Midland's upcoming set of tour dates will be postponed due to undisclosed complications after the birth of singer Mark Wystrach and wife Ty Haney's daughter.

"We regretfully must postpone our upcoming tour due to a medical emergency following the birth of Mark and Ty’s baby," the band wrote in an update on Twitter on Friday (Nov. 29). "His daughter is expected to make a full recovery, but Mark is unable to be away from home until that happens. We are all incredibly saddened to delay the tour and and are working hard to reschedule for next year. Mark and Ty will share more info when they feel comfortable. Further information on the rescheduled dates and refund details if unable to attend will be released next week."

Big Machine U.K. released a similar statement on its social media accounts. The country trio was scheduled to perform in the U.K. and the Netherlands in early December, followed by several U.S. tour dates.

The couple announced they were expecting a baby girl back in July. They got married in October.

Friday night, they shared the family's first photos with their newborn, named Sundance "Sunny" Leon, along with a positive update on Instagram.

"Sundance ‘Sunny’ Leon came into this world with a bang! It’s been a wild and unexpected week in the hospital, but we are doing great!" they wrote. "So grateful for our amazing doctors and nurses who have taken the best care of us and to our friends and family for all the love, prayers and support! The power of love and positivity is a real thing! Lil Baby Sunny is strong, beautiful and an absolute joy! We’ve gotten a clean bill of health and we’re going home tomorrow."
