Dido names her baby after Eminem song

Thursday December 29, 2011

Dido has named her son Stanley seemingly in tribute to the Eminem song that made her name.

The White Flag singer gave birth to her first child in July but didn't announce his name until it appeared on a Twitter post this Christmas.

Dido tweeted: "I wanted to wish you all a very happy Christmas. I'm ridiculously excited about Stanley's first Christmas this year!"

The 40-year-old singer made her name in the US after her song Thank You was featured on Eminem's hit single Stan, about a devoted fan who writes to him.

Stanley is her first child with husband Rohan Gavin, a writer who also directed a pop video for her two years ago.
