The poor little girl is destined for a life of questioning who is truly on her side. I hope whoever ends up being the father loves her as a true father should, and continuously be there when all the questions start coming from her when she learns what happened in her first few months of life.
Life is short.So eat great food!

What a terrible ordeal the death of Anna Nicole Smith was and I feel so bad for her darling daughter Daniellyn. As she grows up I know she will be in the press constantly and I feel so sad for her.

It will be interesting to learn who her true father is.

The whole sordid story is insanity. I would quesiotn the character and morals of anyone associated with her. Likely as not the father is as unfit to raise a child as she was.

Unfortunately I fear the kid is doomed.

As heir to a possible kazillion bucks (am not sure at the moment that there is very much in the pot, but the lawyers will keep at it until the pot is too small to worry about), everyone wants a piece of the action.

Were it not for DNA testing Fathers' Day could be very confusing for that tot.

I just wish the poor child could be tossed into a normal (whatever that is) home and be able to grow up without all of the baggage she will unwittingly be toting.

The bottom line is it there is a kid in the balance, and her best interests should be paramount.

I hope she is taken care of and this story just goes away.

It is tawdry and becoming more meretricious by the moment.

They say truth is stranger than fiction. Who could write a story like this? Who would believe it?

The last time I responded to a post about ANS I was censored. I'm going to try again with the hopes that a different perspective while possibly unpleasant is not reason enough to be censored.

Agreed, I am happy to not have to hear about her or the pink beribboned casket any longer. When the potential list of fathers began climbing the entire subject slipped into the hilarious category, especially for radio announcers. Agreed, a woman has died, earlier than she should have. I beleive the best part of her life was still unlived....if she could have straightened herself out. Living in the limelight is not always as flattering as many would believe. Its hard and demanding and lots of choices are made that are usually not in anyone's best interest. Like so many other people who's lives have been cut short, we'll never know, will we?

Any child who loses a mother should be cared for and loved, either by family or surrogates, but loved, nevertheless. Please, when you all consider this baby, remember all the others, as well, for surely they deserve your thoughts equally, yes? This baby would have grown up in the lense of the camera one way or the other because of who her mother is/was. She's not the first child who inherited millions early in life. Indeed, I hope the paternity of her parentage is solved, once and for all. Everyone deserves to know who they are.

What I don't get is the constant hand wringing and breast banging about the poor baby. That's precisely what rag editors want to hear because that means papers and stories are being sold. Forget about it, stop wailing over it, stop purchasing the papers that write about it and the baby could grow up happy andn satisfied.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I would just like to say that I think it is ridiculous that Anna Nicole got more publicity and concern than mother Theresa and the Pope when they died...now what does that say for our country? We care more about a woman who married a man twice her age for his money and was a porn star? That baffles my mind. I am by no means speaking for EVERYONE but that seems to be the mojority. God Bless Daniellyn and may Anna Nicole and her son rest in peace.
