Why Does Farrah Abraham From 'Teen Mom' Call Her Dad "Michael?"

Pin It
It's a question every 'Teen Mom' fan has been asking for years! Since the beginning days of MTV's hit reality show Teen Mom, fans have wondered why one of the mom's, Farrah Abraham, always refers to her father as "Michael" instead of "dad."

After different reports of her not liking him or the fact that she's just a spoiled brat, Farrah finally cleared up everything during the recent part one of the Teen Mom reunion special.

"It's hard to call your parents mom and dad when you've lost respect for them. My parents have been fighting my whole life and after I had Sophia, they finally got divorced."

Farrah has also said that she calls him by his first name because she has a different dad than her sister and does it out of respect for her.

Either way, at least we finally get some idea why she doesn't call him dad!

And if he wasn't a great father to her, that definitely doesn't show now. He and Farrah's mother do a lot for Farrah and her baby! Check out the pic she just tweeted of baby Sophia and her dad Michael together.

Do you think it's rude for Farrah to call her dad "Michael?" Do you think it's weird? Let us know!
