It's a boy for Dido! And the name is....

This is the first child for Dido, and the name she chose is kind of curious...

It’s a Christmas baby for 40-year-old singer Dido! A boy!

And the name is…Stanley!

Stanley is the first child for Dido and her husband, writer Rohan Gavin. And he arrived yesterday, Christmas day.

As points out Baby Stanley shares the name of Dido’s hit song “Stan” with rapper Eminem, from way back in 2000 (feels like yesterday). 

The song is about a fan, “Stan,” who obsessively writes letters to his idol (Eminem) with hopes that he’ll get a reply back. But when he doesn’t get a reply back (in time), Stan kills his pregnant girlfriend and commits suicide…. Yikes!

Hmm…, so what do you think of the name now, Gorgeouses!?!

Congrats to the family!

Happy holidays (again!!),
