In the early and mid 2000s, Anna Nicole Smith was a famous model, TV personality, and actress. She rose to popularity with her bombshell blond looks after being awarded with the 1993 Playmate of the Year title. While this Marylin Monroe lookalike never had a public relationship with Hugh Hefner, she did get married to another elderly man named J. Howard Marshall II, who she met when she was working as a stripper in Houston back in 1991.
He was an 89-year-old oil tycoon who died soon after they married in 1994. For the next year, the widow fought hard to get a piece of her late husband’s estate. She briefly had her own reality show from 2002 to 2004, and then died of a drug overdose in 2007.
She had a 20-year-son who tragically died from a drug overdose, and just three days before his death on September 7, 2006, she gave birth to a daughter named Dannielynn in the Bahamas. Just one year later, in 2007, Anna Nicole herself passed away at the young age of 39, found in a hotel room in Florida.
Who is Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter?
It’s been 14 years since the infamous Smith passed away, and today, her daughter Dannielynn Birkhead is a gorgeous teenager who is the spitting image of her mother. Dannielynn and her father Larry Birkhead recently starred in a 20/20 special titled Tragic Beauty, where Dannielynn finds out more about her mother, who she doesn’t know much about.
Larry thought the show would be a great way for the two of them to go back to Anna’s beginnings and rediscover parts of her life that they weren’t aware of before. In the 2-hour special, they go to her hometown in Texas as well as conducting interviews with others who were close with the starlet. One person from her past says to Dannielynn, “You are your mommy” in regards to how similar the two look. They talk to her high school friends, and went to her regular spots that she frequented before getting famous and leaving the small-town life.
