When model Anna Nicole Smith passed away in 2007 at the age of 39, her daughter Dannielynn Birkhead was only 5 months old. Now at the age of nine, the youngster is looking more and more like her beautiful late mother.
Her father Larry Birkhead, was dating Anna Nicole Smith in secret when she fell pregnant. Smith’s people wanted her fans to still think she was single and available, even though she had been dating Birkhead for several months.
Birkhead, 43, who has full custody of his daughter is often seen out and about with Dannielynn. The Kentucky Derby is one of their regular annual events and this year was no exception. Father and daughter were snapped together on the red carpet in May while attending the event.
Judging by the photos, it looks like Anna Nicole’s gorgeous daughter has inherited her wide smile, blonde hair and striking hazel eyes.
Dannielynn is also following in her mom’s footsteps careerwise, having already made her modeling debut in a Guess ad campaign back in 2012 when she was only six years old.
Anna Nicole Smith’s also had a son who died when he was 20 years old. Daniel Smith, died on September 10, 2006, in his mother’s hospital room while visiting her and his half sister Dannielynn.
