The adorable daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith is following in her mother's legendary footsteps, launching a modeling career at the age of six.
Just like her mom, Dannielynn is a natural in front of the camera. Watch her posing on a beach as the new face of Guess Kids.
It's truly a case of like mother, like daughter. You'll recall that Anna Nicole skyrocketed to fame in 1992 modeling for Guess, showcasing that face and, of course, that body.
There's no denying Dannielynn's a little angel, but questions are now being raised. Is she simply too young to be modeling? And will fame at such a young age lead her down the same bleak path her mom walked? Anna Nicole died of a drug overdose in 2007. She was just 39.
Lyss Stern, the founder of divamoms.com, told INSIDE EDITION, "This little girl has been through so much in such a short time. Her mother passed away in such a horrible way. I feel that she should just be sheltered a little bit more than maybe, other children."
But Dannielynn's father, Larry Birkhead, says he thinks Anna Nicole would be proud of Dannielynn's photo layout, and he has an ally in Anna Nicole's sister, Donna Hogan.
Hogan told INSIDE EDITION, "I don't think Dannielynn's too young to model. She's following in her mother's footsteps, and my sister would love that."
An INSIDE EDITION poll shows our viewers are split over the issue.
45% say it's ok for Anna Nicole's daughter to be modeling at age 6.
54% don't think it's a good idea.
Anna Nicole's sister says the pictures are tasteful and age appropriate.
"She is so gorgeous. She looks just like her mother. It's just heartbreaking seeing how much they look alike, and how much my sister would love to see her grow," said Hogan.
