Dannielynn Birkhead's transformation: See Anna Nicole Smith's daughter through the years!

Dannielynn Birkhead is growing up right before our eyes!

The daughter of Larry Birkhead and the late Anna Nicole Smith is 10-years-old now, and we couldn't help but look back at how much she's grown up since her birth back in 2006.

Dannielynn made headlines before she could talk, when questions over her paternity rose almost immediately after she was born, but Larry Birkhead was soon confirmed to be her biological father. She has been raised by Larry ever since her mother passed away in February of 2007.

Though Dannielynn made a ton of public outings with her father in the first few years of her life, the Birkheads have since retreated from the public eye to give Dannielynn a more normal childhood. Every May, though, Larry and Dannielynn step out to the Kentucky Derby together to commemorate where Larry first met Anna Nicole.

With each subsequent year, Dannielynn gets more and more grown up, with her appearance this year being especially striking: The similarities to her late mother are too prominent to ignore! The 10-year-old blonde beauty has certainly grown up over the years.
