LOS ANGELES: A new birth certificate has been issued for Dannielynn, the seven-month old da-ughter of deceased model Anna Nicole Smith. Her new name is now Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead. According to Access Hollywood, the name change ca-me at the request of photographer Larry Birkhead, who was pronounced the fath-er after DNA testing.
Previously Dannielynn had the surname of Howard K Stern, Smithâ€™s former lawyer and partner, who was listed as the father on the original birth certificate.
Smith, 39, died on February 8 from a lethal combination of prescription drugs. Birkhead and Stern, along with several other men, had claimed paternity of Dannielynn, who stands to inherit Smithâ€™s claim to the fortune of her late husband J Howard Marshall.
