Farrah Abraham was cheerleader, aspiring model and cook from Council Bluffs, Iowa, who found out she was pregnant at 16. Abraham decided to continue high school online. She also decided not to tell her ex-boyfriend personally about the child after he sends her threatening text messages. It was later revealed he then died in a car accident before the baby was born. In February 2009, Abraham gave birth to Sophia . After Sophia's birth, Farrah went without a car and struggled with her difficult relationship with her mother. In January 2010, Farrah's mother, Debra Danielson, was charged with assault in an Iowa court for hitting her. Due to the fight with her mom, Farrah and Sophia move into an apartment, then talk about moving into her mom's rental house across the street. She sees a therapist to discuss the rocky relationship with her family, as well as dealing with her emotions regarding Underwood and his death. Farrah eventually proves to Derek's family through a paternity test that Derek was indeed Sophia's father and was faced with a lawsuit by Derek's mom for grandparents visitation rights despite no previous contact with Sophia. Since the show ended Farrah moved away and attended cookery school, recorded songs, written childrens books and appeared in pornography.
