Anna Nicole Smith's 6-year-old daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, is modeling for the Guess Kids spring ad campaign, alongside R&B singer Babyface's daughter, Peyton Edmunds. The ads will start appearing in magazines, and on billboards and buses, in January. I have to say, the comparisons being made between Dannielynn and her mom are kind of creepy, but the New York Daily News says this is a onetime thing meant as a tribute to Anna Nicole, who modeled for Guess early in her career (and who died of a drug overdose in 2007). Well, geez, it had better be. Not just because of how Anna Nicole's various problems were enabled by her modeling career, but because her daughter should be allowed to have a real childhood without any adult pressure to take up the same line of work.
