Birkhead was born on September 7, 2006 in Nassau, Bahamas, to mother, Anna Nicole Smith. This was followed by the death of her half-brother, Daniel Wayne Smith, three days later. Soon after, questions on Birkhead’s paternity were raised.
Birkhead’s mother had named Howard K. Stern, an attorney, as her daughter’s father in the birth certificate.
