Just when you think the paternity battle for the late Anna Nicole Smith's baby girl couldn't be more complicated, a fifth potential father comes along.

Her bodyguard has now said there is a possibility that he could be the daddy of her five-month-old baby girl Dannielynn after a two-year secret relationship.

Speaking on US television show Extras, bodyguard Alex Denk admitted that children had not been ruled out while together saying: "She always told me she wanted to have kids with me."

Although Mr Denk said that he wasn't sure that he was the father he confessed that "there's always a possibility".

And it seems he's not the only one who thinks that. Ms Smith's partner and lawyer Howard Stern, whose name is on the birth certificate, claims to be the daddy alongside former partner Larry Birkhead and Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt.

Bizzarrely, Ms Smith's sister also thinks Dannielynn could be the result of the preserved sperm of the oil giant J. Howard Marshall Ms Smith controversially married in 1994.

Former Playboy bunny, Ms Smith was found to be "unresponsive" in her Floridian hotel room on Thursday and was later pronounced dead in hospital although it is not yet known what caused her death. The reality television star, 39, lost her twenty-year-old son Daniel in September to an overdose of Zoloft, Lexapro and methadone.

Her five-month-old baby girl, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, was born just three days before the death of Daniel.
