Dannielynn Birkhead, the daughter of Anna Nicole Smith has grown up. She was seen posing with her father Larry Birkhead during the Kentucky Derby.

Larry wrote, “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. Dannielynn finished first in her @jovanifashions pantsuit 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??” Larry joked how his daughter ate ice cream, chocolate brownies, and nachos while also criticizing his outfit.

Dannielynn looks pretty in pink in her dress by Junona and her Mom’s hat from her unforgettable appearance at The Kentucky Derby in 2004 #KentuckyDerby2019.” The father-daughter duo always appear very sweet together.
The pair also attended the Kentucky Derby Eve Gala in 2019 at Patricia Barnstable Brown‘s home in Louisville. Dannielynn had changed her outfit for the gala. She had worn a beautiful yellow dress with flowers in pink details for the annual event. It is a tradition for Larry and Dannielynn to attend the Kentucky Derby event. They have been attending together since 2010. It is also the only appearance they make. This event is important for Larry since this is the event where he met his wife Anna Smith many years ago.
Larry who has been a model, actor, and photographer has called his daughter Dannielynn, Anne’s legacy. They do appear very similar especially in their beautiful smiles. Dannielynn was only 5 months old when her mother, Anne Nicole who was a reality star and a Guess? the model had passed due to a drug overdose in 2007.
Larry has always tried to keep his teenage daughter out of the media’s eyes. He has raised her peacefully in Kentucky. In 2017, Larry gave an interview to Inside Edition where he said, “I think here in Kentucky is as normal as you can get. She loves school. She loves her friends. I just hope that she dreams big and accomplishes a lot.” He shared that Dannielynn had been approached to model but he had declined the offers because she “wants to be a kid” and “doesn’t show any interest in it.”
14 years after Anne’s overdose, Larry made an appearance on Tragic Beauty which was an ABC special. In the episode, Larry and Dannielynn went through Anne’s possessions that had been stored in storage. Larry had said in a voiceover, “She wanted to be a star; she wanted to be a mother, and Dannielynn is her legacy.”
