So one of my favorite sources for pregnancy related news and information, the UK Daily Mail had an “exclusive” article on singer Dido who many were wondering about after she declared being pregnant back in February this year.
The paper spoke with Dido and she revealed that she delivered a son who she named Stanley in July. It is the first child for her and her writer husband, Rohan Gavin. Unlike what most celebrities do, she didn’t bother tell the press or release any news of the pregnancy and has been living quietly in obscurity, the paper reports.
The Mail’s story focused on the how Dido first achieved cross-over appeal and mainstream success after rapper Eminem used part of the chorus from her song “Thank You” as the hook for his hit “Stan” about a crazed fan who sends a series of frantic and deranged letters and ends up committing a murder suicide when he doesn’t hear back quickly enough from his favorite artist Eminem.
The authors drew parallels because Dido’s son, who most likely has a family name, shares the name with the Eminem song character.
Okay sure, dudes! By the way, for those who don’t know, the term “stan”, has been adopted in pop culture to reference and overzealous fan. (e.g. Beyonce’s stans think she cannot do anything wrong and will defend her to the death)
Congrats to Dido and family. So lovely to hear she is doing well and living quietly in London.
For old time sake, enjoy this video of Thank You….
