Anna Nicole Smith‘s daughter Dannielyn Birkhead, now age 12, has returned to the Kentucky Derby with her dad.
On Friday, the tween attended the Barnstable Brown Kentucky Derby Eve Gala that precedes the race with her father and the late star’s ex, Larry Birkhead. Dannielynn was all smiles, wearing a sleeveless, yellow Junona dress with a pink floral bodice and a ruffled asymmetrical tulle skirt, paired with hot pink strappy sandals.
“Headed to the 31st annual Barnstable-Brown Derby Eve Gala with Dannielynn, in her awesome dress by Junona. The start to an awesome weekend! #proudpapa #kyderby #KentuckyDerby2019 #BarnstableBrownGala,” Larry tweeted, alongside a photo of him and his daughter.
Larry, who often coordinates his Kentucky Derby outfits with the child, wore a navy suit with a hot pink boutonnière.
While they otherwise largely stay out of the spotlight, Dannielynn and her father have attended the Kentucky Derby together every year since 2010.
The annual weekend event holds a special place in their heart; Anna had actually met Larry while she was shooting her E! show at the Barnstable Brown Kentucky Derby Eve Gala in 2003, four years before the model died at age 39
