Could a technicality force a DNA test to prove who the real father of Anna Nicole Smith's daughter is? A Bahamian lawyer claims that the 6-month-old baby's birth certificate is invalid, because it was signed by the wrong party. Godfrey "Pro" Pinder told the Freeport News in an exclusive interview Sunday that although Howard K. Stern is named as the father on the certificate, attorney Dion Smith Jr. signed his name where Stern's signature should have gone. "In America, the lawyer puts his name there, but in The Bahamas either a parent, someone who witnessed the birth, the midwife, or someone who lives in the house where the baby was born must sign there." If lawyers in the case discover this, said Pinder, they can ask that a new birth certificate be drawn up, and request a DNA test to show who the father is. A hearing in the custody case is set for March 16. Both Smith's ex-boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, and Stern claim to be the baby's father. Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, also has filed for custody of the baby.
Why couldn't they have found that error earlier, it would've made life so much easier on so many people. And looks like the Bahamian is government is not a fan of Howard K Stern if they are coming forward with this now knowing what it all means.
