Surprise! Dido gave birth to a baby boy in July, but kept the announcement quiet until now! Congrats!

Singer-songwriter Dido had a lot to celebrate this year! On Christmas Day, she celebrated her 40th birthday and her first holiday season with her baby boy, Stanley! The singer and her husband, Rohan Gavin, welcomed the little boy in July, according to The Daily Mail.

Does Stanley sound familiar? “Stan” is the name of the 2000 Eminem single that uses her hit “Thank You,” but it’s a strange choice considering the tragic subject of the song — the fictitious character in the song kills his girlfriend and unborn child before committing suicide!

But Dido is over the moon about her baby boy: “I’m ridiculously excited about stanley’s first christmas this year!” she wrote on Facebook. “Hope you all have a brilliant one and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in 2012.”

The singer announced her pregnancy on her website in February. “There’s a real calmness about it which I think is really nice,” she said in March about her pregnancy. “Your decisions are sort of made for you. You just have this priority that is unchangeable and I think that’s a great calmness that comes from that.”

Wow! We’re so happy for the couple, but do you think Stanley is an odd name choice considering the morbid lyrics of the song?
