(Newser) –  Daniellyn finally has a baby daddy. DNA evidence proved that the daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith can call paparazzo Larry Birkhead Dad. "I told you so," a jubilant Birkhead told reporters after the announcement at a court hearing in the Bahamas. He  hugged his rival, Howard K. Stern, Smith's former lawyer and companion.

While Stern plans to support Birkhead, Smith's mother Virgie Arthur, has not yet disclosed whether she will seek custody. "I'm happy that Dannielynn will know who her real father is," she said. Dannielynn has the potential to inherit a fortune from Smith's late husband, oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall.
