The 23-year-old Spanish-born woman had a party in Los Angeles, and her mom attended with Dakota. Unlike Griffith and her first female child, Stella is not a part of Hollywood. 

Dakota, on the other hand, has had a successful career with movies like the "Fifty Shades of Grey," three-part film to her credit.
