Alexander Denk's Secret Love Affair With Anna Nicole
Posted by Richelle Ruta on Apr 15, 2007 - 9:01:00 PM

It is Friday afternoon when Alexander Denk, the late Anna Nicole Smith’s bodyguard and alleged baby’s father, and I are introduced; his prominent Beverly Hills lawyer - Cyrus Nownejad sits arms crossed beside him, watching like a mother eagle.

If someone had unsuspectingly passed Alex on the street, they could easily mistaken him for a brute, although he’s nothing of the sort.  His soft Austrian accent and good-humored introduction clearly illustrates a man with a sunny disposition.  Standing at over six feet, with blond hair, piercing blue eyes, a muscularly defined physique and wearing a black shirt with a Yellow Ribbon Foundation insignia, he is also a personal trainer to countless major Hollywood celebrities.

As he jovially discusses the day’s end and what he does on days like these, he casually mentions his previous occupations as a 12 time-award winning chef and as having been a body-double for one of the world’s most renowned action hero.

But clearly, there’s more to this man; this man who calls himself as the 1993’s playmate-of- the- year’s bodyguard. 

“I met Anna when she was 250 pounds.  She hired me as a bodyguard and was even in her TrimSpa commercial.  She told them (TrimSpa) that she didn’t want anyone else because she knew me well and that she trusted me.”  Denk adds.  “I trained her for two years.  We became close and I helped her lose weight.”

            He then pulls out countless, never before seen emails, and pictures of them canoodling and engrossing in intimate moments.  As many questions still linger, Denk doesn’t hesitate to answer.

            “Anna and I were friends and we were very close.  After she hired me as her bodyguard, I also became her chef and I cooked for her as well.” Denk states. “It’s a definite possibility that I am Dannielynn’s father because we were often intimate and she confided in me, telling me all her secrets; we were secret lovers.”

            On a more serious tone, he pulls forward to elaborate.

            “We dated and she always told me ”˜Alex, I want to have kids with you. You loved me when I was fat; I can trust you.’  There was a connection; we had a mutual agreement, and I never made it public before because I’m confidential with my clients.” He further reiterates, “but there’s a possibility I may be the baby’s father and that’s why I’ve made this public.”

            When asked about his motives, Denk seriously responds by saying, “I am not doing this for the money.  Her (Anna’s) intention was for me to be in her life and be there for her kids.  I don’t care about the money.  Even if it wasn’t involved, I would still be there for the baby.  I would still claim her as my kid if there is that possibility because she (Dannielynn) needs her father.”

            As Denk concludes his statement, a certain sorrow comes over him. Noticeably, he’s lost someone very dear to him.


                  At press time, the father of Dannielynn Smith is Larry Birkhead.
