Brody Dalle has two children by her husband Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme: Camille (born January 17, 2006) and Orrin (born August 12, 2011). Many of the songs on her Diploid Love
album, as well as its biologically inspired title, reflect the impact of motherhood on her life. Speaking with HMV.com
, Dalle explained the background to the album name. "A diploid cell is the cell that's around at the very beginning of a human, it comes from your mother and your father, it basically means human," she said. "I liked the word 'Diploid' and I don't think it's ever been used before."
