What was to be a time for celebration turned tragic when, Daniel Smith, Anna Nicole Smith’s 20 year old son, suddenly died early yesterday morning just days after she gave birth to her daughter. The front page of Anna’s website has the following message:
On September 7th Anna Nicole gave birth to a healthy 6 pound, 9 ounce baby girl. 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 September 10th. 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.”
No official details of his death have been released as of yet, but apparently drugs and alcohol have already been ruled out. Boy, that was fast. Considering the fact that Anna Nicole Smith was his mother, they may want to double check that. As a kid, he probably took Jack Daniels and a bent spoon to Show and Tell.
