Apparently there’s a reason why Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham hasn’t had to deal with the baby-daddy drama that Maci, Amber and all of the Season 2 girls have had to.
It’s because her baby-daddy is deceased!
The Ashley always wondered why Farrah was so secretive about Sophia’s dad. During her episode of 16 & Pregnant, you may remember Farrah’s crazy-ass mom telling her to stop having contact with the baby-daddy. Farrah never really explained why the dad wasn’t in Sophia’s life. (However, I do think I remember her saying it was a guy who didn’t want to be a part of their lives….not sure if this is true or if I dreamed it up or something.)
Anyway, according to this newspaper from December 2008, before Farrah’s episode of ’16 & Pregnant’ aired, the baby-daddy (named Derek Underwood) got into a very bad car crash, flipping over into a power pole. The accident killed Derek and another passenger.
(If you want to read about that accident, click here.)
The big controversy about this (aside from the fact that it left Farrah alone with a baby) was that the passenger’s mom purchased her son and Derek alcohol at the grocery store right before the accident. She was arrested, but released when it was determined that Derek wasn’t drunk and was below the legal limit. However, the passenger’s mom was still charged with supplying alcohol to a minor.
Anyway, despite the fact that most of the time Farrah is just a whining brat that is in desperate need of a frying pan to the face, I do feel bad for her. I also feel bad for Sophia, who will have to grow up with a less-than-stellar mother, a crazy grandma and no father. Hopefully Farrah will finally grow up and quit being so annoying so she can meet a nice guy who can be a father figure to Sophia.
