Quote:" US commentators are saying that Anna Nicole's five-month-old daughter, having been born in the Bahamas, is a Bahamian, and, therefore, Bahamian law will have to govern her future.
Unless, some other permit has been "fast tracked", this unfortunate infant is not a Bahamian. If she had been born before July 9, 1973 she would have been. However, after Independence, any child born in the Bahamas of foreign parents does not get Bahamian citizenship. But, within a period of 12 months after her eighteenth birthday, she can, upon application, be registered as a citizen of the Bahamas.
As she was born out of wedlock, she would have her mother's nationality, which is American. Her putative*(sic) father, Howard Stern, is also American, therefore, there is no question about her nationality. And as an American citizen should she decide at the age of 18 to apply for Bahamian citizenship, she will have to renounce her American citizenship before she can be registered.
US commenatators are also mulling over the Smith-Stern marriage.
At the time local press were told that the ceremony was just a "commitment ceremony" - not a marriage recognised by Bahamian law - to distract Anna Nicole from the tragic death of her son.
Again a life lived in turmoil, has ended in more turmoil and it appears that it will take lawyers many years to sort it all out."

taken by her mother. I am surprised the authorities did not
take Danni Lynn into special medical care immediately.
As she is American why can the US not demand that the child
has a DNA test so that her biological father, or Grandmother
can care for her?

Howard K Stern, is the person named on the Bahamian Birth
Certificate as the father of Danni Lynn.
Over the weekend I have heard Stern described on FoxNews
as “a rattlesnake in a suit”.
Stern was slithering close by when both Daniel Smith
and Anna Nicole Smith died.
He says he did everything he could to help them.
The custody battle for the baby girl starts today in the Bahamas.
A simple DNA test will say who the biological father is.
Stern is refusing to let Danni Lynn take the test.
I wonder why.
It will be interesting to see what the Bahamas Court says.
