Anna Nicole Baby Shocker

10/23/2006 4:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Anna Nicole Smith confessed during her pregnancy that Larry Birkhead was the father of her baby.

Sources tell TMZ that late last year, Anna Nicole began having sexual relations with Gaither Ben Thompson, a wealthy real estate developer in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We're told that Howard K. Stern, the lawyer who claims to be the father of Anna Nicole's newborn baby, was in Myrtle Beach during the time Anna Nicole was seeing Thompson. Remember, Stern has said he had a long-term relationship with Anna Nicole, which seems odd given that Stern accompanied Smith to Myrtle Beach.

Sources say in May of this year, Anna Nicole contacted Thompson to say that he was the father of her soon-to-be-born baby girl. It's especially interesting because we're told that Anna Nicole had contacted people familiar with Thompson inquiring about his wealth. That's when Thompson dropped a bombshell -- that it was impossible for him to father a baby because he had already had a vasectomy. Days later, sources say Anna Nicole confessed to Thompson that Larry Birkhead was the father. Birkhead, an entertainment photographer who had a relationship with Anna Nicole, has filed legal papers in Los Angeles to establish paternity.

And there's a new twist to this story. Anna Nicole and Howard K. Stern have been staying in one of Thompson's houses in the Bahamas. Anna Nicole has established legal residency in the Bahamas under the premise that she owned a home. Tracy Ferguson, Thompson's lawyer, tells TMZ that her client sold one of his homes to Anna Nicole on credit, but she has never been paid a cent. Ferguson says Anna Nicole is in default and Thompson wants her out.

If the Bahamian government believes the alleged home purchase was a scam to gain residency, Anna Nicole could be deported.

Howard K. Stern, Anna's lawyer and rep, could not be reached for comment.

I think that assistant she had on the show is the dad. You know the one with the purple hair that was kind of fugly. Or maybe she humped sugar pie.

I hope they deport her ass after she gets evicted. And, that Larry takes her new baby girl from her when she gets back to the USA. She is making a mockery of her life, even moreso than she ever has before. I think it is funny as hell that she tried to tell a wealthy real estate developer that he was the father. Can you say GOLD DIGGER? I will laugh my ass off when she gets sent back to the US and has no choice but take the paternity test. When it is revealed that Stern is not the father, maybe he will tuck in tail between his legs and run along. Hopefully one day he will be able to find someone who actually will have sex with him!!!!!!!!!

I've thought all along that she was hiding something and that Larry Birkhead was the father. He should have custody as far as I'm concerned. Her lawyer seems so obsessed with her I think it's creepy. Aren't there supposed to be paternity tests? I hope Larry fights hard for custody once it's all out there!

My two cents    

Well, well, well....ain't THIS a pretty picture?? Looks like she is finally getting cornered! Makes you wonder where she is going to run to now???? Bet me a buck that she is out of the Bahamas within the next 48 hours and unable to be found for a while.....
Whatcha think Wise Old Owl?? Can't wait for your commentary on THIS one!!!

Could this story be any more sad/pathethic?

Next thing you know, Anna will be on Maury: "when it comes to Anna Nicole's baby, you [are/are not] the father." This is so, so sad.

Perhaps neither of them is the father, and that it was immaculate conception.
