DNA test declares Larry Birkhead the father of Anna Nicole Smith child

UPI News Service, 04/10/2007 

Larry Birkhead, a former lover of Anna Nicole Smith, said a Bahamian court Tuesday declared he is the father of Smith's daughter, Dannielynn.

A DNA test confirmed him as the father with 99.99 percent certainty, said Dr. Michael Baird, who performed the test, CNN reported Tuesday.

"I told you so," Birkhead said outside the court.

The court ordered DNA testing to determine who fathered the child, the focus of a paternity dispute since she was born in September.

Smith publicly identified Howard K. Stern, her lawyer and companion, as the baby's father. He was listed as the father on the child's birth certificate. In September, Stern said he and Smith were confident he was the father, explaining, "based on when the timing of when the baby was born, there really is no doubt in either of our minds."

The child could inherit millions from the estate of Smith's late husband, oil tycoon Howard Marshall II. Until her death Feb. 8, Smith was involved in a legal battle over the inheritance.
