A Los Angeles-area photographer and a native of Louisville, KY, Larry Birkhead is best known to the public as the onetime lover of the late Anna Nicole Smith, and the father of her baby, Dannielynn. Birkhead and Smith reportedly met at Louisville's famous Barnstable Brown derby event in 2003, four years before Smith's death. In 2007, DNA tests validated Birkhead's paternity claims and opened the door for him to assume custody of Dannielynn.
