PARENTING experts have voiced their concern for the six-year-old daughter of Anna Nicole Smith, who has landed her first modelling job as the face of Guess Kids.
Dannielynn Birkhead, who has lived with her father, Larry Birkhead, in Burbank, California, since her mother's tragic death after a drug overdose in 2007, fronts the spring 2013 campaign, and is seen posing on a beach in next season's denims.
But the launch of the campaign has sparked fear for the youngster, with many arguing that she should be sheltered from the spotlight, rather than paraded in front of it.
Lyss Stern, founder of Divamoms.com, told MailOnline that fame should be something Dannielynn chooses for herself as an adult.
'Why does she have to follow in her mother's footsteps?' she asked. 'Yes, she's a beautiful little girl, but it would really be best to keep her out of the spotlight until she's an adult.
Is six years old too young for a child to start modelling?
