Former Smith boyfriend father of infant

NASSAU, Bahamas - Anna Nicole Smith's former boyfriend Larry Birkhead said Tuesday that DNA tests have proven he is the father of her infant daughter.

Birkhead emerged from a closed court hearing to announce the results. Smith's companion, Howard K. Stern, has been caring for the girl, Dannielynn, who could inherit a fortune in the wake of her mother's February death.

After the hearing, Stern said he would not fight for custody.

An expert in genetic evidence said the DNA analysis has proven Birkhead is Dannielynn's father. Dr. Michael Baird, who analyzed the results of a March 21 DNA test, announced the results outside the court. "Essentially, he's the biological father," Baird said.

A jubilant Birkhead said "My baby's going to be coming home pretty soon."

    I would like to believe that money has nothing to do with this man wanting his own child. He has been claiming the child since it was born, not just since anna's death.

    It appears to me that from the father's reaction, he's only in it for the money! How sad for the baby!

    I really felt that Larry was the father.It is sad though in one sense because Dannylynn has bonded with Stern and he with her.At the same time it is great that she will know her real father. My prayeres are with them all.

    I'm glad the results are over. I think that he should at least let the grandmother see her grandaughter once in awhile. It's not fair for the baby not to know her grandmother.
