Anna Nicole Smith is expecting a little sugar pie.
According to the New York Daily News, Anna's sometime boyfriend Larry Birkhead, who is the father of the baby-in-progress, 'fessed up to new addition.
"I was told by [Anna's lawyer/BFF] Howard K. Stern to deny the pregnancy," Birkhead said from his home state of South Carolina. "But I'm not denying it anymore for legal, moral and ethical reasons. I'm not denying she's pregnant, and I'm not denying I'm the father.
So why was it a secret in the first place? Two reasons. 1) Anna Nicole stands to inherit $1.6 billion dollars from her later husband J. Howard Marshall's estate. If Anna's pregnant – and not married to the father -- it could work against her in court. Make her look like some type of maneater. 2) Larry's friend suggests that Howard is in love with Anna.
"He's in love with her," a friend of Smith's claims. "He is jealous that she is pregnant by another man." Birkhead claims Stern has been bullying him to keep his mouth shut.
I can totally see Howard being in love with Anna… he had all the signs during Anna's reality show.
