Anyone with eyes and a heart could take one look at this precious child and see the perfect combination of features,coloring,profile,etc. of both Anna & Larry..She is truly a little baby doll! I wish all the involved parties peace of mind and that the highest good for everyone-especially the baby and her Mother and brother's souls be at peace--Even in death--they are all clamoring over Anna's body--Alive, she was a tortured soul--Both her Mother and missing Father abused her spiritually as a child and she fought to survive in the only way she knew how--hopefully lessons will be learned all around and Dannilynn will have a loving life-one that Anna never had. Blessings to everyone! M.A.

One thing I forgot to bring up is can they test the baby at this young age for damage from all the drugs, etc.? I pray that the Lord spared her any lasting damage but in the real world sometimes the long term effects may not be known for a while. I don't think her little body would show the actual drugs in her system at this late stage after birth but they are bound to have affected her brain, lungs, heart, etc. Let's pray NOT!

Larry... "caring father", "nice guy"??? Come on people... he is just as much a mercenary as the rest of them. All it takes is for somebody to LOOK like they really care... let's give the baby to Scott Peterson while we are at it... he looks like a caring guy and he could be the babydaddy.

Let's get the body in the ground and then sort through all the mushroom-induced haze of daddy-wannabes. I don't know about you folks but I believe the closest this baby can get to having its real mother is Britney... she is an rich, experienced, tailer-trash mother who seems to have the same maternal instincts as ANS... she's as good a choice as anyone "interested" in custody of the child currently.

Thank God!, maybe this thing can finally get solved I pray that Larry Birkhead get's custody if that little girl. Howard K. Stern SHOULD NOT BE ANYWERE NEAR HER!!!!!, the reason for this is this man and I will most likely get some beef for it but I think if he ends up being the biological father he will kill that little girl, she will have a death sentence written out for her. These are strong words I know but this man should never ever be near that girl EVER!!!!.

Re: Post # 15 RAR1234 ---

You are absolutely right! ANS and HKS were "Baby Daddy" shopping!! They were trying to generate income! They picked the wrong Daddy!

Yeah Birkhead - you are a real man! HKS: take lessons from Birkhead, he can teach you how to be a man, not a mouse and a mooch.

How sad this whole media circus has become. Since I highly doubt any other commenters know either of Danny's potential birth-fathers, perhaps you should hope that whoever would give her the best home and chance for a normal life is her father. This little girl's life begins with the loss of her mother, and under any circumstances, that is heartbreaking. How cruel to suggest that Anna's recently deceased son fathered her child. Whatever the case is, the truth has a way of coming to light and at some point, Danny will know her biological father, and hopefully, that man will be a good man. Hopefully, that man will give her a loving, stable home, and fill her head only with good things about her mother. What it boils down to is the child. She is really all that matters in this - that she is loved, nurtured, and cared for. Who cares about the mudslinging and money? All those things diminish in time, but this child is here to stay and will have to live its life with all this drama in its past.

I hope that this all comes to a peaceable calm very, very soon and that that INNOCENT, DEFENSELESS baby finds herself in the arms of someone who wants nothing but her welfare... regrardless of whether or not she comes with a paycheck.

There is no justice if that bastard HK$ gets away w/ this mess.

Hopefully strength in numbers will force the Bahamian government to request
a DNA test on DannieLynn.
And ultimately for Larry to get custody of his daughter.

HOWARD IS THE ONLY FATHER THAT DANIELYN KNOWS, He was appointed guardian of Daniel and therefore becomes guardian of Daniellyn. Howard will not touch the babys money. He is the only one who truly loved Anna Nicole!!!!!!!!!

How can all you people decide WHO the father is, When No one Knows for sure who the biological father is.

Because Larry say's he is the father that makes him the father??? I think NoT!

So before everyone decides that Larry is the father or Howard is the father, why dont you get proof before opening your mouth.

Also to call HOWARD a KILLER without any evidence is RIDICULOUS!! SO he is guilty until proven innocent???

That just shows me that there really is no JUSTICE system in AMERICA!
I just hope and PRAY that the people who like to form their opinoins and talk without facts, dont ever have to be a jury member.

REMEMBER the law states that you are INNOCENT until PROVEN GUILTY!!!

A charming smile and people will believe anything you say I guess... it used to take awhile for background checks and reference checks to see if they were fit parents... now it seems a few appearances on E! and you're good to go. You even have people wanting to raise petitions and send them to foreign officials to plead their case... WOW! It's all about how we appear on camera now that makes us good parents

I have followed this from day 1. I feel for the judge. He had a hard job and tried his best to do what was right. As the mother of an only child and a son I felt that Anna should be with her son. And if Larry B. is the father he and the grandmother can share raising Dannielynn. Larry really cared more than the others and makes his own money he is not the gold digger that the rest are
Everyone needs to work together for this lady. And the child....

oprah rox!!    

Her son purposely overdosed after being told that he is the father of this new baby...now isnt that twisted? So much drama around this whole thing ever since the sons death, so much will be resolved once that DNA test is done. I just hope that baby is healthy and placed in good hands.
Who knows, maybe the DNA test will reveal that she is a princess afterall !! Zsa Zsa may not be too happy about that !
