Dannielynn's Father Building Home For Needy Family In Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Dannielynn Birkhead's dad is returning to
his Kentucky hometown to build a house for a struggling single
mother.
Larry Birkhead says he identifies with the woman as a fellow
single parent. The Louisville native is raising Dannielynn, the
daughter of former model and actress Anna Nicole Smith, who died
just over a year ago.
Birkhead says he wanted to do something positive for the
community where he was raised. He is teaming with Habitat for
Humanity, the non-profit group that builds homes for the needy.
The single mother who will move into the house has three
children. Two suffer from spina bifida, a birth defect that affects
the spinal cord.
Birkhead says he will name the home for Dannielynn.
