Larry Birkhead was born in 1973 in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky. Larry has a twin brother Lewis, sister named Angela Heuser and a half-sister Judy. Birkhead graduated Doss High School in Louisville. Larry lived in Burbank, California for some time before moving back to Kentucky.

Larry Birkhead was working as a photographer, successfully accumulating his net worth. The event that meant a lot for his personal life as well as making him a well known person in the entertainment business happened in May 2004. Larry participated in the “Trish Barnstable Brown Gala” party, one of the most fancy and popular celebrity gathering in the Kentucky area. That was where Larry met a famous Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith, and his life suddenly changed.

When Anna Nicole died suddenly in February 2007, their daughter Daniellyn was only 5 month-old. A legal battle over the custody began as there were several potential fathers claiming their paternity. Among these men were Howard K. Stern Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, Mark Hatten, and Anna Nicole Smith’s bodyguard Alexander Denk. The main battle was, however, between Howard Stern and Larry Birkhead. Before her death Anna Nicole was living with the attorney Howard Stern and claimed that he was the father of Danielynn. The girl was even registered by Stern’s last name. Her full name was Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern. Therefore, as soon as her mother died the custody was given to Stern who was thought of as the father. However, Birkhead was convinced that he was the real father and appealed to the court in order to get custody of the girl. Anna Nicole’s mother, Virgie Arthur, supported Larry in this case.

In April 2007 based on a DNA test that proved Larry’s paternity a Bahamian court made a decision to transfer the custody of Dannielynn from Howard Stern to Larry Birkhead. Larry was quick to change his daughter’s birth certificate into “Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead.” He also decided not to allow her grandmother Arthur as well as anyone else from Anna Nicole‘s family to be involved in Dannielynn’s life.

Larry Birkhead is also an actor, a job which helped him to earn his huge net worth in addition to his earnings as a photographer. Larry appeared in movies “Addicted to fame” and ‘The true crime of Aphrodite Jones“. In 2013 together with his daughter he starred in a TV film “Life after Anna Nicole: the Larry & Danielynn Story”.
