Farrah Abraham Defends Daughter Sophia, 11, From Trolls Shaming Her For Having Fake Nails

Farrah Abraham finds nothing wrong with her 11-year-old daughter Sophia's long, fake nails, which her fans saw in a recent video on social media! In fact, the former reality star encourages 'nail wellness.' Here's what she had to say to critics...

Farrah Abraham fully supports her 11-year-old daughter, Sophia Abraham‘s love for beauty, including her fake nails. The Teen Mom OG alum, 29, showed off the duo‘s manicures in an Instagram video on Wednesday, August 5. Although, Farrah was advertising a new Instagram filter, it was Sophia’s fake nails that sparked negative comments from internet trolls.
“Allowing Sophia to be creative in her art and discovery of beauty is nothing to be ashamed of. … I’m happy Sophia will be prepared and educated about nail wellness,” Farrah said in defense of her daughter’s nails to In Touch Weekly.  “More parents should guide and educate their children to be prepared for the future,” she added.

After being subject to harsh criticism on social media, Farrah urged to the outlet that the “shaming” of children needs to end. She spoke out after Instagram critics voiced opinions that Sophia is “too young” to have the “adult” manicure.

Farrah previously expressed her daughter’s love for makeup in an exclusive interview with HollywoodLife at BeautyCon in 2019. “I would hope that Sophia can express herself however she wants in a safe and happy place,” Farrah said last August, explaining that her daughter “doesn’t need to feel ashamed for wearing makeup at any age. It’s normal, it’s healthy, it’s beautiful, it’s great.”

The entrepreneur went on to note that no matter what decisions she makes concerning her daughter’s interests, she would get mom-shamed either way. “It’s a good time to teach her about cleaning her face and good skincare with it, which I really love,” Farrah explained, expressing, “As a mom, I just want to set her up for success.”

At the time, Farrah was joined by Sophia on the BeautyCon red carpet, where the youngster was decked out in sparkles and pink eyeshadow. Farrah gave birth to her daughter, the author’s only child, in 2009 with her late boyfriend, Derek Underwood.
