He has raised his daughter as a single parent

"I'm not a gold digger," insisted Anna at the time. "I could have married him a week after we met or two weeks after we met. I could have married him years before. And I didn't. I didn't.

Dannielynn was born in 2006 and initially Howard was listed on her birth certificate as the father. However, photographer Larry claimed paternity and a DNA test later confirmed that he was indeed the little girl’s dad.
