Farrah Abraham Pays Tribute to Late Father of Her Daughter
Farrah Abraham is not here to cause any controversy for a change.
And we’re not here to make fun of her parenting in any way, shape or form.
Instead, the former Teen Mom OG star made headlines over the weekend for one very sad and serious reason…
… the death of Derek Underwood.
For those unaware, Underwood is the father of Abraham’s daughter, Sophia.
He tragically died in a car accident in 2008 and Farrah shared the photos above and below of herself at his grave site on Friday in order to pay tribute to Derek’s life.
And mourn his death.
“These last couple of days have been some of the best days in my life, today is the 10th Anniversary of Sophia’s Father, Derek Underwood, the love of my life’s car accident 12/28/2008 that changed my life forever,” wrote the 27-year old, adding:
“Seeing Sophia spend the night at her dads parents house on the 10th anniversary fills me with joy.”
The polarizing reality, who rarely discusses this very sensitive topic for obvious reasons, went on to detail the difficulties she faced after Underwood’s death
This is what she wrote:
I can’t believe I even lived to see this day as I never thought I would get through the sadness, suicidal thoughts, depression, anxiety and hardships of loosing [sic] someone I loved this much who I thought I would be with today.
Today marks a new decade with the family and loved ones who held through this decade and now were filled with love, gratefulness, and confidence that we are blessed with the best angel of Derek watching over us, this new decade, new year will be one of our best and I’m so thankful and feeling so happy.
Not to get all cheesy here, but the scandals so often surrounding Farrah make it easy to forget that there’s a real human being there.
Someone who has been through an absolute nightmare.
Abraham concluded with a sweet message directed at her late ex, writing:
“Thank you Derek for watching over us all & showing me to live my best life with our daughter like it could be our last. So much love.”
As you can see, Farrah also included a few photos of herself, Sophia and more family members visiting Underwood’s grave, which was covered with flowers and balloons, in Saint Joseph, Missouri.
And she wrote the following on her Instagram Story in honor of this anniversary as well:
As far as I can see, grief will never truly end.
It may become softer over time, more gentle, and some days will feel sharp. But grief will last as long as love does — forever. It’s simply the way the absence of your loved one manifests in your heart.
A deep longing, accompanied by the deepest love. Some days, the heavy fog may return, and the next day, it may recede, once again.
It’s all an ebb and flow, a constant dance of sorrow and joy, pain and sweet love
Underwood was killed at the age of 18, two months before Sophia was born.
