Where Is Dannielynn Birkhead Now, 10 Years After Anna Nicole Smith’s Death?
Even 10 years after her death, model and reality star Anna Nicole Smith lives on through her daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead.
The young girl is growing up fast — and she’s the spitting image of her famous mom!
When Anna died of combined drug intoxication at age 39 on February 8, 2007, her daughter was 5 months old.
Now it’s a decade later, and Dannielynn is thriving.
Inside Edition visited the young lady at home near Louisville, Kentucky, where she lives with her dad, Larry Birkhead.
After DNA tests confirmed his paternity, Larry was officially named Dannielynn’s father a couple months after Anna’s death.
Dannielynn isn’t the wealthy heiress tabloids would have you believe she is.
She’s not inheriting the estate of J. Howard Marshall, Anna’s late husband, despite the efforts of Anna’s lawyers.
“We saw a video on YouTube that she was one of the ten richest kids in America,” Larry tells Inside Edition.
“Then she wanted to go to the mall. And I’m like, ‘No, it’s not that. Trust me, it’s not that.’”
Despite his public custody battle with Virgie Arthur, Anna’s mother and Dannielynn’s grandmother, Larry insists the reports of him cutting off Virgie’s access are just gossip.
“Anna’s mom has seen Dannielynn, and she’s seen her a few times,” he says. “I say that only because I want the story to stop.”
With all the press about Dannielynn’s famous mother, Larry is trying to maintain a normal childhood for her.
And he’s open to the idea of other parental figures in her life. “I’ll take all the help I can get,” he said.
