Most children would love to give something back to their parents as a thank you for the endless amount of things moms and dads have done -- and continue to do -- over the years. Celebs are notorious for purchasing everything from new homes to cars for their parents, but news Amy Schumer gifted her dad the farm he once lost many years ago will tug at your heartstrings in a very special and sentimental way. Regardless of what you think about Amy Schumer and her humor, you have to admit that this is extremely sweet.


Schumer recently shared this throwback footage on Instagram of herself as a young gal in her dad's cornfield. The 35-year-old actress and comedian also revealed that her family lost the farm they once called home, but can now go back to create more memories as Amy purchased the property for her papa.

"We lost the farm when we lost everything else," Amy captioned on Instagram. "But today I got to buy it back for him."

Aww! How touching is this gift?!

Amy even shared a screenshot of her video chat with her father the day she purchased the farm. And judging by Amy's huge smile, I bet Dad was extremely shocked, happy, and probably full of tears.

Christmas definitely came early!

Today I bought my father's farm back.

E! reveals Amy Schumer's family experienced hardship when she was younger. Amy's father, Gordon Schumer, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) when she was just 12 that resulted in financial insecurities -- including banktrupcy and the family losing their farm. Though many years (decades) have passed since then, I can only imagine how much joy Amy feels knowing she can give back to her dad the place they once loved and enjoyed.

Like Amy, my family struggled with finances growing up -- to the point of having to move in with relatives at times and not having a place to call our own. I would love to be in a position one day to give my mother a gift like this that has so much sentimental value. It might not be a mega mansion but it would definitely represent a piece of our family's journey we were able to get back.

... And that's the gift that keeps on giving for time to come.

What a heartwarming story. Enjoy the farm, Dad!
