Birkhead: No need to share legal custody

Hopefully this can now be put to rest.  And this child can lead a somewhat normal life. 

Birkhead: No need to share legal custody – Yahoo! News

NASSAU, Bahamas – Larry Birkhead said Wednesday he doesn’t plan to share legal custody of

Anna Nicole Smith‘s baby, a day after a court announced that DNA tests proved he is the father.  Birkhead, accompanied by his relatives, visited Dannielynn several hours after Tuesday’s announcement of the DNA test results, “Entertainment Tonight” reported. The former boyfriend changed his daughter’s diaper and fed her apple sauce with some coaching from Smith’s lawyer-turned-partner Howard K. Stern, the program reported.

A hearing is scheduled for Friday during which a judge is expected to discuss who will raise 7-month-old Dannielynn. Stern, who has been caring for the baby since Smith’s sudden death in February, said he wouldn’t fight for custody, but a lawyer for Smith’s mother, Virgie Arthur, indicated she might.

Birkhead said Wednesday he did not want another legal fight.

“We might go from one fight to another, but I’m hoping that’s not the case because, you know, there’s only one dad, and I have no problem with anyone that has good intentions being allowed to visit the baby and see the baby and be a part of the baby’s life,” he told NBC’s “Today” show from the Bahamas.
