Friday's development in the Anna Nicole Smith story was the release of a will that Smith apparently signed in July 2001, naming her son Daniel as the sole heir. Daniel was scheduled to begin receiving distributions at age 21, but did not, due to being dead. Daniel died, oddly enough, at age 20, just before he would have started getting money and just three days after similarly-named newer baby and potential heir Dannielynn was born. And potential heir Dannielynn may have been fathered by Smith attorney and sex partner Howard K. Stern, who was named as the executor of Smith's estate in the 2001 will. (Someone else drafted the will, at least, as you can see if you really want to read it.)
But the will may or may not exclude Dannielynn entirely, since it was never updated to include her and it states at one point that Smith was intentionally omitting to provide for any future spouses or children. The will does instruct the executor of the estate to distribute to the children "sufficient sums for their health, education, and support," but that would not give any of the principal to the baby. If the will is valid, and with Daniel dead, that may mean that Smith has no living heir at all, and that means the main beneficiary may be Court TV.
Also, I left out another contender in the baby-daddy contest: Alexander Denk, Smith's former bodyguard. Denk told Larry King this week that he (Denk, not Larry King) could be the father. I think that brings it to six, with two alternates, but I'm starting to lose count.
