“Teen Mom OG” alum Farrah Abraham irritated some fans of the show with her Mother’s Day post on Instagram. In the post, she called herself a “widowed mom” in reference to the death of her daughter’s father in a car crash. However, the two were never married, therefore Abraham is not technically a widow.
“With all the emotion, love & strength at this time, never forgetting the tragic accident but also just as hard are Happy Birthday days-for my best friend, for my soul mate, my love of my life & Sophia’s father today marks your 30th birthday. As I’ve not been sleeping, crying, and remembering all of my therapy, trauma therapy I will say because of Mother’s Day here I wish no other woman to be a widow, a woman who has to hold it all together even when the world is against her. It always feels like things may get easier then we miss our special person on trips, or not able to visit their grave due to Covid 19 or amazing times you wish they could be there with or just talk,” she began the long message.
She continued, “From so much i’ve learned thanks to one amazing man being blessed in my life by God, I pray for all the other amazing, strong, positive moms out there who are doing it on their own and know I’m so proud of you all, all of you are amazing woman that God so loves. I wish being a widowed mom, and only parent could be easier but so many things effect courageous moms in our life journey, our children’s and our amazing family members who are so compassionate while feeling hurt themselves.”
“I’m blessed to have God in my life and my families and what brought Derek and I together and Sophia letting that be her focus rather then anything else. In loving memory & Happy Mother’s Day to all the strong widowed and single moms , mercy , grace & abundance . Thanks to our child -sophia being so understanding and loving . We’re hard enough on our selves and I’m blessed to have my daughter , my constant , my wisdom,” she concluded.
“Girl please. You hated Derek. You guys weren’t even together. Who are you trying to kid? Stop using his death for attention. Gets old!” one person replied.
“You have to be married to be a widow. You are not a widow,” another said.
“YOU. ARE. NOT. A. WIDOW!!!! You were NEVER MARRIED. Hell, you and ‘daddy Derrick’ were NOT even together when he died. He wasn’t even your bf,” a third noted.
“How in the world can you be a widow when you two weren’t married? Not making fun of the situation, but at least be honest. You’re a single mother, but no widow,” someone else commented.
