Transcript for Larry Birkhead opens up about relationship with Anna Nicole Smith
Back now with Anna Nicole Smith's never before love story with Larry birkhead the father of her daughter live with the first look at a new episode of the documentary series "Hopelessly in love." We welcome you. Good to see you. It's been a long time. Thank you. I remember talking to you long ago about this. 2007 when Anna Nicole passed away. Dannielynn was just 5 months old. You never talked about the love story between you and Ang that Nicole until now. Why did you decide to do it. For so long I had people kind of telling my story and this kind of presented a unique opportunity where they said, you know, this is an opportunity to tell it from your perspective and I said, are you sure you got the right people because our love story was so up and down and it had so many things combined in but it was a two-year affair that people didn't really know about and I think the biggest misconception is that most people thought that I was like the winner of some DNA lottery from a one-night stand with Anna Nicole and it was a long-term relationship. You say that we will see things in in that will surprise us and that have never been seen before as up as this story was covered. Well, you know, I was surprised because there were things in there I had never seen before and went back through the vaults of all the tapes and archives and you'll hear -- you'll see the first time I met Anna at the Kentucky derby pear and you'll see kind of when sparks flew and then you'll also hear about when dishes flew and everything else in between. Sounds like it was tumultuous. It was crazy but, you know, and you'll also hear Anna for the first time publicly acknowledge that we were in a relationship because I didn't get that. We didn't have a relationship where we did red carpets and things like that. I was always behind the scenes so it was important for me not to just share with the audience and the viewers but also to hope that my daughter sees this one day. Exactly who is now 13 years old. It's hard to believe. It's crazy. So let's take a little look at "Hopelessly in love." You look at how bad Anna wanted a little girl. You look at everything that she wanted in life and I'm trying to still to this day kind of give my daughter things that I would think that would make her proud. There's graduations and there's honor roll and there's all these achievements that dannielynn has and it's super exciting and it's just you think about what it would be like if her mom was here. Has dannielynn watched the documentary? Well, you know what, I was -- it was a long process of working editing and she would come in in the middle of me doing editing. Let me show you the clip, the first time your mom and I met at the derby party and she came in and was peeking around the corner and she goes, turn that off. Turn that off. She was my biggest critic but I caught her peeking a few times and it's something she probably can't watch today but I hope I can put that in a box for her to -- along with the warehouse of size 10 shoes and dresses and everything else and hope she can watch it someday. All right. Well, thank you for sharing. Larry, good to see you. We wish you and dannielynn nothing but the best. Watch "Hopelessly in love," it premieres Friday Here now with John and
