Just this season we learned that the father of Teen Mom star Farrah’s Abraham’s daughter, Sophia, had passed away. Now Abraham is opening up about that difficult time in her life to Us Weekly.
Derek Underwood, Abraham’s ex-boyfriend, was killed at the age of 19 in a car accident, just 2 months before the birth of Sophia. Abraham tells the magazine, “It’s getting easier, it’s hard to deal with the fact that Sophia never got to meet her dad. But now that I’ve come out on the show about it, I’m really happy I did.”
“He would have been loving and supportive and taken care of both of us. When Sophia was born, her face looked just like his, and so did her toes! I wish he would have been there,” she tells Us. “I made Sophia a baby book with notes that he and I wrote to each other. It’s a big collection of our relationship. I have pictures of us going to dances and lots of memories written down to share. I want her to know that he was a happy person who liked to have fun.”
In addition to dealing with being a single, teen mother Abraham also had to deal with some serious issues with her family. Her mother, Debra Danielson, was arrested and charged with domestic assault after an altercation with Farrah.
Fortunately for Sophia, Abraham and her mother seem to be moving forward. “We’re a lot better. We try to go to counseling at least once a month. We’re definitely past the incident, and we’ve forgiven each other,” says Abraham. “I see or speak to my parents daily now, and they’re the best babysitters I could find!”
