospital holding hands, with the singer carrying their newborn in a car seat.

He captioned the picture: "Our mini murs has arrived. Madison we love you so much already x."

The couple announced in December that they were expecting their first child.

The singer married 31-year-old Amelia, a bodybuilder, in a star-studded wedding - featuring a festival called Murs Fest - in July 2023 on Osea Island in Essex.

Murs proposed to Amelia on a south coast clifftop during the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday in 2022.

The singer shot to fame on The X Factor in 2009 and has since released seven albums, achieving four number-one singles in the UK.
