On Feb. 8, 2007, Anna Nicole Smith died in Hollywood, Florida as a result of prescription drug overdose. Her death came at the height of media tabloid speculation and continually coverage of the former Playboy Playmate whose life spun out of control. Anna Nicole Smith had two children, a son, Daniel (January 22, 1986 – September 10, 2006) and Dannielynn who was born on Sept. 6, 2006. The timing of Anna Nicole’s birth of her daughter and death of her son caused a media frenzy to surround the troubled, grieving woman and the news of her death just five months after the death of her son was shocking, yet not surprising. On Friday, Feb. 10, 2017, ABC will air the special Anna Nicole Smith: Tenth Anniversary on 20/20. The program begins at 10 p.m. ET and you can watch the show as it streams live online, on apps and on TV through your local ABC channel.

When Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter Dannielynn was born, there was a paternity battle for the little girl. As Anna died so suddenly, it was imperative her biological father be identified so that Dannielynn would be raised by her real father. Larry Birkhead was proved to be Danielynn’s father and has raised her out of the limelight, giving her as normal a childhood as is possible under the circumstances. Larry Birkhead will speak to ABC News during the 20/20 show and provide an update on their life. Deborah Roberts hosts the interview that will include stories about Anna never revealed before to the public.
