It certainly hasn't been an easy road for Larry Birkhead and his daughter Dannielynn, but things are definitely looking up.

The single dad sat down with E! News for an inside look at what life has been like since Anna Nicole Smith's passing and how the two are moving on from the tragic event.

During the special, Birkhead gets candid about his daughter's upbringing and the hardships they've faced.

"I have told her from a young age, ‘Mom's in heaven,' she understands that," he explained.

So is the seven-year-old beginning to want to know more about her famous mother?

"She's pretty satisfied with the stories that I give her [about Anna Nicole] at this moment," Birkhead shared. 

“And as she gets older, I may have to get Dr. Phil in or something.”

Birkhead also shared that while he has been busy juggling his fatherly duties, he is ready to take on the dating world.

And not only is he ready to meet that special someone, but Dannielynn is also ready for her dad to focus on his romantic life.

“On the show, Dannielynn tries to hook me up,” he confessed about the upcoming special.

“So we’ll see. You’ll have to see. But she is a matchmaker more than I am!”
