On the certificate, issued by the Registrar General's office in Nassau, The Bahamas, the child is identified as Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, born on Sept. 7 in the Doctors Hospital in Nassau on the island of New Providence.
Stern, who has been Smith's longtime attorney and confidante, said during a Sept. 26 Larry King Live appearance that he is the baby's father. "Based on the timing of it, there shouldn't be a doubt (of the paternity)," he said.
However, photographer Larry Birkhead, who alleges he had a relationship with Smith in California, also claims to be the father of the newborn, and has filed papers in a California court to establish paternity of the child.
