Despite the long, drawn-out custody battle that finally reunited Larry Birkhead with his daughter Dannielynn Hope when she was seven months old, the proud father tells Life & Style that he looks forward to becoming a father again, albeit, most likely, in a more traditional fashion.

Sharing that his ideal type would be a woman who resembles actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, the 35-year-old is hopeful that he will meet the right person and start a family. "It would be tough for me to do it right now, but in a couple of years, definitely," reveals Larry. However, with little time to "get out there and date," Larry is keeping all of his options open.

"While I’d love to have another baby on my own, I’d be happy to adopt a little brother or sister for her."

Dannielynn, 2, is Larry Birkhead’s daughter with the late Anna Nicole Smith.

Anne on

She looks more like her daddy and obviously appears to be a happy child. Anna Nicole would be proud knowing that Dannielynn is well taken care of and probably moreso with him than with her had she lived.

Theres no way Dannielynn could be that big already! That’s crazy! She’s sooo tall.

She’s adorable and I’m so happy for the two of them :)

Sheri on

Dannielynn is just precious. She looks so much like her late mother Anna. She is a very stylish little girl. My hopes for her is that she grows up just being happy. I feel so bad for her loosing her mom. What a tragedy. Larry seems to be a terrifc father. All the pictures that you see of them they both are always smiling. Keep up the good work Larry. May God bless you both.

She’s a cutie. Larry needs to stop making a living off his daughter though. It’s ridiculous.

“While I’d love to have another baby on my own, I’d be happy to adopt a little brother or sister for her.”

Yeah, only cause he won’t be able to make any profit off of their pics like he can with Dannielynn!!!!!

Pure curiosity: How old is Dannielynn now? From the last pic I saw she was like 2 and now she looks so grown like a 3y old or am I missing something? Love the picture though! Cute pair! She looks like a happy child!

nat on

danni sure is a cutie she is also quite tall just like her mom i suppose.

brooke on

Dannielynn is gorgeous, my favorite out of all the 2yr old little girls like suri, violet, shiloh. She looks exactly like anna now, what a beautiful smile and eyes. Larry dresses her so nice, and he seems like a good dad

Stephany on

Wow, she’s getting so big! She looks so much like her mom. Very precious.

Nancy,she’s 2 years old. she was born September 7th,2006. my son is only a day older than her,so it’s pretty easy for me to remember her birthday. she definately looks older than 2 though

Anne on

You measure a child at 2 1/2 and double it. That will give you an idea of how tall or short they will be. My son is 6 ‘ 2″ and the measurement was 99% accurate.

Kelly on

Dannielynn has gotten so big already. She seems like such a happy little girl and I think Larry is doing a great job of raising her. That’s such a sweet and lovly photo of the two.

Christine on

She’s adorable, and she always looks so happy. It’s obvious that her Dad loves her a lot.

Courtney on

I believe Anna was something like 5’11 so she’s def gonna be tall…its gonna be a joy watching this little one grow up ;)

Jess on

Adore what she is wearing! Love the mix of pink and yellow…its so cute!

Dannielynn is too cute. She reminds me so much of her mummy, yet looks like her daddy.

I’m glad for her sake that she has a father who is so loving, caring and dedicated. It’s difficult and will be for her growing up without a mum but at least she has her dad.

Michelle on

She’s so cute and has gotten so big. She’s a definate combo of her two parents.

Pamela on

Anna is looking down at her and smiling.

Larry is a wonderful father.

Lauren on

What a GORGEOUS little girl! I can’t get over how beautiful she is. And Larry is such an amazing father! I hope that he does get to start dating and maybe meet and awesome woman.

Becky on

Anne – I have heard that before, but i have always heard the height at age 2, not 2 1/2. My daughter was 37 inches tall at her 2 year, so that would make her 6 feet as an adult. My husband and I are tall but not THAT tall. I am 5’9 and my hubby is 6ft so I am not sure if it is right, at least for my daughter. But we’ll see. Danni sure does look older than 2. Such a cutie!

Lilly on

She looks so tall! Larry had stated that she might need another eye surgery after she had her previous one, any word on that?

brooklyn on

Dannielynn is adorable! She looks a lot like her dad =)

CelebBabyLover on

AWWW, what a cutie! She definitely does look like Anna, but at the same time, I look at her and wonder how in the world anyone could have ever thought that she wasn’t Larry’s daughter!

I hope Larry is actually able to adopt if he chooses to. I know it’s really tough for single men to adopt in most countries.

Jeanine on

wow, what a gorgeous little girl she is turning out to be.. and its nice to see her smiling!

Lisa on

Formula for calculating height: For boys, double height at age 2. For girls: double height at age 18 months. My girls predictions were 5’2, 5’7″ and 5’4″….so far, the oldest two are right on track. Our son should be 6’2″ and he will probably achieve that height as well.

That said, Dannielynn is adorable, and while she looks like her mommy did, she also resembles her daddy. No denying that child is his, even without the dna testing.

noodlemonkey on

I read all of the comments and am DUMBFOUNDED that not a single person questioned Larry’s decision to allow his daughter to star in a reality show. Does anyone believe that a reality show is in Dannielynn’s best interest?!

Dannielynn is such a pretty little girl …. and her daddy is definitely handsome …. I dont’ see him having trouble finding a girlfriend.
