Dido reveals she gave birth to a baby boy -- back in July



rsz_tbd-dido122811.jpgBritish pop singer Dido had a surprise Christmas present for her stalwart fans, announcing on Twitter on Christmas Eve that she had given birth to a baby boy. It wasn't until later that even the most diehard follower realized that she gave birth back in July. Well, then she's had plenty of time to tell Santa Claus what the boy wanted.

"I wanted to wish you all a very happy christmas. I'm ridiculously excited about stanley's first christmas this year! :)" the now-40-year-old tweeted via @didoofficial (her birthday is Christmas Day). The Daily Mail confirmed she and husband Rohan Gavin celebrated the boy's birth at a London hospital this summer. Dido's last album, Safe Trip Home, came out in 2008, but she's promised Twitter fans more is coming in 2012, so Stanley isn't keeping her from working.

Most reports are focusing on two things: Dido's full name, which is Dido Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong, and the fact that Stanley may or may not be drawn from Eminem's 2000 song Stan, which is about a crazed fan of the rapper who kills his pregnant girlfriend, played by the singer, whose song Thank You is sampled and looped as the chorus. That is kinda weird, isn't it?
