OK! was looking forward to bringing you exclusive coverage of Dannielynn Birkhead's first birthday party, planned for Sept. 8; however, in light of recent discoveries and for what we feel to be in Dannielynn's best interests, we regrettably have cancelled our plans. Editor-in-Chief Sarah Ivens has released the following statement regarding the matter.“OK! Magazine has uncovered explosive allegations regarding Larry Birkhead, Howard K. Stern and baby Dannielynn, prompting the magazine to cancel our exclusive coverage of Dannielynn’s first birthday party. OK! has been with Dannielynn since birth — bringing to the world her first meeting with her biological father and first Father’s Day. In keeping with that tradition, we very much looked forward to showing you her first birthday. However, the newly obtained allegations are detailed, shocking and potentially incriminating. Furthermore, it makes it impossible for OK!, in good conscience, to promote this family’s highly questionable relationship in our pages. Next week’s issue of OK! will bring all of the unfortunate, relevant details to light. It breaks my heart that OK! has to pull out of a shoot that would have chronicled the next great chapter of Dannielynn’s life. That sort of celebration is what the magazine enjoys most. But first and foremost, we — and I — care dearly about the well-being of the young one, and my moral obligation lies with her. So, it’s unfortunate, but at the moment, my biggest fear is that Larry and Howard may have tricked us all.”
