Anna Nicole Smith's daughter Dannielynn Birkhead popped up with her father in NYC today -- and she's gotten so big!

The adorable 7-year-old and dad Larry Birkhead appeared on "Today" on Monday to promote their new E! special, where Larry opened up about how he gives his daughter a normal life.

"We live in Kentucky and it's kind of a paparazzi-free zone," he explained. "It's a little more laid back, so that's been a positive."

"I spend a lot of time with her everyday being both parents, I just try to give her a good foundation and be there for her at all times," Larry adds.

He really has done a good job keeping Dannielynn out of the limelight. The pretty young girl is only photographed annually at the Kentucky Derby ... or on rare trips to New York. 

At 7, she's the perfect mix of her famous mom and proud papa, isn't she?

See how she's grown up through the years in the gallery above.
