Lawyers just announced the judge has made a ruling on who gets custody of Dannielynn, despite the fact that Larry Birkhead is the biological father.
Howard K. Stern just said “I am obviously very disappointed … I am not going to fight Larry Birkhead for custody.” Stern added, “I will do everything I can to make sure he gets sole custody.”
Howard K. Stern and Larry Birkhead hugged each other outside the courtroom. Stern said Birkhead was welcome to come to the house and spend as much time with baby Dannielynn as he wanted. Stern said he’d like the transition to be “gradual,” so the baby can adjust.
Larry Birkhead cannot take Dannielynn out of the Bahamas, until the custody issue is resolved. So, Stern has invited Larry to spend as much time as he wants at Horizons, where Stern is staying. Until Birkhead gets custody, he has no legal claim to the baby.
Virgie Arthur is expected to challenge the ruling. Her lawyer suggested she wants strings attached if Birkhead gets custody.
