Rod Stewart reveals Kimberly Stewart’s daughter’s name: Delilah?


Rod Stewart has a new interview in today’s USA Today, and some people think that he’s revealed his grand-daughter’s name. His first grandchild – which Kimberly Stewart gave birth to on Sunday, with baby-daddy Benicio del Toro present and accounted for – is apparently named… Delilah? This revelation comes in the weirdest way – Rod is talking about how happy he is to be performing at Caesars Palace, and this happens:

…For starters, “I’m writing songs again, something I never thought I’d do,” he says. “I’m writing about divorce, about my childhood, all sorts of things. Why this gift has come back to me after lying dormant for 17 years, I don’t know. But it has.”

And “I’m a grandfather now,” he chirps, singing out the name Delilah, born Sunday to daughter Kimberly, 32 (whose mother is Alana Hamilton Stewart, one of his two exes). “I’ve been going around blabbing that for hours now.”

Rod also says that he’s managed to be “friends” with all eight of his kids (including 6-month-old Aiden, apparently), and that “We had everyone at the hospital to help Kimberly. I won’t say we always agree, but we get along.” Well, that’s not what I expected – I thought Rod was peeved or pissed about this situation with Kimbo and Benicio, but he sounds really happy. Perhaps he’s just excited to have a grandkid.

As for the name… I don’t hate it. Delilah is kind of cute, Biblical whore or not. Will she be Delilah del Toro (awesome) or Delilah Stewart (meh)?

    Delilah Del Toro is an epic name, with that moniker she’s going to have to be famous.

  2. Stacy W. says:

    Great name! Biblical or from Tom Jone’s song Delilah! Which I will now be singing all day.

  3. brin says:

    I love it….Delilah Del Toro (take THAT, Paz de la Huerta!).
    It’s more rockin kick-ass than stripperish.

  4. hairball says:

    My friend named her daughter that name and I love it.

  5. Miss says:


  6. lucy2 says:

    It’s a pretty sounding name (especially if it’s del Toro) but there was a strip club named Delilah’s in a neighboring town, and the name always makes me think of that.

    That first photo…Rod and wife #whatever look so odd together, it looks like one of those photoshop mistakes!

    I still can’t believe Benecio did…that.

  7. dorothy says:

    I wonder if the baby will take Del Toro as the last name?

  8. bluhare says:

    @stacyw: Me too!!!

    “why why why . . . Delilah . . .”

    I hate that song.

  9. Relli says:

    I have a feeling that all the ignoring of Benicio and his role in the birth of his daughter is becuase he is not with Kimbo nor did he want to make a “honest woman of her.” I think this was the product of a one night stand or a string of flings and he just isn’t interested in Kimbo as a person. I could Rod as her father being angered by this and the family trying to eliminate the Del Toro factor as much as possible as punishment. Which is too bad because that never ends well and lets face it Benicio is way more successful in his career than Kimbo ever has been or will be. But i bet she will be a total stage mom becuase i bet that kid is goign to be cute (two awkwards usually make a pretty, right?)

  10. brin says:

    @Relli….Rod may be upset for his daughter, but he did the same thing (he didn’t marry all of his kids’ mothers).

  11. Madisyn says:

    It could have been soo much worse than Delilah. I almost, kinda like it.

  12. danielle says:

    Cute name. I love the Tom Jones song! I want to hear it now…

  13. Relli says:

    @ brin, totally agree! but i find the people who shun the most are usually the biggest hypocrites!

    Just something about the way he worded about those present during the birth AND that in the original reports there was no mention of Benicio, his own rep had to make a separate statement stating that he was there… just seems like there is bad blood! Also i had a friend go through a similar situation(minus the fame) and despite the fact that the mother knew she was my buddy’s secret side piece she still used the baby to punish him for not wanting to be a family…

  14. Angelina says:

    With the Stewart clan being so tight and I imagine it was Rod that probably said to her to stay out of sight when she was pregnant. I wonder if Benicio will get a look in when it comes to his daughter

  15. lrm says:

    Delilah is a great name!
    Very normal too.

  16. brin says:

    @Relli….yeah, Benicio probably reminds Rod of himself. Radar is saying that Kimberly wants a relationship with Benicio, so I guess that’s not helping the situation (kinda feel bad for her).
    Sorry about your friend, that’s sad.

  17. serena says:

    I love that name, really. Hope it’s Delilah del Toro.

  18. Hautie says:

    Well you can say one thing for Rod. He likes his girls, tall. And does not care if they tower over him.

    I also like the name Delilah.

    At least the new baby gets to have a traditional name. And not strapped for life with some bizarro, jacked up spelled, name.

    Delilah del Torro. I like it!

  19. Ashley says:

    I immediately started hearing that ‘hey there Delilah’ song that was everywhere on the radio when I was in college. Now that’s going to be in my head all damn day.

  20. BELLA says:

    As long the baby takes after her….omg

  21. fabchick says:

    I love that name.

  22. Courtney says:

    Love The Name Delilah it’s one of the biblical names for girls you don’t hear very often like Rachel a name I personally fell in love with because of a movie

  23. zesty says:

    It automatically makes me think of sitting in my car, turning the radio on, hearing cheesy voices sing the theme of “Delilah…love someone tonight…” and then turning the channel.

  24. Roma says:

    @Hautie: Rod is so tiny by comparison everyone is tall! But I agree – he does go balls out and chases models.

  25. Rose says:

    If my child was conceived during a fling, I wouldn’t name her after a biblical whore. Just saying…

  26. TXCinderella says:

    I think Delilah is a very pretty name. Not common or one someone is likely to forget.

  27. ol cranky says:

    @relli & brin – funny Paul Stanley recently said (after the birth of baby girl #2) that daughter’s are G-d’s revenge, a payback for [his] past. My guess is that some guys don’t realize the damage their behavior does until some cad does it to their little girl (of course some guys don’t even care then).

  28. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I was considering Delilah before I found out both my babies were boys. However, I decided against it when I found out it means “loose woman,” aka whore.

    @lucy2, you’re in NJ right? Are you talking about Delilah’s Den in Philadelphia?That was my sis-in-laws former place of employment!

  29. jc126 says:

    I hate that name. I used to watch a kid by that name, though spelled “creatively”, and she was a weird, scary little kid.

  30. april says:

    Nice name and I love the song by the Plain White T’s “Hey, There Delilah.”

  31. brin says:

    @ol cranky….yep, it comes back around!

  32. Violet says:

    Rod’s current wife looks like a tranny. I wonder if she’s really tall or he’s really short?

    I can’t believe Rod has so many kids. And those eight are just the ones he acknowledges; rumor has it there are more.

  33. Camille says:

    Cute, I like it.

  34. texbrook says:

    Rod is wearing Grand-dad pants in that pic. He is so old and skinny.

  35. Rio says:

    I don’t think it matters what the name meant in Biblical times. Seriously, if your personality is determined by something as arbitrary as a name, you’d probably benefit from a good psychiatrist.

    Hell, I’m named after two Biblical chicks (one a friggin’ saint!) whom I share VERY few characteristics.

    As my friends and I used to joke in school, it all turns out the opposite anyway.”Charity”s are selfish bitches, “Chastity”s are sluts, and “Hope”s turn into suicidal Emo girls 😉

  36. Memphis says:

    Delilah isn’t a favorite, but I have to say Delilah Del Toro has a definite ring to it.

  37. MariPily says:

    My friend danced at Delilah’s Den! I’m from the NY/NJ area too, lol…

    I like Delilah del Toro…very romantic-sounding! Rod might have been upset while Kimberley was pregnant, but a lot of grandparents melt when they see their grandchild for the first time.

  38. lucy2 says:

    Yup, Delilah’s Den! I think there’s another Delilah’s…gentleman’s bar? in the area too, but I might be wrong.
    I forgot about the Delilah radio show!

  39. Dana M says:

    Del Toro, in Spanish, direct translation means “of the Bull” or belonging to the Bull.

    Still Sounds cool I suppose, even though the Spanish meaning.

    Delilah Of (The) Bull…..

  40. original kate says:

    kimberly stewart is really unfortunate looking.

  41. Bermuda Blues says:

    Battle of the August baby names…

    Delilah del Toro vs. Haven Warren?

    Delilah wins. Hands down.

  42. Meadowlark says:

    Question: Does Kim Stewart not look like Juliet Lewis and J. K. Rowling mixed together?
    Also, my last name is Stewart and I would disown my parents for the last name del Toro.

  43. vicky says:

    I’m old enought to have thought of the Tom Jones song but my mind went straight to the Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah”. Love the song and the name.

    Delilah Del Toro, beautiful.

    Relli “two awkwards usually make a pretty, right?” That’s funny but lets hope so.

  44. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @Mariphily @lucy2

    ***waves to my fellow “Jersey Girls”***

    yes! It’s now club Risqué I believe.

    @Rio, I don’t believe people THINK a Delilah will grow up to BE a whore, but that the name is so closely associated with the word whore that strip clubs and other places of “ill repute” are named
    in her honor. Not exactly what most mothers/fathers would want their daughter associated with.

  45. KLO says:

    Cool name! 😀
    I’m happy for the kid.

  46. John Wayne Lives says:

    Delilah is sweet. I too thought of the Plain White T’s song 🙂 That song came out when I was preggers with my last and my hubs was deployed. Oooh the love tears i cried lol.
    It’s a sweet loving name to me. I hope she has a sweet loving life.

  47. jackson says:

    I HAVE TO SAY i DON’T LIKE THE NAME DELILAH she will have benicios last name, Kimberly wants her to be famous. It is really funny that none of Rod Stewarts children have careers…Now his daughter is famous for having a baby with a actor after a fling…If i was him I would keep my mouth shut.

    Samson loved Delilah, she betrayed him, and, what is worse, she did it for money.

    Ring any bells like mother like daughter…i bet benicio didn’t have a say in it. He will never get rid of her now and will never get a nice women after this unless it is another slut.
