Anna Nicole Smith was one of the 90’s most controversial and talked about celebrities.
She rose to fame by posing for Playboy magazine, which then earned her the title Playmate of the year. She went on to model for fashion brands such as Guess and H&M.
Unfortunately, as with many other cases, her fame and fortune also became her downfall.
Anna Nicole Smith died of an overdose in 2007, just a few months after she gave birth to her daughter Dannielynn.
In the wake of her famous mother’s death, Dannielynn quickly became one of the most talked about children in the world. Her upbringing was surrounded by drama and speculation.
Initially, several men claimed to be the girl’s dad and a court eventually ordered a paternity test that revealed that Anna Nicole’s boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, was in fact Dannielynn’s dad.
Many worried about the future of the little girl as there are far too many examples of celebrity children who go down the wrong track, having to put up with a life they didn’t ask for.
Thankfully, dad Larry seems to have a healthier idea of how to raise a child. She’s been enrolled in a regular school, been in the scouts and gone to church every Sunday. Currently, Dannielynn resides with her father in Kentucky.
“Anna Nicole was seduced by the showbiz lifestyle, and Larry wants to make sure Dannielynn doesn’t end up like her,” a source told National Enquirer a few years ago. “[Anna Nicole was] chasing stardom and surrounded by greedy hangers-on.”
Today, 13 years after her mother’s death, you can really see Anna Nicole when looking at the little girl’s face — according to many over the years, Dannielynn is the spitting of her beautiful mother.
Now that she’s a bit older, you can really see her personality shine through and look how similar she is to her father!
According to what Larry told Us Weekly, Dannielynn wants to “be a YouTuber and make videos”. However, he has told her, “‘That’s a lot of work, and you’re only 11 years old. If it’s something you want to do when you get older, you can, but right now let’s sell some Girl Scout cookies.’”
Dannielynn has also said she might follow her mother’s footsteps and become an actress herself.
She said in an interview, “It’s really cool to like, act as a character and not yourself. It’s like portraying a new person. It’s fun.” She has appeared on several shows with her father, including ‘Life after Anna’, ‘Wife Swap‘, and ‘The Millionaire Matchmaker’.
And it’s clear that Anna Nicole’s daughter thinks of her mother -– often.
Last year, during Kentucky Derby, Dannielynn paid tribute to her late mother by wearing a pink dress, similar to the one Anna wore in 2004.
Please share if you think Anna Nicole Smith would had been very proud of her daughter!
