Transcript for What Anna Nicole Smith's daughter Dannielynn Birkhead is like today
Reporter: Dannielynn birkhead is a classic fifth grader. She's into fast cars. And fast food. What's your favorite? French fries. Reporter: And dreams of travel. I want to go to Washington, D.C., so bad. I want to see all the monuments. Reporter: Unlike her mom, who relished the spotlight, dannielynn is shy. Though she's always up for a good time. Today, at an indoor amusement park with cousin Chloe. While she's growing up, her dad Larry is on his own journey. Ten years following the death of the woman he loved, he's beginning a new chapter in his life, starting with some redecorating. Years ago, he showed me his basement, dedicated to Anna Nicole's memory. Her photos and glittering gown proudly on display, but today things are different. Last time I saw a lot of Anna Nicole stuff. And there's no Anna Nicole stuff. Reporter: Oh, my gosh. It's all been moved into storage. Does this signal that you're kind of trying to move on and put Anna in the proper place in your life? You know, I think so. It's better for me. Reporter: Yet, in dannielynn's room, he couldn't part with those colorful clothes her mother collected, even before she was pregnant. So they weren't all baby clothes. She was thinking way ahead. It's kind of, when she wears it, it makes you feel proud that you're at least trying to, you know, carry on what she would have wanted. This was her little outfit from the guess campaign. Reporter: That's right, four years ago, dannielynn modeled for guess. As a way to share something special with her mother, Larry says. But it was a one-time thing. I've had companies call me since then and ask me for her to model. And the answer's no. She doesn't show any interest in it. She wants to be a kid. Reporter: She's a girl scout, owner of a pet lizard, and every night, there's that pesky homework. But there are some lessons her dad wants her to learn above all others. What's the big lesson out of Anna's life? Keep things simple. Be careful who's around you. You can shoot for the stars. But you don't have to be a star to shoot for the stars. You know? Reporter: Through her artwork, dannielynn expresses a connection with the mother she has never known. The 10-year-old's description on her drawing bringing her dad to tears. I'll let you read it. I can't read I Reporter: "Ever since my mother's death, a friend of hers said she would send me pretty butterflies. So butterflies chase me everywhere, and I let the butterfly come out of my pencil and fly on my paper with its wings of love." That's beautiful. So this is the way she thinks of her mother. Being here with her, through beautiful butterflies. It's her dealing with it on her own way and her own pace. I think it takes a strong little girl to write something like that. And as we noted, just this week, lawyers filed a motion in federal court asking a judge to reopen that California case concerning half a billion dollars. Snow on the doorstep again.
