Can’t say we blame her! Sally Field has no qualms about being her son’s personal matchmaker — and has her sights set on this year’s most popular Olympic figure skater, Adam Rippon!
On Friday, February 16, Sam Greisman, the Mrs. Doubtfire actress’ 30-year-old son, shared a screenshot of their conversation in which they were talking about Team USA’s Rippon. “Sam… he’s insanely pretty. Find a way..” she advised during their chat. Alongside the tweet, Greisman wrote, “Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush.”

Field took it a step further by retweeting Greisman’s post and tagging Rippon, to which her son hilariously responded, “Yikes.”

While the 28-year-old athlete hasn’t responded just yet, he’s probably just busy celebrating. Not only did the Scranton, Pennsylvania, native just wrap up his first Olympic competition, but he also made history as the first openly gay man to compete for the United States in the 2018 Winter Games.
“I was recently asked in an interview what it’s like to be a gay athlete in sports,” the skater tweeted in December. “I said that it’s exactly like being a straight athlete. Lots of hard work, but usually done with better eyebrows.”
The Forest Gump star, 71, seems to really support the athlete. On February 13, she retweeted a post Rippon had written about Mike Pence’s controversial stance on gay and lesbian relationships, saying, “You’re amazing. Your Olympics won’t be about Mike Pence. They will be about your excellence and your grace. And all the young boys and girls you’re inspiring.”
