Larry Birkhead Wants Dannielynn All to Himself

by at . Comments

It's Larry Birkhead's baby - and he'll file for sole custody of her if he wants to.

After almost two weeks of relative calm in the custody battle over Anna Nicole Smith's daughter, Dannielynn, the case is back in court.

Dannielynn and Dad

Birkhead filed a petition in probate court yesterday to be appointed as the sole guardian of the Estate of 8 month-old Dannielynn Marshall Birkhead. The man who triumphed over Howard K. Stern asks the court to name him as guardian "in order to represent his daughter's interest in the probate proceedings for the Estate of Vickie Lynn Marshall, aka Anna Nicole Smith."

Birkhead's hearing is set for June 19.

Meanwhile, according to Smith's will, Stern has been named special administrator as well as executor of her estate. Smith's personal attorney Ron Rale was named second executor.

There's no word on the role Willa Ford will play in all this yet.

The will, which Smith signed and dated on July 30th, 2001, before Dannielynn's birth and son Daniel's death, lists her sole child as Daniel Wayne Smith. It will directs that all of Smith's property, after the payment of taxes, be distributed to Stern, who will hold it in a trust for her child, Daniel.

Of course, we all know that tragically happened there.

In other unfortunate news, Larry Birkhead, who arrived in the states with Dannielynn on May 1, should prepare for a challenge to his request for guardianship from Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur.

She's competing with Candy Spelling and Dina Lohan for worst mother in the world.

Larry does not even hold the baby naturally. Look at the video of him in Hawaii trying to "ACT" like a good dad, he has to be told by another man to hold her up, he looks lost and out of place trying to "ACT" like a dad. It's almost like he is not use to holding her.

My husband and i had the pleasure of talking to Larry, the nanny and playing with his his beautiful baby girl in Maui, Hawaii 1 week ago, We had no idea who we were talking to until after the fact and of course there is always someone around that cant beat feet fast enough to say do you know who you were talking to. before we talked larry i watched him with his daughter at the pool, I love children, they had my attention quick. Larry was so attentive, loving, caring, gentle man I have seen as a male alone with a baby, you could see the love for his daughter in his eyes , the way he talked to her, played with her, held her, this beautiful baby girl could not have asked for a better father

Hope Paris takes lots of books and reading items to jail withher. Maybe she can learn to talk, and to spell. Mr. S., the Gov. put her in her place. She and her fans seem to think she is above the law. Even, the Gov. knows he is not above the law. Good for him, Good for her.
