Farrah Abraham Discusses Teen Mom Tragedy

by at . Comments

Celebrity teenage mothers such as Bristol Palin and Jamie Lynn Spears have plenty of financial and familial support to fall back on. Most are not so lucky.

Farrah Abraham, herself a star of Teen Mom on MTV, was struck by tragedy when daughter Sophia's dad, Derek Underwood, was killed in a car accident.

"It's getting easier," Abraham, now 19, tells Us Weekly of the crash that took his life in 2009. "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."

Despite a rocky relationship with Underwood (the couple hadn't spoken for four months before he died), Abraham says he would have been a great dad.

"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 made Sophia a baby book with notes 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. I want her to know that he was a happy person who liked to have fun."

She's waiting for the right time to open up to Sophia. For now, she is leaning on her parents for help. She calls her relationship with her own mother, Debra Danielson, "a work in progress." The reasons why are surprising and sad.

Danielson was charged with domestic assault after tension over Abraham's seeming lack of attention toward her newborn escalated into an altercation. Danielson pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of interference with a police officer.

"We're a lot better. We try to go to counseling at least once a month. We've forgiven each other," says Abraham. "I see or speak to my parents [Danielson and dad Michael] daily now, and they're the best babysitters I could find!"

Farrah should be ashamed of herself with all the pornos. Her parents are suportive of this. Come on. Just think of what her daughter might feel and say when she grows up. How disgusting?and disgraceful. The teens should not look up to someone who does porno.

I think you ALL missed it... what is wrong with your generation that no one cares how this ungrateful, spoiled, empty shell of a human being treats others? Her own parents? "Michael"?
You know what's sad? That she is breeding! Wake up and smell the coffee! This is a life we are talking about, and Princess Farrah ,unfortunately, has this task. Answer this, would any of you want to be Sofia? No amount of money....

I think farrah is doing the best job she can. Her mom can be over bearing and doesnt know how to back off, amber shouldnt hit gary, no one deserves abuse but gary also needs to be more attentive to ambers needs he forgets she exists alot of the time and seems to enjoy winding her up. Maci youre an amazing mom. I can see bentley is your entire world and everything you do is for your little man. Catelynn and tyler you two are amazing. It broke my heart watching your 16 and pregnant story. You two are so strong. And you deffinately made the best choice for carly. I truly commend you for giving brandon and theresa the most precious gift in the world. I feel their pain. I am facing the possibility of not being able to have children. That is hard for any woman to accept let alone a christian woman. You really inspire me. I wish you all the best for you and your children

I just read all the comments posted and am shocked to see how many ppl think Caitlyn and Tyler gave thier baby girl up cos they were 'lazy'! U guys have absolutely NO IDEA AT ALL!! C and T, yr both an insipation, u have made an extremely difficult but good decision. As long as u work on making the best of yourselves im sure yr baby girl will be even more proud of u than the thousands of us strangers that watch u on the show. Farrah, keep growin, Maci, u rock, Amber, u suck (but believe it or not, lots out there worse than u!). =]

Farrah Abraham Quotes

I think having a TV show that shows your personality and your intimate life, you know, showing your best friend, and then showing having sex ... to me it's kind of the same thing because both things are intimate.

[On her DUI arrest] I did not endanger anyone's life.
