Just seven months old, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern stands to inherit a fortune if the legal battles her mother left her ever get resolved. The baby could potentially inherit millions from the estate of Smith’s late husband, J. Howard Marshall II. The former model had been fighting the Texas oil tycoon’s family over his estimated $500 million fortune since his death in 1995, and that battle remains unresolved. It remains unclear how much, if any, of the Marshall estate Dannielynn could ever hope to obtain, and whether her guardian would have any access to the money. Even Smith’s own estate remains unresolved. A 2001 will released after her death in February said her fortune should be held in trust for her son, but he’s dead now. The 19-page will named Stern as her executor, but did not say how much Smith was worth or how much her daughter might inherit. Smith gave birth to Dannielynn in September, then saw her 20-year-old son Daniel die days later at her bedside from a lethal combination of drugs. She died on Feb. 8, at the age of 39, also from a deadly mix of prescription drugs. NASSAU, Bahamas – In a soap opera ending to the latest chapter of the Anna Nicole Smith drama, two of her baby’s would-be fathers – one jubilant, the other grim – emerged from a pink Bahamas courthouse to hundreds of fans and paparazzi photographers. It was the sort of scene – carried live on cable TV – that would be relished by many who followed the life and death of the small-town Texas girl who became famous for being famous, first as a Playboy Playmate and later as the star of her own reality TV series. Photographer Larry Birkhead, Smith’s former boyfriend, was the center of attention Tuesday, pumping his fist and proclaiming “I hate to be the one who told you this, but I told you so: I’m the father!” DNA tests on blood samples taken from the baby girl and Birkhead proved it, confirmed the court’s expert, Dr. Michael Baird, as the cameras whirred and clicked. Birkhead, who broke up with Smith before she moved to the Bahamas in July, had been seeking custody of the girl for months, but first he had to get past Howard K. Stern, Smith’s lawyer-turned-companion. Stern was listed on the birth certificate as the father of Dannielynn and had been taking care of the child at the gated, oceanfront mansion the couple shared in the Bahamas. “I’m obviously very disappointed, but my feelings for Dannielynn have not changed,” Stern said outside the courthouse, where the two men shook hands and embraced before the cameras. Stern said he would support Birkhead in the next round of the custody dispute, which comes Friday as a Bahamas judge considers the claim of Smith’s mother, Virgie Arthur. “I’m going to do whatever I can to make sure he gets sole custody,” Stern said. Stern also said Birkhead would be welcome to come over to the mansion as soon as he wanted, and for as long as he wanted, to see Dannielynn.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
