American Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead's daughter Dannielynn Birkhead is deceased. Dannielynn's net worth is approximately $3 million. Her father, Larry, also has a net worth of that amount.
This child was born on the 7th of September 2006. On the night of her death, on February 8, 2007, Anna Nicole's live-in partner was Howard K. Stern of the Stern Law Firm in the United States, who claimed to be her biological father. Among the men who claimed to be Dannielynn's father were Smith's personal bodyguard Alexander Denk and German-born socialite and current spouse of Zsa Zsa Gabor Frederic Prinz von Anhalt.
In the end, a DNA paternity test proved that photographer Larry Birkhead was her biological father.
Inheritance of Dannielynn Birkhead
According to the latest court order, Howard Marshall's estate is going to Dannielynn Birkhead. No money from J. Anna Nicole Smith claimed that the late millionaire made a verbal promise to give her the fortune. Even though J. Howard Marshall and his family were alive for nearly 15 years; a Texas appeals court has concluded that the billionaire never intended to leave Smith his whole fortune.
As a model for Guess Girl Spring 2013, Birkhead appeared in the campaign. Daniel Wayne Smith, her older brother, died at 20. When Dannielynn was only five months old, her mother passed away. It was at the Kentucky Derby that Dannielynn Birkhead and her father first met, and she has attended the race every year since.
After Anna Nicole: The Larry and Dannielynn Story aired on TV in 2013, she was a cast member. As a guest star, Birkhead has been on several other shows, including True Crime with Aphrodite Jones, Celebrity Wife Swap, and Steve Harvey. An eye issue necessitated surgery when she was 16 months old.

Anna Nicole Smith's Estate Did Dannielynn Birkhead Inherit?
Dannielynn's mother's net worth and Smith's last-minute appeal for a portion of the money were still up in the air at the beginning of the case. Anna Nicole's legal case for a share of the late J. Howard Marshall II's fortune looked hopeful because she was previously married to an oil millionaire.
Because Anna Nicole was the beneficiary of his estate, Dannielynn did not receive any of the millions. However, she was left with almost $700,000, which was a substantial sum for a toddler.

Because Larry Birkhead appears to be in charge of Anna Nicole Smith's estate, it isn't easy to estimate its current value. Because of this, it's probable that Smith's $3 million net worth already includes the value of his image.
A recent GUESS campaign involving photographs of Anna Nicole Smith and a doppelganger named Sydney Sweeney clearly shows that Larry Birkhead has the last say when it comes to using her likeness.
Paternity Claims Against Dannielynn Birkhead
Unpredictable and turbulent were Birkhead's words for their relationship. With Smith, they would often laugh at the dark comedy “The War of the Roses,” which he said had a lot in common with their romance. In response to why he had stayed in such an environment, Birkhood said he had packed his bags several times, but Smith had persuaded him not to go each time.
She confided in him about her pregnancy during one of their fights. He even went so far as to ask her if she was confident that the unborn child was his. Despite her doubts, she insisted that he was the child's father. According to Birkhead, there had been a deliberate plot to keep Birkhead out of the child's life.
In addition, he charged Smith's lawyer and close friend Howard K. Stern with engineering the breakup of their firm. After another dispute with Birkhead, Smith decided to move to the Bahamas six months into her pregnancy. In a video posted on her website soon after, Smith announced her pregnancy. Having a girl was always on her wish list.
She would go from city to city in search of pink, frilly clothing in the hopes of dressing her child one day. Smith was taking various prescription medications alarmed Birkhead, who was back home in the US and living in Los Angeles at the time. During the birth of their daughter, Birkhead was not allowed into the delivery room by the hospital staff.
While visiting his mother in the maternity ward with his mother, Daniel Wayne Smith, Dannielynn's half-brother, died. The 20-year-old accidentally overdosed on his mother's methadone, Zoloft, and Lexapro, which were all prescribed to him by his mother. Birkhead said that Daniel had stolen his mother's medication from the house's security system.
After her son's death, Smith was unable to come to terms with her grief. In Smith's life, Daniel was the only one she was convinced would always have her back. She tried to get into the casket at Daniel's funeral because of her tremendous grief. When she saw a cloud, she would mistakenly believe it was Daniel. She would tell him she wanted to join him.
By the time Birkhead realized Smith wasn't fit to care for their daughter, it was too late. On the other hand, Birkhead had to prove his paternity to be present in his daughter's life. ON SMITH'S SECOND BIRTH CERTIFICATE, Howard K. Stern was listed as the father of Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, dated October 11, 2006.
Hannibal Rose Stern was Dannielynn's stage name from September 7 until October 11, 2006. A South Carolina-based real estate entrepreneur claims that after Dannielynn's birth, Smith sought to place his name on the child's birth certificate, saying that Dannielynn was his daughter. As a result of Thompson's vasectomy, he couldn't have children.
The birth certificate has certain inconsistencies. Even though Stern was listed as the child's father, Dion Smith Jr. placed his name in place of Stern's signature. That made it possible to get a fresh birth certificate and DNA testing to confirm the child's paternity.
As a result of “combined drug intoxication” with chloral hydrate as its “primary component,” Smith died on February 8, 2007, at 39, five months after giving birth to her daughter. As of this time, Birkhead had taken his case to court to prove that he was Dannielynn's father.
A petition was filed with the court on February 20 requesting that Stern provide his DNA samples for testing. The judge placed the paternity question on hold until Smith's burial and the ensuing legal proceedings had been completed. Numerous others made paternity claims, including Zsa Zsa Gabor's eighth and final spouse Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt; Alexander Denk, Smith's bodyguard; and Mark “Hollywood” Hatten, a convicted felon and convicted murderer.
It has been rumoured that Smith's second husband, Marshall, who died in 2007, was the father. Dr Michael Baird finally concluded that Birkhead was the father on April 10th, 2007, after analyzing the results of a test performed on March 21st. As a result, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead was renamed, Birkhead.
