BAHAMIAN COURT ORDERS DNA TESTING


The world will soon know the identity of the man who fathered Anna Nicole Smith's daughter. The Bahamas Supreme Court today ordered a DNA test to determine the paternity of the five-month-old baby who's been at the center of the media maelstrom since her mother passed away in February at the age of 39. Dr. Deborah Rose the Bahamian lawyer representing Smith’s mother Virgie Arthur, confirms the court’s ruling to Usmagazine.com. “They ordered the DNA test for Dannielynn,” she said. Smith’s partner Howard K. Stern, who is listed as Dannielynn's father on her birth certificate, looked downtrodden when he arrived at court on Tuesday afternoon to hear the judge’s decision. “I'm doing the best that I can,” he said. Larry Birkhead, Smith’s former boyfriend who also claims he is the father of the infant, showed up 15 minutes after Stern and clearly had the favor of tourists and locals who cheered and screamed, “We're on your side.” After the ruling, the two waging would-be fathers exited the courthouse in high spirits. “Bahamian people, thank you so much," Stern said as he rushed out of the building. Meanwhile, Birkhead jumped in the air and pumped his fist. “I feel great,” he said. “It was a great day in court for me.” (SOURCE US MAGAZINE)
