Anna Nicole Smith's Daughter Is All Grown Up

We haven't seen a whole lot of Anna Nicole Smith's daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, since she was born in 2006. Her father, Larry Birkhead, has pretty much kept her out of the spotlight despite all of the attention that surrounded her late mother.

Everyone was shocked to see how grown up she was when she modeled for Guess Kids back in 2012. Although some people thought that might be the beginning of the youngster following in Anna's model footsteps, it turned out to be just a one-off and Dannielynn pretty much went under the radar again.

Finally, this weekend, the adorable 7-year-old surfaced at the Kentucky Derby and once again, we're shocked at how much she's changed since we last saw her.

Wearing an age-appropriate butterfly headpiece (you have to have something on your head at the Derby), which was the perfect complement to her princess outfit, Dannielynn was all smiles as she posed for pics on the red carpet with her father.

In a 2005 interview with GMA, Larry said that Dannielynn had started asking about her mom. "And, you know [Dannielynn] said [to me], "Why did mommy die?" he revealed. "And I said 'You know, they, doctors couldn't fix her. But if you're good ... you'll get to see her someday.'"

Tough stuff. With all that has happened, we can totally see why Larry isn't thrusting her into the limelight, but we do love when the father-daughter duo does decide to make a rare public appearance.

Are you guys surprised at how much Dannielynn has changed?
