WATCH: Larry Birkhead's 'Douchebag Moment'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
On September 7, 2006, Anna Nicole Smith gave birth to a daughter she named Dannielynn. Though Smith named her former lawyer Howard K. Stern as Dannielynn's father on the birth certificate, Smith's ex Larry Birkhead firmly believed he was actually the child's biological dad. After Birkhead filed a lawsuit a month after Dannielynn's birth (and four months before Smith's death), an April 2007 paternity test revealed that Birkhead was indeed Dannielynn's father. Elated, Birkhead made a statement on the steps outside of the courthouse the day the news broke. "I hate to be the one that told you this, but, I told you so!" he had said back then, raising his arms in triumph. "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" recently caught up with Birkhead, who says he looks back on that life-changing moment with some embarrassment. "When they had given me the results of the paternity test, I call that my 'douchebag moment,'" Birkhead says in the above video. "I hope I can say that on TV…" ...

Anna Nicole Smith's Daughter Could Finally See A Huge Inheritance
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Anna Nicole Smith famously died amid a lengthy battle over ex-husband J. Howard Marshall's estate -- valued in the ballpark of $500 million to $1 billion. But that doesn't mean her 6-year-old daughter Dannielynn Birkhead -- from her relationship with Larry Birkhead -- won't see a final payout. TMZ reports that a California judge ruled Wednesday that Dannielynn is "entitled to sanctions against Marshall's family" -- an amount the website estimates as up to $49 million -- despite a 2011 Supreme Court ruling against her estate that overturned a previous $475 million award. In 1994, the former Playboy playmate and Guess model married business mogul Marshall, 62 years her senior, when she was age 26; he died in 1995. In a series of tragic events, Smith's 20-year-old son Daniel died in 2006 from a drug overdose. Smith died of a prescription drug overdose in the Bahamas five months later. A film version of her life, directed by "American Psycho" helmer Mary Harron and star ...

How Much Is Dannielynn Birkhead Making For Her Guess Campaign?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
The 6-year-old daughter of Anne Nicole Smith is following in her mother's modeling footsteps, making her debut as a "Guess Kids Girl." Her dad believes the project will pay tribute to her late mom, and bring the family a little extra cash. “The Guess kids Spring 2013 ads feature both Dannielynn and Babyface's daughter Peyton Edmonds, and are set to debut in January,” one fashion insider tells The Huffington Post. “Both kids got paid the same, favored-nations deal and earned $10,000 each.” The two children star in both print and broadcast commercials wearing hats, striped shirts, denim vests, shorts and even miniskirts. Shot on a beach in Malibu, Calif., the images that have been released so far feature a solo Dannielynn. Guess?

PHOTOS: Dannielynn Birkhead Models For Guess Kids
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Dannielynn Birkhead, the 6-year-old daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead, is following on the heels of of her mom's modeling days: she's now the new face of Guess Kids. You might remember Anna Nicole Smith's iconic Guess campaigns in the '90s, when the smoldering blonde took over from Claudia Schiffer as the face of Guess in 1992. Now her daughter has inherited the sizeable shoes of being a Guess girl -- at least, a Guess girl in the making. "Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on a set," Guess creative director Paul Marciano said in a statement of the images, which display the company's spring 2013 kids line on a sunny beach in Malibu. Little Danniellyn, whom some say is the spitting image of her mother, was only five months old when Anna Nicole Smith was found dead of a drug overdose. Her friend Larry Birkhead gained full custody of Dannielynn soon after and has raised his daughter on his own. See the cute campaign imag ...
