Quote of the Day - Maternity is a matter of fact, paternity is a matter of opinion. - American proverb

“I’m Not The Father Of Anna Nicole’s Baby - That I Know Of”

Feb. 16, 2007 - A lawyer in Newport Beach has set the record straight.  He's not the father of Anna Nicole's baby, DannielLynn Hope Marshall Stern.  His name doesn't appear on the birth certificate, and even though he lives near LA and has seen Anna Nicole's pictures on television, he claims the last time he was in the Bahamas was on his honeymoon some twenty-five years ago.  "Or was it Bermuda? I always get the two mixed up," Lawyer J. Craig Williams said.

The media's been hounding him to come forward, but he claims to have denied requests to appear on Larry King Live and Oprah.  "We're tremendously disappointed that Craig won't come on Larry's show and claim that he's not the father, but we'll just have to cover the rest of the story without him," sources close to CNN reported.

Williams pleads, "A judge somewhere needs to pick the baby's father soon because we're running out of candidates."  Allegedly, since Anna Nicole Smith has shaken hands with so many men, there's an almost unlimited number of possibilities.  "Several of the seventeen men now in contention for DannielLynn's fatherhood have laid claim to her paternity based on shaking hands with Anna Nicole," said Joe Doaks, a spokesperson for Fathers Without Children, a non-profit group based in Utah.   "After all, shaking hands is how women become pregnant," Doaks observed. 

The non-father, Williams, has refused to provide a DNA sample.  Law enforcement authorities are threatening to go to court to get an order forcing him to provide his DNA.  "California established paternity law in the Lee Marvin case, and it looks like we may have to do it again and get this guy's DNA so we can put this issue to bed once and for all," according to an anonymous spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff.

For his part, Williams hopes "the whole thing goes away," his firm reported.
