It’s hard to believe that so many years have passed since the tragic death of Anne Nicole Smith. The former Playboy model and celebrity died in 2007 at the age of just 39. Lute! News, Smith’s cause of death was due to a combination of intoxicants. Before her death, Smith had complained of flu-like symptoms upon entering the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The star left one daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead. According to Today, Dannielynn was only five months old when her mother died.
In 2021, Dannielynn’s father Larry Birkhead and Dannielynn appeared in a “20/20” special where they discussed the late Smith. During the special, Dannielynn first saw some of her late mother’s belongings, and Larry made sure to mention how similar she was to Smith. “She has a big heart like her mom,” Larry said, per E! News, “and I think she appreciates those things.” How cute is that?
Luckily for fans, Larry remains active on his Instagram feed, sharing fun events that he and his daughter Dannielynn attend together. In May, Birkhead shared a photo of himself and Dannielynn dressed to the nines at the Kentucky Derby. “Bet on a great time with Dannielynn today at this year’s @kentuckyderby then off to the @janetjackson concert!” he wrote on the upload. Turns out, that wasn’t the only time the couple has hooked up with Jackson, proving they’re pretty big fans of the star.

Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter happens to be a huge Janet Jackson fan. On July 25, Dannielynn Birkhead’s father, Larry Birkhead, shared a sweet photo capturing the father-daughter duo backstage with the legendary singer. Larry marked his location in Cincinnati, Ohio. In the shot, he stood on one side of Jackson and Dannielynn on the opposite side as the trio posed for the shot. Looking like she was dressed for a concert, Dannielynn wore a black skirt paired with a smart shirt that was black on one side and striped on the other.
Larry accompanied the picture with a caption as he gushed about how much fun he and his daughter had at the concert. “After hours of singing, dancing and sweating at @cincymusicfest we got to hang out with @janetjackson. She managed to record all her hits, sing and dance in the heat and still find time for two of her fans,” he wrote. “A great weekend. How cute is Janet?”
Dannielynn and her dad both seem to be big fans of the singer, and in May Larry shared another series of pictures that showed Dannielynn rocking one of Jackson’s outfits at the Barnstable Brown gala. “Dannielynn wears Janet Jackson’s personal outfit worn by Janet to the 2003 Barnstable Brown Gala,” he wrote in the upload. Another post featured the duo hanging out with Jackson. Very cute!
