With a crowd of photographers snapping away, a smiling Larry Birkhead arrived to a Bahamian court just moments ago to fight for custody of his daughter Dannielynn.

Anna Nicole Smith's estranged mother, Virgie Arthur, is also expected to arrive shortly. It is unknown if Howard K. Stern will attend.

The hearing is set to begin at 2:30 PM EDT.

"Arthur's lawyer said she would fight for joint custody if talks fail."

Where is that disgusting women getting money from for all these lawyers & her travels back & forth to the Bahamas?
Larry shouldn't give her a penny. She should be ashamed of herself.

Larry, once you are 'OFFICIALLY awarded custody, go straight to horizons and GET YOUR CHILD. Tell Stern to stick the transition up his ASS. He's kept your daughter away from you LONG ENOUGH!!!! He's still trying to control everything!!!

Larry is a wimp if he allows Virgie to bully him into joint custody! He doesn't have the balls to stand up to her!! He should honor Anna Nicole's wishes..after all she is the baby's mother!

To #9 -
You say Larry shouldn't have gotten her P.G. Well, you know, in a perfect world that is true. However, when people are in love they tend to believe that the people they love will change. Of course, if you are standing back at a distance you realize this person will never change, but when you are the one involved you don't always see that.

He did what he did, and while it may not have been the smartest thing to do, at least he has always been willing to take responsibility for his child.

You sound like a very bitter person. Here is a man who has been willing to stand up to the plate, has done everything by the book and yet you are willing to condemn him. Must be nice to be as perfect as you and never make a mistake!

Why can't you people see that Virgie's lawyer, O'quinn, is in it for the long haul. He wants Virgie to be the guardian and the guardian will control the dough and THAT is WHEN drunken O'quinn gets his dough.

I am so glad the worst is over! We know who fathered the mean spirited Annas baby!
SHe was as mean as a snake! I've seen her show, seen how she treated everybody and anybody who didnt agree with her. God forbid to get in a "slug-bug" contest with her mean ass!

I am sorry she let the drugs gets the best of her. But Larry deserves a chance at fathering this child. For the babys sake, let her life have some normalcy to it!

IMHO Grannie needed to file for custody to insure that the baby did NOT go to Stern. Even though Birkhead is the daddy, in the Bahamas, Stern still could have gotten custody/guardianship. By filing for guardianship custody, she insures that she has a shot at the baby, IF STERN decided to change his mind (now) and try to get custody, etc. It is obvious to me that she wants to be in the child's life and doesn't want custody if LB is the dad, has custody of the child and lets her see the baby from time to time. A lot of this is legal jockeying that is required to get where you ultimately want. Sometimes you have to file petitions for things you don't want in order to get what you do. Sound confusing? It is. I am a family law attorney admitted in two states for over 25 years. That's why they pay lawyers the big bucks.
