No longer in custody battle. Since the death of Anna Nicole, DNA Tells it all. Like Larry Birkhead has been saying, he is the Daddy. Congradulations to Larry and Dannielynn.
Here is a " life time keepsake" gift for Baby and Daddy, in hopes some how, it will reach them.
Breaking news: The courts have ruled in favor of Larry Birkhead based on DNA evidence. Larry Birkhead is the biological father!
Amongst several men making paternity claims, including Howard K. Stern, Mark Hatten, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt and Smith's former bodyguard Alexander Denk, Larry Birkhead believes he is the father of Anna Nicole Smith's infant daughter, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern.
Smith claimed that her attorney and boyfriend Howard K. Stern is the father. When Anna Nicole Smith died on February 8, 2007, Birkhead filed an emergency order to get custody of the child, his attorney Debra Opri told CNN. Larry Birkhead has the support of Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, in his claim that he is the biological father of Smith's five-month-old daughter, Dannielynn.
Birkhead appeared before Judge Larry Seidlin to give testimony at the proceedings to adjudicate the remains of Smith, and was compelled to provide information about himself, including his income. He revealed that a year before the conception of Dannielynn, Smith had been pregnant with his baby and miscarried during the first few weeks of pregnancy.
