Unlike the other teen moms on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, Farrah Abraham’s storyline had nothing to do with the father of her child. Farrah has said that he’s not involved in her life, but it’s not just because he and Farrah had a bad breakup – it’s because he’s dead. Derek Underwood, Farrah’s ex, died in a car accident while she was still pregnant. Farrah is not in touch with Derek’s family, although considering the drama that went down in her own family this past season (her mother Debra was arrested for assaulting Farrah, and charges are being pressed) it might be a good idea for Farrah to build a relationship with them.
Below, the obituary for Derek:
Derek Anthony Underwood, age 18, of Council Bluffs, Iowa passed away December 28, 2008, from injuries suffered in a motor-vehicle accident.
Derek was born May 8, 1990, in St. Joseph, Missouri to Stormie Clark and Jerry Underwood. He moved to Council Bluffs 10 years ago and graduated from Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson High School in 2008. Derek was a waiter/server at Rick’s Boatyard in Omaha for the past year.
He is survived by his mother and stepfather, Stormie and Mike Clark of Council Bluffs; father, Jerry Underwood of St. Joe, Missouri; sisters, Alissa and Kassy Underwood both of Council Bluffs; grandmother, Rose Hawkins; great grandmother, Catherine Rice; aunt, Dawn Hawkins; uncles, Rick, Tony and Adam Hawkins all of St. Joe.
Visitation with the family, Tuesday, 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Cutler-O’Neill-Meyer-Woodring Funeral Home in Council Bluffs. Funeral service, Friday, 1:00 p.m. at the Meierhoffer Funeral Home in St. Joe. Reverend Gene Lee will officiate. Interment Memorial Park Cemetery, St. Joe.
There’s no mention of Farrah in this, and no mention of Sophia (who wasn’t born yet). From the previews, it looks like Derek’s identity and his death might finally be addressed this year on Teen Mom.
Update: The good folks at Starcasm were able to grab a photo of Farrah and Derek from Farrah’s Facebook page.
