Larry Birkhead is Anna Nicole's Baby's Daddy

By Liz Kelly

Will link to wire story when we have it, but Larry Birkhead just emerged from the courthouse where the DNA results were revealed and said "I told you so!" He says his next move is to go to a toy store.

Howard K. Stern says he's disappointed but will not fight for custody of baby Dannielynn.

No reaction yet from Prince Frederic von Anhalt.

4:17 p.m. ET: As promised, here's a link to the wire story. Look for a timeline of little Dannielynn's travails to be posted shortly.

Is anyone surprised by this revelation?

Though I was sorta rooting for old Freddy, I'm just glad HKS isn't the baby daddy.

Now that what we already knew has been validated... After all the reporting about when Birkhead will be able to take custody of his little girl, please no more ANS stories... at least for a few days... PLEASE!

FINALLY! I'm glad Stern won't get fingers on the money and I think Birkhead will be a very good father. Stern's probably scoping out his next victim now.

I haven't been following the daddy wars, so I'm glad to read the other comments that Larry Birkhead is a likely to be a good father. But I have to wonder about someone who's first offical reaction to the news his baby is coming home is "I told you so!" The other guys must be real bottom feeders.

Larry Birkhead: Please do your best to Dannielynn out of the tabloids.

Do not make amends Howard K Stern or let him represent you or Dannielynn for any reason. The man is weasel plain and simple.

The old guy who claims to be a Prince: Now, you're too old you're this nonsense. Do not issue a statement.

Yea, I would call Prince Frederic a bottom feeder, but Stern is much, much lower than that.

I just hope the baby grandma don't get a hold of her and take off.

Let's see: the guy who has a job, never sold his story for money and just wants to care for his baby turns out to be the daddy. There is a God. Now HKS needs to find another Sugar Momma (cause for sure he should be disbarred for his actions -- at the very least)

I'm sure glad THAT*s settled. Now we can all sit back and watch them turn that kid into another JonBenet.

Oh, and the guy who won is the one who FIRED his attorney for talking to the press too much. If he can keep going the way he has, Dannielynn has a chance.

I agree with "M" - but not just a few days. How about forever. We just don't need any more stories about that disfunctional group. And, yes, Fairfax, you're right - no chance in hell that kid's going to turn our normal.

wait, what's with stern as a low bottom feeder? i haven't been paying attn.

For those who are saying that a baby isn't going to turn out "normal" - Are you "normal"? Do you even care that you are commenting negatively about a BABY. That's pretty pathetic.

I think we have witnessed the creation of the next generation's Paris Hilton. With (potentially) all that money, the collective guilt over her being motherless, and the legacy of her surgically-enhanced stripper mother hanging over her... how can it be otherwise? This should be LB's personal challenge to himself. See if he can prevent that inevitable train wreck. Best of luck to him.

Posted by: WDC | April 10, 2007 5:22 PM | Report abuse

Actually, Marie, we're commenting negatively on the cast of tasteless thousands that will likely turn that BABY into a trampy tabloid editor's dream. I don't know if it's nature or nuture, but this little mite doesn't have much hope either way.

WDC & Emmy - I'm sure her biggest obstacle will be people like you.

"The other guys must be real bottom feeders" -- anyone who would sleep with someone as gross as ANS (who we now know had genital warts on top of everything else) is, IMHO, definitely a bottom feeder!

Who didn't think it was Larry's baby?! And yes, it is time for this to go away. BUT I cannot wait for her to turn 16! I'm imagining a huge party, lots of booze and drugs, strippers, and a new car, just like on MTV's Sweet 16. Yay!

Posted by: miss belle | April 10, 2007 7:35 PM | Report abuse

The next question is: who gave Anna Nichole genital warts?

Posted by: edie | April 10, 2007 7:49 PM | Report abuse

miss belle, your thoughts are rather vile and I somehow doubt that Larry Birkhead will raise her to go down that path.

Posted by: Bet me | April 10, 2007 8:34 PM | Report abuse

Larry Birkhead is an opportunist, same with the phony Prince Frederic von Anhalt. If not for that potential megamillions of Dannielynn, it is highly unlikely that Birkhead would pursue the paternity case.

Posted by: Carol | April 11, 2007 12:50 AM | Report abuse

Actually Carol...Larry was trying to prove that he was Dannielynn's daddy way before Anna even died. So he's not about the money.
