Adam posted a selfie to Instagram, posing with new man, Finnish-born Jussi-Pekka Kajaala.

 He explained the pair have been ‘been talking for the past seven months” before they recently “started to hang out a little bit more,’ to PEOPLE.

‘It’s fresh! I’m fresh.

‘Now that I’m even busier, I thought it was a better time [for us] to hang out.’

‘Sam, your mom – I admire her!’

Adam and Sam hit the headlines when Sally, who won the Best Actress Oscar for Norma Rae, tried to set them up.

The Lincoln star’s son shared screen grabs of texts between the two, in which Sally said: ‘Sam… he’s insanely pretty. Find a way.’ Sally then retweeted the exchange, tagging Adam.

Adam initially addressed the attempted set up by saying: ‘Sam, your mom — I admire her. And I’m sure one day we’re going to meet! So thanks, mom.’

Adam of course shot to international fame after winning a Bronze medal as part of the US figure skating team at the Winter Olympics.
