Look who it is! We couldn’t believe our eyes when saw Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, at the 140th annual Kentucky Derby on May 3. The 7-year-old blonde cutie stepped out for a rare appearance with her dad, Larry Birkhead, in their home state of Kentucky to do what they do best: look amazingly adorable.
Dannielynn was outfitted in true Derby style: a pastel floral tulle frock, complete with a butterfly fascinator, quite different from her Mary Poppins-esque look last year. We shouldn’t be surprised that this budding fashionista was able to pull off such a flawless look, after all, she is becoming a glorified model in her own right! Just take a peek at her Guess campaign — which also happened to be the same company that launched her mother’s career.
Speaking of Anna, little Dannielynn unfortunately never got the chance to know her mom. Back in 2007, Anna Nicole sadly passed away when Dannielynn was just five months old, but thanks to proud papa Larry, Dannielynn understands that her mother is always watching over her.
“At this point,” Larry once explained to FoxNews, “she thinks her mom was a very pretty person, and she watches over her every day, and she’s in heaven.”
So where has Larry and Dannielynn been these days? “We live in Kentucky and it’s kind of a paparazzi-free zone,” Larry said on Today back in 2013. "My family is there to support me and to help me with Dannielynn and so that's been a positive.”
Larry has managed to keep his daughter out of the spotlight ever since Anna’s death and the subsequent paternity drama. We’re glad to see that these two are living happily ever after paparazzi-free, although we love to see this cutie every now and then!
Do you think Dannielynn looks just like Anna Nicole or is she all Larry? Sound off in the comments below!
