Dannielynn Birkhead Wiki – Dannielynn Birkhead Biography
Dannielynn Birkhead (Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead) is an American reality television personality and child model. She is the only daughter of Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead and was the focus of the Dannielynn Birkhead paternity case. Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead, named Hannah Rose Marshall Stern at birth, was born to Anna Nicole Smith on September 7, 2006, in Nassau, The Bahamas. Almost immediately, questions over her paternity arose, quickly followed by the death of her half-brother, Daniel Smith, three days after her birth. Smith’s death and her custody preceded the paternity claims made by attorney Howard K. Stern, Larry Birkhead, Smith’s bodyguard Alexander Denk, and Frederic von Anhalt, husband of the actress Zsa Zsa Gabor. Her mother, Smith named Howard K. Stern as the father on her daughter’s birth certificate.
Her father Birkhead is a celebrity photographer from Kentucky, brought his challenge to court to legitimize his claim. After DNA testing, he was formally established as the father. After gaining custody of his daughter, Dannielynn’s surname was changed from Stern to Birkhead. At age six, she participated in a modeling campaign for Guess Kids, the children’s line for Guess clothing. Paul Marciano, the co-founder of Guess, stated “Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on a set.” The campaign was followed by the Spring 2013 line. She and her father attended the Kentucky Derby in 2008, where her parents had first met.
In August 2014, federal court judge David O. Carter ruled Dannielynn Birkhead will not receive $44 million from the estate of the late E. Pierce Marshall, the son of J. Howard Marshall. Her father was hopeful that Dannielynn would receive a substantial amount of money in sanctions. Judge Carter denied this request, ruling that there was “just no evidence before the court that justifies awarding sanctions against Pierce Marshall’s estate”.
