Daniel Wayne Smith

We were shocked to read the following on the website of Anna Nicole Smith: ' 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. ' Several years ago Anna started the reality show craze on E! with her own show featuring her son and their dog, SugarPie. Daniel was a well-rounded teenager with a very bright future ahead of him. He was just 20 years old at the time of his death.
