"It's different than a normal situation," admits Birkhead, now 43, of getting Dannielynn to terms with her famous mother's life cut short. "I make it as normal as I can."

Larry Birkhead has purchased a 10,000-sq.-ft., six-bedroom house in his hometown of Louisville, Ky., for himself and 21-month-old daughter Dannielynn, he tells PEOPLE.
Birkhead, 35, says the house, which has 40-ft. ceilings and is modeled after a Sicilian church, was never completed, needs a lot of work, and right now "looks like a haunted house," but he loves it.
"When I walked in, I said to myself, 'This is our home!'" says Birkhead.
He adds he might sell the Los Angeles house where he's surrounded by memories of its former occupants – Dannielynn's mother, Anna Nicole Smith, and half-brother Daniel, who both died from drug-related complications.
