Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter officially her heir

Dannielynn Smith is officially the heir of her late mother Anna Nicole Smith, according to a court ruling yesterday. Anna Nicole’s will had only listed her late son Daniel as a heir, but it also stated that her fortune should be divided equally between any other future children. The AP reports:

Dannielynn could inherit millions of dollars if the estate wins an ongoing court fight over the oil fortune of Smith’s late second husband, J. Howard Marshall. Smith at one point won a $474 million judgment but it was eventually reduced to zero. In 2006, the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated her claim, but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote that Marshall didn’t include anything for Smith in his will.

It’s comforting to know that whether or not Dannielynn becomes the richest baby on two wheels, her daddy Larry Birkhead will always love her – by pimping her out for tabloid photo shoots so he never has to work again. Damn, that’s touching. It kind of makes me want to call my dad and tell him I love him. *yells upstairs* DAD! HEY, DAD! I LOVE YOU, MAN! MOVE OUT? HA! YOU OLD SOFTIE! GET DOWN HERE AND GIVE ME A HUG! Hey, Pop – wow, that’s a gun.
