Dido has given birth to a baby boy named Stanley. The 40-year-old singer revealed over the weekend that she and husband Rohan Gavin, a writer, had their baby in July. (Initial reports suggested that the baby was born yesterday. Dido herself was born on Christmas day.)

The singer – full name Dido Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong – posted Saturday on Facebook, "I'm ridiculously excited about Stanley's first Christmas this year!" She did not explain whether the couple named the baby in tribute to the 2001 Eminem song "Stan," which featured a sample of the singer's "Thank You." Dido famously appeared in the video to Eminem's song as "Stan"'s pregnant girlfriend. Her most recent studio album, Safe Trip Home, was released in 2008.
