Danielle is the daughter of Rosemary Rado, a former dancer and Rockette, and Walter Russell, a former singer. When she was ten, a friend of her mother's suggested to Rosemary that Danielle should pursue modeling. Not long after, when she was ready for a model career, she received many calls from agents and managers asking for interviews, and she had booked several commercials and print jobs and had done a lot of regional theater by the age of twelve.
