MSNBC is reporting that today’s hearing in the dispute over custody of baby Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead has concluded with a Bahamian judge declaring that Larry Birkhead can, indeed, return to the United States with his daughter. The ruling is a defeat for Dannielynn’s grandmother Virgie Arthur, who reportedly hoped to keep the baby in the Bahamas until a shared custody agreement could be reached with Larry.
As soon as Dannielynn’s passport can be corrected with her new name, she is free to leave the island she has thus far called home. When asked if Larry would be in the Bahamas this weekend, Larry answered ‘no,’ according to MSNBC’s Donna Gregory. When asked if Dannielynn knows that he is her father, Larry reportedly said:
Yes, and I have the love marks to prove it.
