Larry Birkhead Talks Dannielynn At The Derby

Larry Birkhead was a star at this weekend's Kentucky Derby and he beamed when talking about his nearly 8-month-old daughter, Dannielynn. "The nursery is all pink," Birkhead, 34, told PEOPLE of the baby's room. (Pink was the favorite color of Dannielynn's mom, the late Anna Nicole Smith.) The baby also is already developing distinctive tastes, according to her father. "She loves Disney characters and zoo characters," says Birkhead. As for the nursery's decor, "I did it all myself," he says.

"Being a single parent, especially one living out of a suitcase", he says, "is crazy. I try to get a lot of rest and relaxation, but being a new dad, it's kinda tough." What comes first? "I change a lot of diapers. [There's] a lot of bottles and outfits. I've been spit on, scratched, kicked, punched, and it's all good, because," he says, "it feels good to be home and share the excitement with family and friends and everybody that's been so kind to me and supportive."
