On Instagram, Farrah shared photos of herself and Sophia visiting Derek’s grave. This is something she has done in the past as well to ensure her daughter knows about her father. Along with the photos, she also included a video.
Farrah also posted a Facebook update in which she included several photos of her and Derek when they were teenagers. One photo shows Farrah in a pink formal dress next to Derek, the two presumably at a dance, and another shows them together in high school with Farrah wearing her cheerleading uniform. Farrah also included a picture of Derek by himself smiling.
MTV filmed Farrah for 16 and Pregnant in 2009, which followed her through her pregnancy and birth of daughter Sophia. Sophia was born in February, nearly two months after the passing of Derek. After that, MTV continued to follow four of the girls from the first season of 16 and Pregnant, including Farrah. Teen Mom (later called Teen Mom OG) followed Farrah along with Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell. Fans watched over the years as Farrah raised Sophia. Farrah no longer appears on the show, but fans still follow her journey through social media.
