Farrah Abraham Shocks Critics With Her Age in an Instagram Post

It’s fair to say that Farrah Abraham grew up in the public eye. At age 16 she was cast in the popular MTV show,16 & Pregnant. Following the success of that show, she was also cast in the wildly popular spinoff series, Teen Mom. The show followed Abraham (and three other young mothers) doing their best to raise their kids despite their young age. In fact, Abraham’s daughter was even born on MTV and the pair are both seeking careers in the entertainment industry at present.

Furthermore, she still maintains a fan base who are interested in her day-to-day life. On Instagram, Abraham boasts 2.6 million fans and she frequently keeps them updated via photos and videos. Recently, Abraham made a post to celebrate her birthday. However, some critics were shocked when they discovered her age.
