Christmas came early this year for Amy Schumer, the father of Gordon. The “Trainwreck” star, the family bought the farm and surprised her father with the big news.

The Schumer family lost their farm to bankruptcy after Gordon was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Amy Schumer was 12 at the time.

Schumer posted an Instagram video of himself in the cornfield around the farm, with the caption “Video of the farm where I was running away in the cornfield and my dad was taunting me, because I wanted him to come with me… We lost the farm when we lost everything. But today I got to buy it back for him.”
