Sally Field is playing matchmaker for her son and this Olympian

She's like the ultimate Irish mammy.

When it comes to our love lives, if you find yourself single for a little longer than your family deems is necessary, you can expect them to intrude.


Yes, it goes from just a standard grilling about possible options to your number and profile picture being shared with said possible options. Well, it's good to know that that isn't any different when your family are Hollywood A-listers.

As the world looks on at this year’s Olympics, many standout stars have captured the eyes of viewers (and their mothers).

And Sally Field seems to think she’s found her son’s perfect match in the shape of US figure skater, Adam Rippon.

Adam Rippon made headlines this year as he won a bronze medal as part of the US figure skating team and became the first openly gay US male athlete to win a medal at the Winter Olympics.

But Sally pointed out another impressive factor about the Olympian in her texts to her son, Sam, saying:

“Sam… he’s insanely pretty. Find a way.”


Sharing a screenshot of the text he received from his Oscar-winning mother, Sam said:

“Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush.”


The post has since gone viral with over 22,000 likes on Twitter. But Sally’s attempts haven’t ended there, she’s using her pull to make this romance happen and tagged Adam Rippon in a retweet.

As of yet, Adam has yet to respond but we’re hopeful.
