A FATHER has stunned his family by naming his daughter after Lady Gaga.

Ian Clark joked with four-year-old stepdaughter Maddy that he would name her sister after her favourite pop princess.

But the father-of-three went ahead with his plan and named his daughter Meggie Maisie Lady Gaga.

She was born two weeks ago and Mr Clark went along to register the baby’s birth with his partner, Melanie Robinson.

Ms Robinson, 27, of Blyth, Northumberland, said: “Ian thought it was a really good idea, but I told him no way.

“The registrar asked three times if there was anything he wanted to change about the name, but he did not back down.

“It is still strange to look at the birth certificate now. Everybody keeps asking to have a look at it because they do not believe he went and did it.”
