The photojournalist claiming to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby daughter has wrecked the newlywed's Bahamian bliss by revealing the model/actress wanted to marry him earlier this summer (06). After learning Smith wed her longtime attorney HOWARD K STERN, who is also claiming to be the father of baby DANNILYNN, in a spiritual ceremony in the Bahamas yesterday (28SEP06), LARRY BIRKHEAD went public with his own wedding shocker. Appearing on last night's (28SEP06) US news show The Insider, Birkhead said, "She (Anna Nicole) wanted me to go shopping for wedding rings for her just a couple of weeks before she took off (to the Bahamas) and I said no because we were not getting along. "She wanted it (marriage) for the wrong reasons, she wanted it because she was pregnant." As for the shocking news that she wed, less than three weeks after the death of her 20-year-old son DANIEL, Birkhead feels sure that his ex has been desperate to give up the single life for some time. He adds, "I do truly believe that she wants a family." Then, on another news show, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, Birkhead revealed Stern has been out to keep him away from Smith ever since she started dating the photographer. He adds, "I was told that I'm not the celebrity and my picture and my face is not to be shown... Howard told Anna that he'd never accept me as a father, that he hates me. He's sent Anna into tears before."
