Right now, there’s only one woman in Larry Birkhead’s life—his daughter, Dannielynn.
But, if it were up to her, he’d be changing that ASAP.
“I want to get out there and Dannielynn has been pushing me out the door trying to get me to go on dates now for a couple of years,” the single father confessed on Good Morning America.

The gorgeous 7-year-old’s mother, Anna Nicole Smith, passed away when she was only a few months old—but she’s warming up to the idea of a “substitute mother”—especially after she and her dad taped Celebrity Wife Swap.
“I’m both parents to Dannielynn, so it is hard to flip the switch. I don’t have a good cop/bad cop type of thing, so I’m both cops,” he said. “I said the word, ‘substitute mom’ or ‘a wife’ to come in and [Dannielynn] immediately lit up and was like, ‘Really? Really?’”
Of course, the 41-year-old didn’t have a wife to swap, so instead he sent his sister, Angela to switch places with Adriana Henao, girlfriend of three-time Indy 500 champ Helio Castroneves.
And now that Dannie has embraced the idea of a woman in their lives, her dad admits he has his eye on someone!
“I was watching Dancing With the Stars and I saw there was a girl named Peta,” he joked. “And I think I just missed her by a couple days here [on GMA] in New York, too.”
