Anna Nicole Smith has had a life that, if it happened in a movie, people would dismiss as far-fetched, and it has just taken a turn for the tragic – Daniel, Anna Nicole Smith's 20-year-old son, has died.
To make things even more complicated for Anna Nicole Smith, Daniel died just three days after she gave birth to a baby daughter. Neither a name for the daughter or a reason for Anna Nicole Smith's son have been made public as yet.
Anna Nicole Smith's 20-year-old son has died while visiting his mother to celebrate the birth of her new baby girl, it has emerged. A statement on Anna Nicole Smith's website reads:
"On Sept. 7 Anna Nicole gave birth to a healthy 6 lb., 9 oz. baby girl," it reads. "Her son Daniel was in the Bahamas with her to share in the joy of his baby sister when he passed away suddenly on the morning of Sept. 10. We have yet to learn the cause of death but do not believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor. Anna Nicole is absolutely devastated by the loss of her son. He was her pride and joy and an amazing human being. Please do not make any press inquiries at this time so that Anna Nicole can grieve in peace."
It is another strange turn in the life of Anna Nicole Smith – the Playboy model turned reality TV star most famous for her marriage to elderly billionaire J Marshall Howard and subsequent visits to the US Supreme Court. Most recently, after months of speculation, Anna Nicole Smith announced her pregnancy on a video on her website, where she could be seen floating on a lilo.
