Larry Birkhead Files Paternity Lawsuit for Anna Nicole Smith Baby


Larry Birkhead, the photojournalist claiming to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby daughter, has filed court documents in order to establish paternity & obtain legal custody of the baby Dannie Lynn Hope.

After learning that Smith’s longtime attorney & now semi-husband Howard K. Stern is also claiming to be the father of Anna Nicole’s child, Birkhead decided to launch a paternity battle in California.

Birkhead stated “There’s no doubt in my mind that I want to resolve this and that’s the only way it’s going to happen.”

Dannie Lynn Hope, or as some are reporting- Dannilynn Hope, was born September 7 in the Bahamas, just three days before Anna Nicole’s son Daniel Wayne Smith died of a lethal combination of prescription drugs.
