Poor Anna Nicole

I read this sad news last night but was hoping there would be more info today. So far nothing. Word is, Ms Smith's 20 year old son, Daniel Wayne Smith, was found dead in the Bahamas. There are no other details except he died suddenly in his bed. There is no cause of his death yet but they do not believe that "drugs or alcohol were a factor." The sad news comes to Anna just days after giving birth to her new daughter. Isn't that also weird? Why had we not heard of her new addition yet? Either way, we hope Anna is doing OK. I could not imagine giving birth one day and losing a child a few days later.

My heart breaks for anna nicole smith.Losing a child is tragic.He was so young to die of a heart attack!But than again sometimes people have heart conditions and not even know until its to late.He died in the hospital in the maternity ward to vist his mom and the new baby.Its odd how a new life came into the world and another life was taken scary!

I just read more about the incident. The news said that he wasn't in bed as orginially thought, but in the same room as Anna at the hospital sleeping upright in a chair. She woke and went to awake him up but no movement. From there she called for help and they pronounced him dead. I am deeply sorry for Anna and her bittersweet situation. Losing a child a few days after welcoming a blessing into this world.

As I was watching Access Hollywood tonight they were saying on there that they werent 100% sure but it is believed to be cardiac arrest, which I think he is awfully young for that. But it could happen. I just wish Anna well, this will be a very rough time for her.

That is horrible for her, losing her son and just as she has given birth to her daughter too... and he's so young too.

Daniel was only a couple of months older than me. I always thought that he was much younger than me because the stock footage I would always see was of him looking 13 holding his mother's hands infront of a courtroom. That would always happen when people debated Anna's case and whether she should be given her late husband's fortune. It makes me want to get checked out and see a doctor. I've been feeling weird heart murmers and it makes me scared that 20-year- olds can die of heart failure.

This is horrible. I don't want to come off sounding cold-hearted, but I recall an episode of her TV show where she and her teenage son got drunk together. She was so out of it she could barely take care of him. I hope her daughter has a long, healthy life.

I've heard of several cases of college-age guys having heart attacks where no drug history was involved. It can be a congenital problem that was unknown. Guess we'll just have to wait for the reports on this. IMDB says he was a straight A student, and that couldn't have been easy with his bumpy home life growing up. Isn't there a hurricane in the Bahamas today too? She may have gone there to have the baby away from the media and now she's probably holed up in a hotel with a newborn in a hurricane, grieving for her son. That's pretty sad.

Very tragic- only saw her show a few times, but she totally doted on her son. I hope she has a lot of support these first few months of grieving and raising a newborn. How can she possibly bond with this new one. Hopefully, she will just concentrate on this new one that is a blessing. These things happen in strange ways. I am not going to get religious, but I have seen many times new life coming when another passes. Nothing replaces her first born, but hopefully she can see some of him in this new baby to bring her some peace. RIP Daniel

How sad this must be for her!!! I hope it wasn't foul play??? Didn't Anna have a stalker a while back?

How does anyone recover from that? How do you begin to celebrate the begining of one life and still weep for the loss of another? Perhaps Brook SHeilds can hook her up with some anti depressants.

so sad..she'll never be able to celebrate her daughter's bday in happiness she'll always remember her son's death at the same time :(

My thoughts are with Anna...I pray that she finds peace..It's so hard to congratulate her on the birth od her daughter when she has lost her son whom she had for 20 years here on earth..It's sad..May his soul rest in peace.
