Dannielynn Smith Re-routed Through Kentucky
Two months after the death of Anna Nicole Smith, DNA tests revealed yesterday in the Bahamas have confirmed that photographer Larry Birkhead is the father of her daughter Dannielynn. It was a great day for Birkhead, who broke up with Anna Nicole in July of last year, but not for widower and lawyer Howard K. Stern, who had a "commitment ceremony" with Smith in September and is listed on the baby's birth certificate.
Birkhead and Smith met at the Kentucky Derby in 2004 and he's a Louisville native, although these days the paparazzo calls Burbank home. For all you would-be celebrity baby-daddies, this year's Derby will be held May 5, which gives you 24 days to build up your tolerance for mint juleps and giant, ridiculous hats.
But if you really, really want to get involved in a paternity case of your very own, might we recommend setting up camp early? The Kentucky Derby Festival presents events all throughout April -- this Friday and Saturday, for instance, is the Adidas Derby Festival starring up-and-coming basketball players. Dannielynn may be staying in the Bahamas for the moment, but you don't have to.
