Amy Schumer Buys Back the Farm Her Family Lost… And Gives It to Her Dad.

Amy Schumer didn’t want to wait to give her dad Gordon his Christmas present this year…because this was no ordinary gift.

This year, Schumer bought her dad a farm — the same farm they lost when her dad developed multiple sclerosis and the family subsequently went bankrupt.

Schumer shared her dad’s reaction on Instagram when she told him what she did for him.

Today I bought my father's farm back.

Schumer was just 9 when her dad was diagnosed. Their family struggled financially, forcing them to leave the farm. The difficulty forced young Amy to develop her sense of humor to cope.

The comedian and writer has always been generous with her dad. Earlier this year she set up a FaceTime call between her dad and actress Goldie Hawn, one of Gordon’s favorite stars.

Buying back the farm they lost, however, might just be one of his favorite Christmas surprises of all time — and a dream come true.
