Anna Nicole Smith recently gave birth to her second child - a baby girl who was born in the Bahamas last Thursday. Tragically, three days after her daughter's birth, the former Playboy Playmate and reality show star's son, Daniel Wayne Smith, unexpectedly died. He was only 20 years old.
A message was posted today on Anna Nicole's official website confirming Daniel's death.
It read, "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 further information has been given about her son's death at this time.
