Larry Birkhead Net Worth
Larry Birkhead net worth: Larry Birkhead is a celebrity photographer and the well-known love interest of the late American Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith, who has a net worth of $10 million. Larry Birkhead has earned his net worth as an actor and as the father of Smith's five-year-old daughter Dannielynn; she was born on September 7, 2006 in Nassau, Bahamas. Model, actress, television personality Anna Nicole Smith died on February 8, 2007, in Hollywood, Florida at the young age of 39. 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. After a struggle for custody ensued after the death of Anna Nicole, DNA testing proved that Birkhead was in fact the biological father of Dannielynn, and he was given sole custody on April 10, 2007, by a Bahamian court. After Smith's death in 2007 temporary custody was giving to American attorney Howard K. 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. Birkhead explained that it was a way for his child to connect with her deceased mom. He and Dannielynn resided in Burbank, California for many years, but as of 2013, the two have been living in rural Kentucky near his hometown. In 2014, Birkhead appeared on two reality television shows and opened up a bit about his life after Anna Nicole; he first appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap where he traded lives with race car driver Helio Castroneves and later appeared on Millionaire Matchmaker with Patti Stanger where she attempted to help him begin to date again.
