Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter Dannielynn Birkhead, 14, looks just like late mom attending Kentucky Derby with dad Larry
ANNA Nicole Smith’s daughter Dannielynn Birkhead, 14, looked just like her late mom while attending the Kentucky Derby with her dad Larry Birkhead.
Larry, 48, shared photos from the father-daughter outing in an Instagram post on Friday.
In one photo, Dannielynn and Larry sat on a set of stairs as they smiled for the camera.
The teen wore a huge smile of her face as she rocked a bright blue suit and a headband with a large white flower on it.
The following two snaps included a selfie of the pair and another snap of the duo happily smiling for the camera inside of the event.
“Even though our favorite event The Barnstable-Brown Party won’t be back until next year, we decided to head out on this beautiful day to Churchill Downs racetrack in preparation for The Kentucky Derby.”
He continued: “Dannielynn ‘finished first’ in her @jovanifashions pant suit and a beautiful white flowered fascinator.
“She said she wanted to wear something entirely different than she had in the past. I guess that means no more ‘little girl’ dresses??
“She cleaned out the chocolate brownies, ice cream and nachos while at the same time critiquing my outfit.”
Dannielynn’s mother, Anna Nicole, rose to fame as a model after dropping out of high school in Texas at age 14.
The actress married her first husband Billy Smith when she was 17, with whom she birthed her first child Daniel in 1984.
After a series of campaigns, Anna’s career took off when she was featured as Playboy’s Playmate of the Year in 1993.
The media was entranced with her tumultuous life, though she initially claimed to not be bothered by it.
The model next married J. Howard in 1994, when she was 26 and he was 89.
Their marriage sparked heavy controversy, as many believed she was using him for his billions.
J. Howard passed away just one year later, igniting a court battle over his will which lasted a grueling 11 years.
The television personality was seeing several men when she gave birth to Dannielynn in 2006, sparking a custody battle that continued well past her death.
Her son tragically died when he was 20 just three days after Dannielynn’s birth.
Anna died on February 8, 2007, five months after the birth of her daughter and passing of her son.

The mother of two fell unconscious due to a prescription drug overdose at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and was unable to be resuscitated.
Serious speculation over who fathered Dannielynn followed Anna’s passing, as Howard Stern, Larry Birkhead and Prince Frederick von Anhalt all claimed they were the rightful parent.
In April of 2007, it was confirmed that Larry was the child’s father.
Larry and Dannielynn teamed up for the ABC documentary Tragic Beauty in February, which touched on the teen’s life without her mother.
