Anna Nicole Smith's daughter to model

Anna Nicole Smith

Anna Nicole Smith's six-year-old daughter is taking up modelling.

Dannielynn Birkhead will star in a new campaign for Guess jeans nearly two decades after her late mother scored a coveted contract with the brand.

Guess launched Anna Nicole to mainstream success in 1993 with several sultry ads. Five years after her death, the youngster is to follow in her footsteps in a more youthful campaign.

Dannielynn's father Larry Birkhead confirmed the deal to Entertainment Tonight, calling it "a tribute to her mum".

"It was something I asked her if she wanted to do, and she said, 'Sure!'" he explained.

"Dannielynn will look back someday and say, 'How cool! I got to be a Guess girl just like my mum.'"

While he is thrilled about the adorable little girl having such a grand opportunity Larry says he's not pushing her to pursue a modelling career and instead wants her to "be a kid and have school."

But Dannielynn is already so eager about the project he admits it might be difficult to steer her in another direction.

"She said, 'Now tell me, when am I going to be on those shopping bags?'" Larry mused, adding, "She asked if she was going to be on billboards, and I said, 'Maybe ... you never know.'"

Anna Nicole Smith died of combined drug intoxication in February 2007, less than five months after the death of her 20-year-old son, Daniel.
