Dannielynn Birkhead, the daughter of late Guess model and reality star Anna Nicole Smith, will turn three years old on Sept. 7 and OK! has learned that the adorable little girl will be celebrating the date with dad Larry Birkhead with a birthday bash this weekend in Kentucky.

It’s hard to believe it’s been three years since Anna Nicole announced on her Web site that she’d given birth to a baby girl in the Bahamas and that her lawyer Howard K. Stern was named as the father on the birth certificate.


Of course, Anna’s great new delivery was almost immediately tempered by the horrifying loss of her son Daniel on Sept. 10, 2006, in the same hospital Dannielynn had been born in only three days earlier.

Tragedy piled upon tragedy for the baby girl when Anna Nicole died five months later on Feb. 8, 2007, in her Florida hotel room, the victim of a lethal cocktail of prescription medications.

What ensued was one of the strangest and most public custody battles ever, with Stern fighting Dannielynn’s actual father Larry — and a whole host of other possible pops — in court and the media.

Ultimately, Larry was awarded custody of Dannielynn and changed her last name to Birkhead.

Since moving with Larry to his home in Kentucky, she’s undergone eye surgery and gone snorkeling in the Bahamas with her proud dad.
