Dido ‘Too Curious’ to Wait to Find Out Sex of Baby

03/08/2011 at 09:00 AM ET

She’s due with her first child this summer, but Dido isn’t waiting for a delivery room surprise.

“I’m too curious,” the singer-songwriter, 39, told the Associated Press of finding out the sex of her baby. “It’s enough of a surprise on the day.”

Although Dido and husband Rohan are focusing much of their attention on their upcoming new addition, 2011 is shaping up to be a big year in other ways as well — her song ‘If I Rise’ from the film 127 Hours was nominated for an Academy Award, and a new album is almost completed.

“I’m nearly done,” explains Dido of the new record. “Music will just start coming out as this year goes on.”

In the meantime, the native Brit is finding it easier to relax with a baby on the way.

“There’s a real calmness about it which I think is really nice. Your decisions are sort of made for you,” she laughs. “You just have this priority that is unchangeable and I think that’s a great calmness that comes from that.”

I was the same way as her about finding out! In fact I paid for a private ultra sound 4 weeks earlier then what my doctor was going to give me for both kids! I wanted a boy first and got a boy, for the 2nd I wanted a girl badly and to my surprise got my little girl.

“You just have this priority that is unchangeable and I think that’s a great calmness that comes from that.” I think this is one of the best quotes I have ever heard about being preganant 🙂

Dido is 39???? She looks like she’s in her mid 20s!

I’m very happy for her. She’s incredibly talented and one of the best singers around.

And I’m so jealous that she looks much younger than her real age!
