Connick Jr. Enters Anna Nicole Paternity Race

2/20/2007 9:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

As Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern battle it out in Florida over the baby and corpse of Anna Nicole Smith, Harry Connick Jr. added his sperm to the possible gene-pool of Dannielynn.

"I got big news ... I'm coming forward as the father of Anna Nicole's baby," Connick told the audience of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in an episode airing today. Ellen was definitely surprised by the "confession" and could barely keep her composure, laughing out loud as Connick joked around on the set adding, "And the crazy crazy thing is, the baby is Zsa Zsa Gabor's!"

Sure, he jests, but crazier things could happen with this case!
