Better than a Christmas miracle. Amy Schumer bought back her family’s old farm and surprised her father, Gordon, on Monday, December 19, with an early Christmas present. The comedian has previously revealed that her family lost the farm and went bankrupt after her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 12.

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

The Trainwreck star has always had a soft spot for her father.

Back in April, she set up a FaceTime call with Gordon and his celebrity crush, Goldie Hawn, who she met while filming their new movie Snatched over the summer.

"Face timing with the goddess @goldiehawn who made my fathers dreams come true," the bestselling author captioned a video on Twitter of Gordon chatting with Hawn. "You're the love of my life. In real life," Schumer's father could be heard telling the First Wives Club actress in the video.
