Media Appearances

In 2012, Birkhead worked with Guess? to create a one-off campaign featuring Dannielynn. This move created some public backlash with critics claiming he was being exploitative since her mother had modeled for the same company in the 1990s. Birkhead explained that it was a way for his child to connect with her deceased mom. \

In 2014, Birkhead appeared on two reality television shows and opened up a bit about his life after Anna Nicole. He appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap where he traded lives with race car driver Helio Castroneves and later appeared on Millionaire Matchmaker with Patti Stanger.

Dannielynn Birkhead Inheritance

According to the latest court ruling, Dannielynn Birkhead will NOT receive any of the $450 million inheritance from J. Howard Marshall’s estate. Anna Nicole Smith claimed that the inheritance was promised to her by the late billionaire with a verbal agreement. After nearly 15 years of lawsuits that outlived J. Howard Marshall, Anna Nicole Smith and J. Howard Marshall’s son, an appeals court in Texas ruled that the billionaire never actually intended to leave everything to Smith.
