EXCLUSIVE: Virgie Visits Baby Dannielynn

2/28/2007 9:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Virgie Arthur, Anna Nicole Smith's mother, visited her granddaughter last night in the Bahamas for the first time, and TMZ has obtained an exclusive photo of Grandma Virgie after the encounter.

Sources tell TMZ that Arthur arrived at Horizons, the Nassau house where Howard K. Stern is looking after the child, around 8 PM last night, and left about 50 minutes later. We're told she looked and acted "distraught" upon leaving, and was accompanied by a bodyguard and a driver, as well as a brunette woman described as a "relative."

Just a couple days ago, Larry Birkhead, who claims to be the father of Dannielynn, met the baby for the first time, also at Horizons. Lawyers for the parties will be in court in Florida this morning to present arguments concerning the future disposition of Anna NIcole's body.

#12- I agree with you..I don't know what to think, either. Seems everyone has some sort of an agenda/strategy due to all the lies and deceit. I just hope this child is united with her natural father and can start living a life with some honesty and love..Blessings to the baby..

Can someone explain if Virgie wants temporary custody until the real father is determined or is she actually trying to get full custody even when the biological father is known?

Thanks!!

Your'e Fired!    

......Tell me, Why would Virgie get the baby? Did She father this child? NOOO!
The baby belongs with her father....Larry Birkhead is doing the right thing trying to find out (actually prove) the he is the father. Stern is just holding on to the money bag aka Dannielynn. Virgie, YOUR child is dead....There are no "Do-Overs" in this situation! Time to go home.....Don't mess up your chances of seeing her when she gets turned over to Birkhead.....Life would just be repeating its self. Go Home!!! This is a horrible mess! Bury Anna-Nicole....Virgie, Go home!!!!......Larry, change your daughters name!!!!! And disappear for a time.....Somebody....ARREST Stern....He is a crook!!!!

No. 10: you obviously know nothing about the foster care system. Sure, there are good foster homes, but I know there are terrible ones. My husband lived in foster homes till he got a permanent foster home at age 8. From 4 years old till 8, he was shuffled around. I woudln't wish my worst enemy to have been in foster homes. As for Dannielynn, she should be with Larry or if Larry(somehow) isn't the bio dad, to be with Virgie, Dannielynn's next blood relative. Go Team Birkhead!!!

SOME COPS ARE CROOKED! THIS IS ONE APARENTLY!

13. The woman was a deputy sheriff for 28 years, so she surely has some redeeming qualities. Has anyone except me noticed that the only time you heard ANS bashing her Mama was when ANS was doped up (which apparently was 75% of her life)? And what if anything did Virgie ever take from ANS when she got wealthy? NOTHING except what ANS gave her, so she may not be so "money grubbing" as some people say. Their relationship fell apart when ANS started living the drugged up life. What Mama is going to sit by & condone that kind of lifestyle for their child? Especially when the Mama deals with criminals in her occupation. I think we should give Virgie a break.

Vickie Lynn didn't reject her past. She held on to her birth given name throughout her life. Vickie Lynn is her legal name on all of her legal documents. She gave her own middle name to her daughter. If Vickie Lynn left her past behind, how difficult would it have been to have her name legally changed to Anna Nicole? Virgie wants Vickie Lynn back, not Anna Nicole. The only time that you hear the anger in Vickie Lynn was after her son died, and Vickie Lynn's being upset about her mother's words. It is human nature to have bad feelings when someone died about comments said, wasn't said, what someone did, didn't do. It is how humans divert attention from their true feelings the immensed grief. Give Virgie the body, Larry the child, and the Marshall Family their money, and Howard gets to keep all of the court cases!

Reply to #13....Who gives a $%@#@^ that she worked in law enforcement. They are the ones that you have to question. Secondly, did you NOT see the woman absolutely LIE under oath? She contradicted herself more than once and used the sympathy card/tears to give her time to think of a better lie. Which to me, was the funniest thing I ever saw. She was busted and had no way out. Reply to Michelle #7....How about she is rolling over in her refridgerator/morgue...lol...Regardless, this is the saddest situation I have ever seen. This woman is dead and the vultures are all swarming to get to her. She was a person regardless of what she might have taken, etc. She was physically/sexually abused and her behaviour demonstrates that. Guess Virgie wasnt playing "cop" on those days, huh?
