Dannielynn And Larry Birkhead Purchase A Home In Kentucky

Larry Birkhead has purchased a 10,000-sq.-ft., six-bedroom house in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, for himself and 21-month-old daughter Dannielynn, he tells PEOPLE. Larry, 35, says the house, which has 40-ft. ceilings and is modeled after a Sicilian church, was never completed, needs a lot of work, and right now "looks like a haunted house," but he loves it. "When I walked in, I said to myself, 'This is our home!'" says Larry.

He adds he might sell the Los Angeles house where he's surrounded by memories of its former occupants – Dannielynn's mother, Anna Nicole Smith, and half-brother Daniel, who both died from drug-related complications. "At first, I couldn't imagine parting with it," says Larry. "Then I realized I was probably holding on to it for the wrong reasons, thinking to myself that would ease the pain of losing Anna and Daniel. I have always thought that it would be great for Dannielynn to grow up in her mother's home; however, there is no yard as it is over a canyon." He adds: "There also isn't any little friends for her to run around with – which makes the idea of Kentucky even more inviting."
