How does Anna Nicole Smith mourn the sudden death of her 20-year old son? First, she sells the final pictures of him alive.

Then, she gets married. For the third time.

While it’s doubtful Smith and her longtime lawyer and confidant, Howard K. Stern, will top Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock in the multiple marriage department, the two still exchanged vows in a commitment ceremony in the Bahamas Thursday.

The ceremony was not formal and is “not legally binding,” attorney Michael Scott said.

So, does that mean we can just announce that we’re married to Eva Longoria and have it considered basically valid?

“It was low-key, on a boat,” a source close to the couple told People magazine. “It was a simple ceremony, exchanging vows.”

On Tuesday, Stern said on Larry King Live that he is the father of Smith’s baby daughter, Dannielynn Hope, born Sept. 7 — just three days before Smith’s 20-year-old son, Daniel, died while visiting his mother in the hospital.

“We love each other and it’s been going on for a very long time and because of my relationship as her lawyer, we felt it was best to keep everything hidden. And we’ve done a pretty good job of that,” said Stern.

Kind of like how Lindsay Lohan is trying to keep her dumping at the hands of Harry Morton secret.

Dr. Cyril Wecht, a private pathologist hired by the Smith family to investigate Daniel’s death, told People Daniel had been killed by cardiac dysrhythmia caused by a lethal combination of methadone, Zoloft and Lexapro.

He also said on Friday that he has now ruled out any natural cause of death based on tissue samples from Daniel that he examined yesterday.
