Amy Schumer Gives Back to her Dad in the Sweetest Way- Buying Her Childhood Farm

Written by Katie Brady

The holidays are upon us and it’s the season for giving. I think most people grow up and enjoy giving back to their parents. Parents spend their lives bettering their children, so it always feels good to give back to them.

Comedienne and actress Amy Schumer recently gave her dad an early Christmas present that means the world to both of them.

When Schumer was 9, her father was sadly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and her family went bankrupt. Losing everything also brought the loss of their farm. The farm that meant so much to the actress. The farm was taken away when she was just 12.

On Monday, Schumer shared a FaceTime still of her father’s emotional reaction to her gift. In the still, Amy is beaming with a radiant smile ear to ear. What an amazing thing. To be able to give back such a special gift to someone so very important to you.

She also shared a video of when she was younger, playing on the farm. Showing yet again, how special her gift was.

Earlier this year, Amy gifted her dad with another gift. A FaceTime chat with his celebrity crush- Goldie Hawn.

Parents put up with a lot because of their kids. Amy is setting out to reward her dad with kindness. I can’t think of a better way to spend your money.

 

Today I bought my father’s farm back.
