Where Is Sophia Abraham While ‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham Is In Dubai?
She may no longer be on MTV’s Teen Mom anymore, but we’re still seeing plenty of Farrah Abraham. Thanks to her Instagram and Twitter, she’s working hard to keep herself and her 10-year-old daughter, relevant in the fast-paced social media landscape. And while she was deeply criticized on the show for the way she parents her daughter and treats her mother, Farrah’s still willing to give the world the true, unadulterated version of herself no matter how much hate she receives.
Most recently, Farrah documented her trip to Dubai — and while she often takes her daughter out of the country with her, it seems Sophia was missing from the trip. So, where was Sophia? Here’s what we think.
Farrah Abraham has spent time in Dubai since June
Farrah never quite gave the details of her Dubai trip on Instagram, but she did seem to document the highlights — and fans certainly have their own theories about what she’s up to, too. According to her socials, she’s been in Dubai since June. And while Farrah’s no stranger to lavish vacations, it does seem odd that she didn’t take her daughter, Sophia, with her — especially because Farrah has stated she homeschools Sophia so the child can have these once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
As Farrah told In Touch Weekly, “I decided to do that because, at school, I didn’t really want to make it about the bullying, dating, those things. It’s focusing more on her studies, traveling the world if she wants to do that while she is going to school.” And while many have criticized Farrah’s homeschooling decision, it does seem like Sophia has been to many incredible locales with her infamous mom over the years.
Sophia seems to be spending more time than ever with Farrah’s mother, Debra Danielsen
Debra Danielsen became just as infamous as Farrah thanks to Teen Mom. While Danielsen always seemed to mean well, she and Farrah could never see eye to eye — and many believe Farrah was way too rude to her own mother on the show, too. Even so, it seems Danielsen loves spending time with her granddaughter, as we’ve been seeing more photos and videos of Sophia on Danielsen’s Instagram page than ever before.
Danielsen has been posting videos of Sophia picking cherries, doing her school work, and baking in the kitchen since June. Fans can assume that Sophia has been in Danielsen’s care while Farrah is doing business in Dubai. Given Farrah and Sophia’s latest videos on their Instagrams, it appears Farrah may be back and Sophia may also be in her care, but the child looked like she had a ton of fun with her grandmother.
Fans think Sophia looks way happier with her grandmother
Farrah’s parenting tactics are incredibly controversial. She wants to make sure her daughter is a go-getter, smart businesswoman, and world traveler — but many of Farrah’s followers believe Sophia should spend more time just being a kid. The videos of Sophia on Danielsen’s channel show her doing everyday, normal kid activities, and fans believe Sophia looks much calmer and happier in this environment.
“You’re such a good grandma. We never get to see her doing fun ‘normal’ kid stuff like this when she’s with her mom,” one fan commented on this video of Sophia making pudding. Another added, “Glad to see she gets to do normal kid things when she is with gramma. Her mother pushes too many adult things on her.” And on another video of Sophia picking cherries, a follower noted, “This is so beautiful and refreshing to see her being a kid for once. Her mother is forcing her into such a negative lifestyle.”
We’re sure we’ll get plenty of footage of Sophia and Farrah jet-setting across the world together again soon — but for now, we’re all happy Sophia spent some quality time with her grandmother.
