Anna Nicole's Baby's Father

Anna Nicole's Baby's Father

Anna Nicole's lawyer, Howard K. Stern, went on Larry King last night and revealed to the world that he is the father of her new baby girl, Dannie Lynn Hope. We always knew Howard had a crush on Anna Nicole so we are not surprised he has claimed to be the daddy. It's all so confusing especially since there is Larry Birkhead who is also claiming to be the father. Howard looked out of it and tired, or medicated, or something, but I guess they are all dealing with a lot of grief these days. Watch the clip below and read more:

"Right now we have to somehow get through what we're going through," he said. "And I'll tell you, our baby is the one ray of hope."

"We're still waiting to find out what the cause is," Stern said. "We also now have an indication that there may have been other prescriptive medication in his system but we don't know, you know, if that would have contributed to his death or not."

Stern said he and Anna Nicole Smith planned to stay in the Bahamas long term.

"She wanted to be here to get away from the media and to start a new life and to give her daughter, you know, a chance to live a normal life," said Stern, who described himself as a "proud father."

It's all still so sad. We never thought we would ever feel bad for Anna Nicole but we hope she is holding up OK.

from TMZ (not the most reliable, but it IS a quote directly from Birkhead: "Larry Birkhead said the following to TMZ , "I was not going to discuss the matter publicly, but since Howard K. Stern is attempting to bash me... I have been told that I am expecting a child, I have seen the ultrasound and have spoken to doctors. I am very excited about the possibility of becoming a father. Howard needs to get past his own jealousy about the relationship between myself and his only client."

That is so sweet she named her Dannie. Too bad she'll never get to meet her big brother. :(

My daughter is namd Hannah, so I'm kinda glad Anna Nicole renamed her daughter. How shallow am I? lol
I love the name Hannah and I think naming her after her deceased bro is kinda weird...but she's probably back on the pain killers again so she's not thinking straight..Can women with silicones breast feed? I knwo the saline people can since it's just salt props to chicks who have breast implants for other reasons then deformities or health related issues

Well, maybe she didn't know who the father was until a recent DNA test proved it. That happens when you're sleeping with more than one dude. I still feel for her and her lost son. That's just so sad. :(

This just gets weirder! I don't know what to believe, I have a feeling that Howard isn't really the father. I don't think it's creepy that she named her daughter Dannie, I think it's a really lovely way to keep him remembered, as they say, when someone dies a baby is born to fill their shoes... I don't think he was murdered too, it's just a very tragic event.

I say as long as it helps her find a lil happiness than its ok with me..WHOEVER the father is as long as the baby is taken care of..and i think that its kinda cool that they changed her name..keeps part of Daniel going a lil bit. I think his slowness in talking 1 had to do with the delay and second he seems genuinly upset at the loss!

Unfortunatly she couldn't pass on it cause she was poor, poor, poor. She was overweight and couldn't model the way she wanted.. she couldn't find a rich man to take care of her.. remember when she was trying to rent a house and was too broke to get the kind of house she wanted? So she just pleaded and begged to know one in particular.. the realtor and Howard. Gee wonder what she did for Howard then? She was also plastered or drugged out on that episode too. The only thing she had to sell was her soul and her "family life" to make some money. And it was a huge hit because she was a walking talking trashy train wreck. It is sad sad sad. I felt bad for Daniel his whole life.. remember the rumor that she was showing his friends in elementary school her Playboy spread?

DEF something stinky mcblinky going on, sashak...I thought that from the get go. Ima....once again, I agree with you 100%. I feel bad for that baby.....I cannot begin to imagine how bad her life is going to be. You all know when Anna's show was, Daniel was in high school...and he wanted NOTHING to do with the show. He was a very bright boy but dropped out because he was teased so damn bad. WTF?!?!? She should have passed on that show if Daniel was her top priority.

Its true Jenna..Howard was always waiting on the sides to get some..while she went on date after date.. that kinda creeps me out. Then she was dating this younger photographer and suddenly he was getting some? If Anna was sleeping with him it was her I am thin now power trip. And she was always blasted and know one makes educated measured decsions when plastered. I can't imagine the pain of losing a child..but I doubt she will ever admit that she helped it happen with her behavior and with her actions having an influence on her child. And now she is already setting her daughter up for failure. Children love to falsely internalize. Imagine the guilt you might falsely feel as a child or the pressure you may feel knowing your brother(who you are named for) died on your birthday and that you are a constant reminder of his death. F'd up.

I'm with JennaV all the way... I don't think Daniel was murdered in any way, but there is definately something fishy going on...

I could not agree more Ima. AND stupid me didn't even put 2 and 2 together.....the baby essentially has the same name as her late brother..... :? The Anna Nicole and Howard (in my opinion) relationship does NOT seem to be healthy and lord help the child that has to grow up with that. It always seemed like Howard was in love with her and Anna just uses him. Please no one jump all over me, that is just what I have always surmised.

This story is too bizarre. I don't feel sorry for ANS or both her babby daddies anymore. Someone did something to kill Daniel and it's all going to be covered up. These people are trash.

This baby has no chance... her mother is crazy and ususally on drugs, two men might be her father (one doesn't really want anything to do with her mother and the other has been infatuated for years watching her date other men), her brother died on her birthday and then they change her name to memorialize her dead brother. That will make for a Happy Birthday every year. Happy Birthday Danni now mommas gonna go cry, drink herself into a stupor and visit your brother grave. Nice. And Daniel dying of prescription drugs is no shocker..Anna is blasted out of her mind almost every time she goes out in public..if that is really what he died of then I blame her for introducing such a drug culture into her son's life. "Fix Everything With A Pill" mentality translates to drug use and overdose.

I agree, JennaV. I actually did meet my father, and he told me that he just wasn't that interested in being a father. So, he does have a right to know, and so does the baby, but it is not the most important thimg

Right Jenna, they can not just assume that he's the father forever, most def for the sake of the child.
