Remember Larry Birkhead, the baby daddy of Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn? He’s back in the news today after appearing on “Good Morning America,” where he gave a tear interview about his little girl asking about how her mommy died.
Keep reading for more on Larry Birkhead…after the jump.
In the interview, Birkhead said that he recently took his little girl to The Bahamas, where her mom and brother are buried. Naturally, the 5-year-old was curious and asked questions.
She said, ‘Why did mommy die?’ And I said, ‘You know, they, doctors couldn’t fix her. But if you’re good… you’ll get to see her someday. (via Yahoo!)
Birkhead is a single dad who is raising Dannielynn alone, out of the public eye… for the most part. Her appearance at the Kentuky Derby caused a media frenzy – one that he wasn’t prepared for
You know, it’s weird when your child is five years old and trending… There’s all these big stars that came and the next thing you know Dannielynn’s picture is all over the place.
So, how is Birkhead handling it all. Even though he wasn’t dating Anna Nicole when she died, he still finds it hard to move on.
It’s hard to move on in that way because you have this little 47-pound reminder of her mother walking around. I want to keep Anna’s image alive in a positive way. She could light up a room. And now her daughter’s taken her place and she’s lighting up every room that she goes into, trust me, I feel it every day.
Anna Nicole died at 39 of an accidental prescription drug overdose, just days after her son died.
