Everybody remembers when Anna Nicole Smith died of drug related complications shortly after the birth of her daughter, and the huge custody battle over the little girl, but it seems that little Dannielynn Birkhead is doing well and a happy little girl with daddy Larry. OK! Magazine got an exclusive interview with the Larry right after Dannielynn’s third birthday on September 7. Kinda brilliant on Larry’s part, right? As they put it, Larry and Dannielynn “are living proof that love can triumph over tragedy.”
On 3-year-old Dannielynn: “It seems only weeks ago I was bringing her home and now all this time has gone by and she’s bigger and wiser and such a great kid.”
On how she’s like mommy: “I have photos where they look exactly the same. She loves posing for the camera like Anna, too. And she’s going to be tall like her mommy.”
On daddy life: “It’s hard work and time consuming but it’s worth it when I hear her laugh. All my friends are out in bars, but I don’t miss it. In fact, I’m morphing into my parents — I’ve become corny and sensible.”
On missing Mommy Anna: “She misses her mom so much. Right now she’s at the age where she’s noticing that other children in television and in books have moms. She said to me the other day quite seriously, “Where’s my mom?” It was sad but I explained to her, “Your mommy is in the clouds and you’ll see her again one day.” She knows who her mom is, though — I make sure of that. Our home is filled with photos of Anna and recognizes her straight away.”
From the looks of it, she is quite an adorable little girl and she looks incredibly happy with her dad. Larry says that he wants to be her shield and keep her from worrying about the nasty things. Aww cute. As the daughter of Anna Nicole Smith, I’m pretty positive that she’s going to have to deal with a lot of nasty. I’m just hoping she stays off the celebrity path. That very rarely works out well.
What do you guys think? Cute kid? Think Larry is being the best dad he can be? Think he needs to stop showing his little girl at every opportunity? Let us know in the comments!
