Smith Staged Surprise Ceremony To Help With Grief

LATEST: Reality star ANNA NICOLE SMITH decided to hold a "commitment ceremony" with lawyer and confidant HOWARD K STERN in order to bring a bit of happiness into her life after being devastated by the death of her son. Smith and Stern exchanged vows 28 September (06) on a boat off the coast of the Bahamas' Paradise Island, just weeks after Smith's 20-year-old son DANIEL died in her hospital room. Stern announced that he was the father of Smith's new baby daughter on LARRY KING LIVE on 26 September (06), despite claims by Los Angeles photographer LARRY BIRKHEAD that he is the father. The couple, along with Smith's three-week-old daughter, slipped aboard the catamaran Margaritaville where they were joined by a Baptist minister and close friends. At around 3pm, Stern, dressed in a black dress suit and white shirt, and Smith, holding a bouquet of red roses, exchanged vows and Bible verses - as well as temporary rings, because the real rings weren't ready in time for the ceremony. According to Smith's Nassau attorney MICHAEL SCOTT, "They needed a little adrenaline boost because things have been so hectic and devastating in their life recently. "This was the first time I had seen Anna come out of her grief for a moment." Guests toasted the couple with champagne and apple cider, before indulging in Kentucky Fried Chicken, which was delivered by boat to the wedding party. According to DYNASTY star JOHN JAMES, who was a guest at the ceremony, "It was fun and Anna was smiling. Howard and Anna were both crying and kissing and holding hands. "It was kind of sad and happy at the same time."
