Her mum was one of Hollywood’s most controversial stars before her shock overdose death in 2007.
But while Anna Nicole Smith was no stranger to headlines and scandal, her 12-year-old daughter Dannielynn - who was only five months old when her mum passed away - has enjoyed a quiet and private childhood, tucked away from the spotlight by her dad Larry Birkhead.
But the pair made a rare outing this weekend to attend The Kentucky Derby in the US, gracing the red carpet together.
And in a sweet touch, Dannielynn wore the same pink hat that her late mother wore to the same event in 2004.
Posting a pic of himself with Dannielynn on Instagram, proud dad Larry wrote: 'Kentucky Derby time once again. 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.’
It’s a happy memory for Dannielynn, whose very early years were marred with tragedy.
Her half brother Daniel died from a drug overdose only three days after she was born - just after visiting his mum and new baby sister in hospital. Five months later Anna Nicole also died from a prescription drug overdose, shocking the world.
Her death sparked a huge paternity fight over Dannielynn, with Anna Nicole always maintaining that her lawyer and boyfriend Howard K. Stern was Dannielynn's father.
Despite several men - including Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband - claiming that they were Dannielynn's dad, DNA tests eventually proved that Larry was the father and he was awarded full custody.
