Anna Nicole Smith's Daughter Asks Dad Larry Birkhead 'Why Did Mommy Die?'

Mon, June 18, 2012 5:23pm EDT by 9 Comments

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.”

HollyMoms, do YOU think Larry Birkhead has done a good job protecting Dannielynn? Watch the video below!

She is so cute, i love her baby teeth. Larry is doing a great job raising her as a single dad. Some single dads that broke up or divorced could care less about their kid(s). People needs to stop bashing single moms or dads and see if their kid is happy and well taken care of. And start bashing lazy moms and dads. Keep it up Larry

I think she is gorgeous! She still has baby teeth, and I dont think they are ugly at all. You cant fix baby teeth, as they are just going to fall out.

He keeps on talking about how he wants her to have a normal life then he goes and takes her to do interviews like this. Its like he doesn’t want his 15 minutes of fame to ever end.

Howard Sten wasn’t Anna Nicole’s husband, he was her “boyfriend of the moment” and, by mutual admission, they weren’t exclusive.

Larry Birkhead should stop exploiting motherless child in tabloids, and find a decent job. It’s very wrong that a little girl financially supprts healthy dad aged 39.

Where is he explloting her and how is DannieLynn supporting him? Larry is a working photographer and you never see hmi parading his daughter around for profit. Anna Nicole lived the life but her wealth was tied up in the fight with J.Howard Marshall’s son PIecer over that multi-million dollar inheritance. The coruts sided with AN originally but the last ruond of appeals, the court’s decision went against Anna Nicole so there wasn’t anything for anybody to live off of. Larry B is doing fine.

Everytime Larry does a photoshot with her he gets paid for it.

Larry Birkhead was paparazzo. He took pictures for Splash. He has no job since 2007. Anna’s Estate and Anna’s daughter are paying his bills. He was nobody in Hollywood. Kevin Federline was his role model. Larry’s gay lover expose him in public.
