In a mid afternoon news conference, Larry Birkhead stood before the media and said "I told you so."
A court in the Bahamas has ruled that Birkhead's DNA matches the infant child of Anna Nicole Smith, Dannielynn Marshall Stern.
Smith's partner and attorney, Howard K. Stern, said he would not fight Birkhead for custody. He said he would now make sure Birkhead received sole custody of Dannielynn, implying that the child's maternal grandmother, Vergie Arthur, should not be allowed to have any part in raising the child.
Arthur told reporters that she is thrilled that her granddaughter now knows who her father is, and looks forward to working with Birkhead in raising Dannielynn.
