Farrah’s only child took to her Instagram Stories to share various now-deleted snaps, however, Reddit was able to grab one of them, which included the tween posing with Derek’s dad, Jerry.

“Love You Grandpa,” the 12-year-old wrote over the photo showing her next to a smiling Jerry.

Fans were all about the pic, as they took to the comments section to react, with one person writing: “I’m really glad she still spends time with him.”

Another added: “I’m glad Sophia gets one little bit of normalcy in her life, even if it’s rare occurrence that she gets to be around it.

“Maybe when she’s a bit older she’ll grow closer to Daddy Derek’s side of the family, leading her to a better, more normal life? Wishful thinking?”

Derek was only 18 years old when he passed away in a car accident, one month before their daughter Sophia was born.

On December 28 of that year, he allegedly lost control of his car while he was driving.

It skidded and flipped over onto a power pole, killing Derek and fellow passenger Zachary Mendoza.
