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.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
