    Dua Lipa is one of the biggest popstars in the world at the moment - and people are wanting their kids to grow up to be like her.

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) in Britian has revealed that babies called Dua doubled in 2019 compared to 2017, when Dua first rose to fame.

    The ONS said 126 babies were called Dua in 2019, compared with 63 in 2017, so it's proving to be a name that's on the rise.

    Back in 2017, Dua had her first UK number one single with New Rules, and the name's been getting more popular ever since.

    126 babies being called Dua in 2019 is the most popular the name's ever been, so it's clear her stardom is having an influence on new parents.

    Dua's just released a remix album, Club Future Nostalgia, featuring the likes of Madonna, Missy Elliott, Gwen Stefani and more.
