Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter Dannielyn Birkhead is her mother’s double in new 20/20 documentary

Fans of Anna Nicole Smith were blown away to see her daughter Dannielynn Birkhead in a new documentary, as the pair look almost identical.

The 20/20 documentary special named Tragic Beauty, which aired on Friday in the USA, saw the now 14-year-old Dannielynn search for answers about her late mother’s life.

Dannielynn was just five months old when Anna Nicole died at the age of 39 following a drug overdose on February 8, 2007.

The teen was filmed retracing her mother’s footsteps on a road trip with her father Larry Birkhead, 48, to visit Anna Nicole’s early homes in Texas, where she was born and spent her early school years.

The pair also visited some of Anna Nicole’s favourite places in Los Angeles, as Larry explains: ‘Dannielynn’s a teenager now, and she doesn’t really know a ton of things about her mum.

‘Anna should be remembered as this larger-than-life figure that was really a caring, giving person, a beautiful lady who loved her fans and loved her family.’

The film sees Larry and Dannielynn go through many of Anna Nicole’s personal possessions which he has kept in a storage locker as well as speaking to friends of the late star, whose real name was Vickie Lynn Marshall.

Her friend Frankie Rodriguez says in the film that Anna had: ‘two people’ battling within her – her private and public personas.

Frankie explained: ‘There was Vickie Lynn Marshall and Anna Nicole Smith. Any kinda camera, you just yelled out her name, “Anna Nicole.” When she turned around, it was on the spot; you saw Anna Nicole.

‘The minute that camera left, it was a whole other person. She was back to Vickie Lynn. I [am] very fortunate to have met and gotten to know Vickie Lynn… How she did it, I don’t know. But whatever she was doing, it was making everybody watch.’

The two-hour documentary also explores the unanswered questions around her death at the Hard Rock Hotel in Florida, and why an ambulance wasn’t called for her sooner.
