05/03/2010 at 09:00 AM ET

Adorable! Larry Birkhead receives a sunny smile from daughter Dannielynn Hope, 3½, on Wednesday in Louisville, Kentucky.

The pair were visiting the Kentucky Derby Museum, where the dress Anna Nicole Smith wore to the 2004 Derby is displayed. The late model and Birkhead met and began their relationship at the event that year.

She is just so beautiful. And her smile is just filled with love and light. I’m so glad Larry is doing such a wonderful job with her and that eventhough her life started in tragedy it now seems to be so happy and wonderful.

I love seeing pictures of this family. He fought for his daughter, and the love he has for her is apparent in all the pictures. She’s a beautiful blend of Larry and Anna Nicole.

I’ve always thought she looks like her dad and mom together. He seems like a really stand up guy being a really great dad.

Dannielynn is gorgeous. She used to look just like Larry but I’m starting to see more and more of Anna Nicole.

Pretty girl! She also looks a lot like Anna Chlumsky in My Girl, actually…

Beautiful pics, simply beautiful!

The love he has for that little girl is just amazing! One has to wonder if Nicole were still alive, what type of life Dannielynn would have. It’s a shame her Mom can’t see her now!

Rachel on

I think she looks like a combination of the both of them — and she is adorable! I also think it’s very clear that she’s exactly where she’s supposed to be. What love and sweetness!

Dannielynn is such a beautiful little girl! Her smile is precious, and the way she’s looking at her Daddy…you can just see how happy she is and how much she loves him. And vice versa too…clearly, Larry is doing a grat job raising his little girl.

She is so gorgeous (how could she not be?) and I am so thrilled that she is with her father. I respect Larry, who seems to be doing a wonderful job rearing her out of the limelight, and she seems very happy. Kudos to him. MAJOR kudos, Larry.
