American comedian Amy Schumer gave her family one of the most poignant gifts for Christmas when she bought a farm.

But it wasn't just any farm, it was the farm she grew up with her family until they lost it to bankrupcy. Schumer shared a cute video clip of herself in the corn fields as a child on Instagram and also shared the Facetime clip when she told her dad that she had bought his farm back.

Schumer said that "We lost the farm when we lost everything else. But today I got to buy it back for him."

Schumer's father Gordon has multiple sclerosis and lives in assisted living, a fact that's played out in Schumer's biggest movie role to date, Trainwreck, where her father in the movie also has MS and lives in a care home.
