Five years after Anna Nicole’s tragic death, Larry Birkhead speaks out in a new interview about how their daughter Dannielynn is doing, and the tragic question no parent would ever want to answer — click to watch the video.

In an interview with Good Morning America on June 18, Larry Birkhead revealed the heartbreaking question his beautiful daughter Dannielynn Birkhead asked during a recent trip to the gravesite of her mother Anna Nicole Smith.

“This time was a little tough because she has a little bit better understanding of things,” Larry, 39, said about daughter Dannielynn, 5, “She said ‘why did mommy die?'”

He responded to the heartbreaking question by telling her “Doctors couldn’t fix her, but if you’re good… you’ll get to see her someday.”

In 2007, Larry fought an intense custody battle over Dannielynn because the paternity of Anna Nicole’s daughter was unclear. Anna Nicole’s then-partner Howard Stern believed he was the father and had custody of Dannielynn. Larry was then awarded custody of Dannielynn after DNA testing proved that he was her father.

Larry has made protecting Dannielynn his number-one priority in order to give her a normal life.

“She’s as well adjusted as she can be,” Larry said. “She just worries about her toys and where she’s going and where I’m gonna take her. And I do all the shielding and worrying for her.”
