Anna Nicole Smith's will was filed by Howard K. Stern yesterday (14.05.07).

Anna Nicole's former lover and lawyer filed the papers - naming him as the will's executor - at a Los Angeles probate court, stating her total assets to be worth $710,000.

The will - which was drawn up in April 2001 - leaves everything to Anna Nicole's son Daniel who died last September of an accidental overdose in the Bahamas.

Daniel, 20, was visiting his mother just days after she had given birth to daughter Dannielynn when he died.

Anna Nicole's ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead, 34, was proven by DNA test results to be the father of eight-month-old Dannielynn on April 10.

Anna Nicole died on February 8 from an accidental overdose at Florida's Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Meanwhile, Birkhead filed a separate petition at a Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday formally requesting to be named as guardian of Dannielynn's estate.

Los Angeles probate attorney Allan Cutrow said: "What this means - if granted - is that Stern as the executor will have to deal with Birkhead on any matters pertaining to Anna Nicole's estate.

"Birkhead and Stern appear to be cooperating in pursuit of Anna Nicole Smith's claim against the Marshall estate - that's where the principal money is."

Anna Nicole's estate could be worth much more because of her decade-long court battle for the estimated $1.6 billion estate of her late husband, Texas oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II.

A hearing was set for June 19 regarding Stern and Birkhead's respective filings.
