The final months of Anna Nicole Smith‘s life contrasted moments of sheer joy with unbearable heartache.
In September 2006, the former Playboy model welcomed her daughter into the world. Just days later, her son Daniel – while visiting her and his new half-sister in hospital – died, aged just 20. The baby was named Dannielynn in his memory.
Five months later on 8 February, Anna Nicole Smith died the same way her son did, of an accidental overdose of prescription medication.
However, more than just a tragic coincidence, people close to Smith have suggested the mother and son’s deaths were closely linked.
