Nearly nine years after the death of Anna Nicole Smith, Larry Birkhead, father of Smith’s 9-year-old daughter Dannielynn, opened up to Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday about how the father and daughter duo are doing these days. Despite her rocky start in life and losing her mother at such a young age, as well as her uncle Daniel (who died from a drug overdose when she was just three days old), Dannielynn is a perfectly well-adjusted, healthy fourth grader who loves playing video games and doing normal kid stuff.
Dannielynn is also a spitting image of her famous mother, a fact that has not been lost on Birkhead.
“I look at her and she’s my everything,” Larry, 42, said of his little girl. “When I see how big she’s become, I’m just so proud of her… She reminds me so much of her mom and as she gets older, and her features are changing, it’s just like having a little miniature Anna Nicole running around in so many ways.”
Birkhead says that he tells Dannielynn about her mother, but for now tries to shield her from the harsher truths from the model’s notorious life. All things considered, it seems like a pretty happy ending for the little girl, who — whether or not she becomes a model herself — hopefully won’t end up following too closely in Anna Nicole Smith’s footsteps.
