Were Larry Birkhead and Anna Nicole Smith really in love?
Larry Birkhead went from photographer to high profile lover of the infamous Playboy model turned TrimSpa spokesperson, Anna Nicole Smith. Now, after her death, Birkhead is left fighting for the child he claims as his own. The question I have been is asking is: Were Larry Birkhead and Anna Nicole Smith really in love?
In the last days of her life, we knew Smith as the woman who was trying to avoid Birkhead as he struggled to get a paternity test to prove he was the father of her newborn child, Dannielynn.
“I knew when I looked at her she was mine. I said, ‘That's my baby. She looks like me. She's mine,’ ” Birkhead told “Access Hollywood” “There was not a doubt.”
That's the same story we have been hearing for a while. It's the story that Birkhead told next that really hit home for me.
Birkhead, Smith's estranged mother and her most recent companion viewed Smith's body last week. Even though he was with Virgie Arthur and Howard K. Stern, Birkhead still seemed to have an emotional attachment to what he and Smith had.
“There was something she made me say every night before she went to sleep,” Birkhead said, tears spilling down his cheeks. “I said, ‘Good night my sweet Anna baby.’ That's what she wanted me to say to her every night before she went to sleep.”
So as Birkhead said his final good-bye to his former girlfriend and likely the mother of his daughter, he said, ‘Good night my sweet Anna baby.’
It makes you think of what things were like between Birkhead and Smith before she moved to the Bahamas and shut him (and many others) out of her life.
