I thought she was born in the Bahamas?

Giadana on

Dannielynn was NOT born in Hawaii. She was born in the Bahamas, where her brother died while visiting her.

Tricia on

Wasn’t Dannielynn born in the Bahamas, where Anna Nicole & Howard Stern were living at the time (and where Anna’s son Daniel died, while there visiting his new sister?) Anyway, she’s absolutely beautiful and looks healthy & happy. Good for Dad Larry & her.

Amanda on

Wow,it’s hard to believe it has been two years since Dannielynn was born. She is a beautiful little girl and I just want to wish her a very very Happy Birthday.

Kelly on

Michelle on

What a beautiful girl. Looks so much like her mother. I hope she has a much calmer and happier life than her mother did.

grace on

she is so beautiful, she looks like a doll!

Robin on

What a gorgeous little girl! Her eyes are so pretty. Larry is such a good father for getting Dannilynn’s strabismus corrected at an early age. Once her lazy eye was corrected, we can really see what a beautiful little girl she is🙂 Shiloh, watch out!!

Mathilde on

Everything I hear about Dannielynn I always get so sad. She is this beautiful little girl, who will never be able to see and talk to her mother and brother.

On another subject; didn’t Anna Nicole have another name for Dannielynn when she was born, and then changed it because of Daniel’s death. I seem to remember another name – and then she changed it in order to honour her beloved son. Am I right or am I confused?🙂

Happy Birthday Dannielynn.
And may you have the best life.

kimberley on

Kelly on

Happy Birthday!
Wow, she is a beautiful little girl – her mother would be so proud.

(I hope she is kept away from the spotlight)
How sad that her Mother and brother are no longer around to enjoy her.

Betty on

It seems like yesterday…

Cheryl on

Mathilde, she was originally named Hannah Rose before her mum changed it when her brother died.

She is adorable! I can’t believe she’s 2 already!

Ling on

Anna was going to name her Hannah Rose, then Annas son Daniel died, so she named her after him, and Lynn is Annas real middle name.

brooke on

She is such a beautiful child, she looks so much like anna now. Larry seems like a great dad, they seem happy together and I think she will have a good life with her daddy.

Naija Gal on

Happy B’day to a gorgeous girl! Congrats again to the proud daddy. I love how he came out and said “well I hate to say it, but I told you so”.

This little girl deserves better than a father who sells her every milestone to the tabloids. Sigh.
