Birkhead and Baby Back in Larry's Old Kentucky Home

5/1/2007 6:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Birkhead is back -- finally -- on American soil with baby Dannielynn, and it sounds like he's ready to have some fun and, for his sake, eat some home cookin'

A distinctly gaunt Birkhead touched down in his hometown Louisville airport not long ago, and told our friends at WDRB FOX 41 in Louisville, "It just feels good to be home," adding that he's ready to "relax and horse around," which was appropriate enough given this Saturday's Kentucky Derby. He said he'll be heading to the Barnstable Brown party on Friday, which has particular meaning for him -- and his daughter -- as it's where he first met Anna Nicole Smith.

Birkhead shed a few tears as he spoke to reporters, but kept his baby, who has spent her entire life thus far in the Bahamas, shielded from view. He also wouldn't reveal whether he'll be staying in Louisville with Dannielynn, where his mother lives, or take her to his home base in Los Angeles.

"This is one pit stop," joked Birkhead.

I have read many of these entries and have been disappointed that no one has mentioned the one thing that has struck me about Larry Birkhead is his extreme classiness and grace under fire. From the very beginning of all this circus, every time each of the players was interviewed, all but Larry (including his sleazy ex attorney) were in it for the money or the fame or both except for Larry. He truly seemed appalled at the publicity, saddened at the loss of Anna Nicole, and interested only in the welfare of his daughter and in obtaining custody of his daughter. At the funeral, his remarks were classy and understated and were not aimed at making his case, unlike HKSterns. His relationship with HKStern has also seemingly been forged only in the best interest of a smooth transition for Daniellynn so that she isn't traumatized for life by an abrupt change in caregivers (something that can cause Attachment disorder at this critical age). I hope he triumphs over his ex attorney, triumphs over Virgie Arthur, and is able to enjoy as much of a normal life with his daughter as will be possible given their celebrity. And who gives a damn how much money he makes or where it comes from ... more power to him if he is able to accumulate funds now to support her later -- it isn't hurting a small baby to have pictures taken of her, as she is unaware of what is going on. Good luck, Larry -- from the moment I saw a picture of that baby I knew she was yours and that the DNA tests would prove it as she has your eyes. I hope you can help her understand that her mother was very mixed up but would have loved her if she had lived, and I hope that the media will leave you alone enough for you to be able to give that sweet thing a normal life.

I loved Anna. Im happy for both Larry and DannieLynn now. But am I the only one that has "thought" that mabey Anna might had left Larry because he's gay? It just seems this might be a closet secret that comes out-look for this. It's came out in some blogs and he does seem a litte bit .....well, you know.
