Washington, June 23 : Larry Birkhead splurged nearly 3,000 dollars at an auction for some old lingerie worn by the late Anna Nicole Smith in a Playboy shoot for his daughter Dannielynn.
Birkhead, who is the biological father of the tot, explained he paid 1,800 dollars for a pink bustier and 1,000 dollars for a white negligee because he wanted to give their 1-year-old daughter a keepsake of her mother.
"I have a lot of history I have to put together that she doesn't really know about. Playboy was such a big part of Anna's career," Usmagazine.com quoted him, as saying.
"You know, it's not something I can show today, but something down the road. It's not going to be in any bedtime stories anytime soon," he added.
The auction was held at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on June 21.
Birkhead was awarded sole custody of Danielynn after Smith died from an overdose of prescription drugs in February 2007.
