In 2008, while she was getting ready to appear in the reality television series, 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, the then 17-years-old Farrah Abraham found out that she was pregnant with her daughter.
Farrah’s pregnancy news was such a difficult one to bear as it even sparked a dispute between the TV star and her mother who prevented her from aborting the child. The reality star eventually had her baby the following year and also had her 16 and Pregnant episode aired across the U.S in the same year.
Despite her teen pregnancy drama, Farrah successfully rose to become a superstar in the movie industry. She stands out as one of the industry’s richest young mothers and absolutely owes her rise to prominence to the television series 16 and Pregnant which documents the lives of pregnant teenagers across the United States.
Here, you’ll get to know more about the television personality, her daughter, sister, dead boyfriend, and of course, how much she’s worth.
Who Is Farrah Abraham?
She is an American television personality born to Michael Abraham (father) and Debra Danielsen (mother) on May 31, 1991, in Omaha, Nebraska. Raised in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Farrah is of Danish and Sicilian descent from her mother’s side and has Syrian and Italian ancestry from her father’s side. The couple divorced after so many years of stormy marital relationship. Following the divorce, Debra has since remarried. She got married for the second time in 2017 to Dr. David Mer.
The Omaha-born TV personality’s daughter is called Sophia Laurent Abraham. She gave birth to her at a very young age, precisely on February 23, 2009. Sophia’s father Derek Underwood could not witness her birth as he passed on two months before she was born.
Born on May 8, 1990, in St. Joseph, Missouri, Derek passed away in a car crash on December 28, 2008, in Council Bluffs, Iowa, after he lost control of his car. Prior to his death, he was a waiter at Rick’s Café Boatyard in Omaha. He dated Farrah for two and a half years but they stopped communicating with each other four months before his tragic death.
In Farrah’s memoir titled My Teenage Dream Ended, she described Derek as her first love and only true love. Though Sophia looks like her father, Derek’s mom (Stormie Clark) claimed Farrah never told her son she was pregnant with his daughter. She has been in a legal battle with Abraham over Sophia as she wants the court to grant her the right to visit her grandchild.
Sister (Ashley Danielson)
Unlike her sister, Ashley has managed to relatively stay out of the spotlight over the years. While it is known to Teen Mom audiences that the two are sisters, only a few people actually know that the ladies are not full-blooded sisters – they are actually half-sisters.
As gathered, Ashley shares the same mom with Farrah but her biological father is not known to the public. In other words, Farrah’s father Michael is Ashley’s stepfather, however, she adopted her mother’s name “Danielson” as her surname.
Ashley is a mother of two. She had her first baby called Sylvia in 2012 while her second child, a son called Alx was welcomed into the world in 2015. The Teen Mom star may be Danielson’s half-sister but the two resemble each other uncannily in a very sisterly way.
In recent years, Ashley’s relationship with her sister Farrah Abraham has remained a mystery. According to reports, the siblings’ relationship turned sour in 2013 after Farrah Abraham was arrested by the police for driving under the influence of alcohol as they were returning from a party. The reality star is said to have blamed her half-sister for taking too much alcohol at the party.
Despite the ladies’ strained relationship, Ashley maintains a cordial relationship with her mother and grandmother. When asked why she stopped filming Teen Mom with other members of her family at a recent interview, she stated that she cherishes her privacy and has decided to channel her energy to more lucrative businesses. Ashley also claimed she turned down her family’s invitation to the show because it doesn’t pay her enough money but unverified sources reported that she wasn’t invited in the first place.
For a very long time, there have been a lot of conflicting reports on how much Farrah Abraham has amassed from her illustrious career. Though the reality star has been in the spotlight for over a decade, Farrah has always been tight-lipped about her assets.
Taunted as one of the wealthiest television personalities in the world right now, the actress boasts an estimated net worth of $5 million. According to credible sources, her money flows in from her wealth of business channels. Farrah was reportedly paid $30,000 per episode for her roles on 16 and Pregnant and the spin-off Teen Mom. The television star, as gathered, also rakes in a huge sum of money from her adult movies, minor roles on TV series, as well as her new bare-skinned videos on CamSoda.
Behind the camera, the young millionaire mother also makes cool money from marketing deals, brand endorsements, her sex toys line, as well as her own child clothing line. Abraham has a Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG sedan which she reportedly bought for $100,000. The car, as many believe, stands a witness to her impressive net worth and hard work.
