Larry Birkhead is opening up about his relationship with Anna Nicole Smith.
On Tuesday, Birkhead appeared on “Good Morning America” to reveal a new Lifetime documentary, “Hopelessly in Love: Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead” about his affair with the late Playboy model.
“For so long I had people kind of telling my story,” Birkhead said. “They said, ‘This is an opportunity to tell it from your perspective and I said, ‘Are you sure you got the right people? Because our love story was so up and down.'”
Birkhead and Smith had one child together, with a public custody battle resolved by a paternity test proving he was the father.
The documentary will feature never-before-seen moments with the couple.
“We went back through the vaults and of all the tapes and archives… you’ll see when sparks flew and you’ll also hear about when dishes flew and everything else in between,” Birkhead teased.
“You’ll also hear Anna for the first time publicly acknowledge that we were in a relationship because I didn’t get that,” he added. “I was always behind the scenes so it was important for me. Not just to share it with the audience and the viewers but also to hope that my daughter sees this one day.”
Smith died in February 2007 at the age of 39, only five months after the birth of her daughter.
