Recently, Larry Birkhead, late Ann Nicole’s ex-partner and the father of their daughter Dannielynn, recently provided a rare glimpse into their daughter’s life during an interview with People magazine. Birkhead admitted that he’s a bit worried about the growth of his 16-year-old daughter, especially at the thought of her leaving home to pursue a college education.
“It’s one of those things that all parents go through. They don’t want their kids to go off, but they know they have to,” he confessed to the news outlet. “It’s one of those things where she’s just now dipping her toe into getting stuff, and people are mailing her things. And every time I get something in the mail for college, I don’t know if I really want to give her this because she might take them up on this offer and go somewhere to college.”

Recently, the duo attended the event on Saturday with Dannielynn stepping out stylishly in a $2,350 Leo Lin sunflower-print ‘Nadia Voluminous Gown, while her father rocked a baby-blue suit, a gold necktie, and a sunflower pin.
