Anna Nicole Smith who passed away last year and a former playboy bunny died without a clear cause to the public. She died living with a great sum of money, living her family in question on who will have the luck of taking her fortune. But last Tuesday, the ordeal was resolved, a Los Angeles judge not only made 18-month-old Dannielynn Hope the sole heir, but also set up a trust in the girl's name. The child's father, Larry Birkhead, and Anna Nicole Smith's executor, Howard K. Stern, will be co-trustees.

Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff granted a petition filed by Howard Stern, who wanted to clarify Anna Nicole Smith's intentions toward her daughter. Anna Nicole Smith drafted a will in 2001 - five years before the child was born - that left her estate to her then only child, Daniel. However, it said the assets in Daniel's trust should be shared equally if she had future children.

Daniel was 20 when he died in 2006, three days after Dannielynn was born."We and Mr. Stern always believed that Anna Nicole never intended to disinherit her daughter," Howard Stern's lawyer, Bruce S. Ross, said after the hearing. "I'm pleased to say this chapter in the saga is closed."

Dannielynn could inherit millions of dollars if the estate wins an ongoing court fight over the oil fortune of Anna Nicole Smith's late second husband, J. Howard Marshall. Anna Nicole Smith at one point won a $474 million judgment but it was eventually reduced to zero. In 2006, the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated her claim, but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote that Marshall didn't include anything for Smith in his will.
