Amy Schumer is a good daughter, though her parents likely already knew that—she’s smart, funny, and a solid role model for young women. But this holiday season Schumer is taking her Good Daughter title to a whole new level.
The 35-year-old comedian has bought back her childhood ranch, which her dad lost years ago, and in doing so, is spreading smiles not just on the faces of her family, but on all of us, too.
When Schumer was just 12, her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and her family went bankrupt covering the copious medical costs.
“We lost the farm when we lost everything else. But today I got to buy it back for him,” Schumer wrote on Instagram.
She uploaded a super heartwarming vid of her as a little girl, weaving her way through a corn field on the farm.
“I was running away in the cornfield and my dad was taunting me because I wanted him to come with me,” she wrote. We always pictured Schumer as a farm girl—there’s something about her style of up-front humour that we reckon comes from those corn fields.
Schumer also posted a pretty adorable photo of her Facetiming with her papa, which we presume is how she broke the news, captioning it: “Today I bought my father’s farm back.” It’s got nearly 125,000 likes, and as far as we’re concerned, it deserves way more.
Not all of us are able to buy back our parents’ past properties, but it is a good example of a thoughtful gift. We’re taking inspiration and looking for some bits of nostalgia from our old man’s youth to give to him this Christmas.
