The 13-year-old and her father, Larry Birkhead, sat down for a new interview with Daily Mail TV's Jesse Palmer, where she opened up about her love of acting.
"It's really cool to like, act as a character and not yourself," she tells Palmer in a sneak peek of their interview. "It's like portraying a new person. It's fun."
ET's Lauren Zima got all the details about Palmer's visit to the Birkhead residence in Louisville, Kentucky, that airs Tuesday, Sept. 17.
"She's this really sweet 13 year old, she's now a teenager," Palmer shares. "She really is a spitting image of her mom. It'll be interesting to see what happens for her… We catch up with her, her life, what her hobbies are, what it's like growing up a daughter of a big celebrity. Her dad is raising her in Kentucky, trying to give her this normal life away from the spotlight. So it's a great catch up."
"There are some tokens throughout the house in her memory and in her honor. He talks with his daughter a lot about who her mom was [and] what she did," Palmer shares, adding that Larry still has to navigate the challenges of what Dannielynn could read and see on social media about her mother's past.
"So much of it is true, a lot of it is not true as well," he says. "And I think [he's] trying help his daughter understand who her mother was in his memory of her."
ET first met Dannielynn in 2006, and in the years that followed, we've celebrated birthdays and special moments. The last time ET spoke with Larry and his daughter, she was begging her single dad to date. Now, as a teenager, she continues to honor her mother as she lives her life outside of the spotlight.
