Whether you love her or hate her, there's no denying this was a classy move. On Monday, May 8, Farrah Abraham visited Derek Underwood's grave. Underwood, as many know, is her 8-year-old daughter Sophia's father. The Teen Mom OG star shared a photo on Instagram of Underwood's grave site, which was surrounded by flowers, stuffed animals, and baseball bats.

Despite the fact that Abraham wasn't on speaking terms with Underwood at the time of his death (when she was 8 months pregnant), it's still heartbreaking to think that he never got to meet his daughter. Hopefully, Abraham keeps his spirit alive for Sophia as much and as often as possible. In her book My Teenage Dream Ended, the mom of one said that she and her daughter visit his grave every year on his birthday. "Every year, we go to Derek's grave site," Abraham wrote in her book. "We take pictures, we record it, and I have a whole baby box for Sophia with letters and pictures telling how and why things happened, and why I'm here today alone." 

In her book, Abraham also described what it was like to hear about Underwood's death. "I got off the phone and tried to calm down, but my mind was racing. Derek was the father of the baby I was carrying inside me. He was my first love, my only true love," Abraham said. "Now Derek was gone forever, and so was my happy ending."

She's not everyone's cup of tea, but from the sound of things, Abraham is doing an okay job of explaining to Sophia what happened to her father -- and that can't be an easy thing to do no matter who you are.
