Who is larry birkhead dating now
As a general rule, it’s never a great idea for a D-list celebrity to slink back into the limelight via a reality show years after their 15 minutes of fame.
So the odds weren’t great for photographer Larry Birkhead, best known as the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter — the guy who won the complicated suit claiming paternity after the Playboy model died — when it was announced he would appear on the season premiere of Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker.” Still, this was also intriguing news, because Birkhead has surprisingly stayed out of the spotlight living in his home state of Kentucky for the past eight years since Smith’s death; save for a few questionable red carpet appearances with their adorable daughter, Dannielynn. (Birkhead later told Oprah that looking back, he’s pretty embarrassed by that reaction; he was just swept up in the emotion.) Anyway, Birkhead, 38, apparently hasn’t really dated since Smith died, so that’s where “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger came in.
Birkhead was born on January 22, 1973 in Jefferson County, Kentucky, he graduated from Louisville's Doss High School in 1991, and he has one twin brother, a sister and a half-sister.
Larry met Anna Nicole while attending the major Louisville-area Kentucky Derby party known as the Trish Barnstable Brown Gala in May 2004.
Stern who was listed on the birth certificate as the father.
In 2012, Birkhead worked with Guess and Dannielynn began modeling for the brand.
This move created some public backlash with critics claiming he was being exploitive since her mother had modeled for the same company in the 1990s.
After Smith's death in 2007 temporary custody was giving to American attorney Howard K.
“I try my best to keep Anna Nicole’s memory alive for Dannielynn so I’ll have things throughout the house,” Birkhead said as the cameras showed various dresses and pictures of the model from her younger days.
“It’s been hard trying to find that balance of what’s enough for Dannielynn to know her mom — but what’s also the limit to where I can move on and put myself back out there and try to find love again.” “I’m worried that Larry lives in the past, but that’s what I’m here for,” Stanger confidently told the cameras. “I don’t think I’m putting out the ‘hey babe’ vibe,” Birkhead muttered, turning three shades of red as Stanger raved about his good looks.
Again, a not very consequential hour of TV, but one that showed that Birkhead appears to be a kind, normal guy — certainly not what you would assume from the tabloid coverage years ago.
And it serves a nice reminder that sometimes, people can actually benefit from the reality TV world.
Multiple men claimed to be the father, and when a DNA test proved it was Birkhead’s baby, he gloated outside the courthouse with his hands held high: “I hate to be the one who told you this, but. “I’m a little nervous about doing this dating thing,” Birkhead confessed to the camera.
