Late Anna Nicole Smith’s Partner Larry Birkhead Looks like Daughter Dannielynn’s Spitting Image in Rare Throwback Photos
Larry Birkhead shares pictures of himself in his school days. The Throwback photos have fans noticing how much his 12-year-old daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, resembles him.
Birkhead was feeling very nostalgic recently when he took to Instagram to share a few pictures from his school days, sharing photographs from his first day of school he writes:
“First day of school..... who dis? #firstdayofschool”
A young Birkhead posing for a school photo, rocking a blonde bob that seems similar to the one he’s maintained in adulthood. It must be his signature hairstyle.
In the second photograph he pokes fun at his school photographer saying;
“First day of school...different year ?Same photographer that made us put our hands awkwardly like that. #firstdayofschool”
Fans commented on how the adorable photos of Birkhead as a young boy resemble his pre-teen daughter, Dannielynn.
Since her mother, actress and model, Anna Nicole Smith passed away from a pill overdose when Dannielynn was five-months-old, Birkhead has been raising his daughter as a single father.
Seeing the pitfalls of life in Hollywood, while was dating Smith, Birkhead has made the conscious decision to keep his daughter out of the spotlight. The two live a relatively normal life in Kentucky. He tells Insider Edition the reason for this decision saying:
“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.”
Although Birkhead tries to keep his life and his daughter’s life out of the spotlight, Dannielynn’s relationship and uncanny resemblance to her famous mother has her growing up in the public eye.
Addressing the impact of Smith’s public life on his daughter, he says:
“My goal was always to keep [her late brother] Daniel and Anna in her mind and let her know who they were without overdoing it.”
