Birkhead — who had a romantic relationship with Smith — says the late star “always wanted a little girl.” Want all the latest pregnancy and birth announcements, plus celebrity mom blogs?

Birkhead, 44, now works as a photographer and flips houses for a living, and he’s largely raised his daughter out of the Hollywood glare. “People think [Dannielynn] has got millions and millions of dollars,” he says. “She came home and asked me where the money was, and I said, ‘I’m still looking for it.’ If Dannielynn is to inherit anything via her mom that she was entitled to, so be it, but it’s not like we’re sitting around waiting for one thing to happen.” 20/20‘s special, Anna Nicole Smith: Beauty Lost airs on Friday, February 10 on ABC.
