Larry Birkhead and his 2-year-old daughter, Dannielynn, are moving out of Dannielynn’s mom Anna Nicole Smith’s house, and Larry spoke with Life&Style about why.
On why he brought Dannielynn to Anna’s home: “There were just tons and tons of memories. Anna’s reality show was taped here, and it’s the place she called home. After she passed, I just couldn’t bear to part with it.”
On what made him decide to sell the house: “You know, I always said I’d never sell, but the longer we’ve been here, the more I’ve realized it’s not built for children. We live over a canyon, and while the view’s great, there’s no backyard. I’ve bought Dannielynn every toy under the sun, but they can’t replace a yard. She doesn’t have a place to have her friends over to play.”

On where they’re moving to: “I’ve already seen one house in the Calabasas area that I really liked. It’s a little farther out in LA than we are now, so it’s less crazy. And there are tons of children in the neighborhood. It seems very kid-friendly.”
On if they’re definitely staying in California: “We’ll travel back and forth between here and Kentucky, where I’m from. I bought a 10,000-square-foot house in Louisville, near my family. I’ve thought about moving there permanently at some point, when it’s time to find a good school for Dannielynn. That will be on the horizon soon.”
On if the entire closet of Anna’s clothing, accessories and jewelry he has is a way of preserving her memory for Dannielynn: “Yes. Every piece in there has a story. Someday, I hope to show them all to Dannielynn and tell her what event her mom wore them to and what they meant to her – from the casual T-shirts to the fancy dresses. I want her to understand how beautiful and glamorous her mom was.”
On if there’s anything in particular he’s looking forward to passing on: “Anna and I wore necklaces with matching crosses. The one I’m wearing now, Anna was wearing when she passed away. I never take it off. I have the other one that matches it. Someday, I’ll give it to Dannielynn.”
