British boyband star Marvin Humes has been nominated for the U.K. title of Celebrity Dad of the Year, just a week after becoming a first-time father.

The JLS singer welcomed daughter Alaia-Mai with his wife, The Saturdays beauty Rochelle Humes, on 20 May (13) and he's already receiving high praise from organisers of the Premier Inn award for taking on his daddy duties.

Humes is shortlisted alongside the likes of retired soccer ace David Beckham, Australian singer-turned-reality Tv regular Peter Andre, Take That stars Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams, and Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish, who became fathers for a second time in January (13).

British comedian David Walliams and actors James Corden and James Buckley are also in the running for the prize.

The winner is set to be announced in the run up to Father's Day on 16 June (13).

Barlow took home the award last year (12).
