The 20-year-old son of Anna Nicole Smith died while visiting his mother in the Bahamas hospital where the reality TV star and former Playboy playmate had given birth last week, a police official said Monday.
Daniel Wayne Smith died Sunday at Doctors' Hospital in Nassau, said Reginald Ferguson, assistant commissioner of the Royal Bahamian Police Force. He said an autopsy was under way.
Anna Nicole Smith, 38, gave birth to a healthy 6-pound, 9-ounce girl at the hospital Thursday, her website said.
"Anna Nicole is absolutely devastated by the loss of her son. He was her pride and joy and an amazing human being," the site said.
Daniel Smith was the product of Smith's 1985 marriage to Billy Smith. The couple, who met while working together at Jim's Krispy Fried Chicken in Mexia, Texas, divorced in 1987. Daniel had roles in her movies "Skyscraper" and "To the Limit."
