Sally Field and her son, Sam Greisman

Actor Sally Field’s son Sam Greisman has apologized to Adam Rippon after his mum revealed that he had a crush on the Olympic star.

Mother’s certainly like to do what is best for their children, and Sally tried to matchmake her son to Rippon – but left the poor chap embarrassed in the process.

Now, 30-year-old filmmaker Sam has apparently sent Rippon, 28, a direct message on Twitter, following the figure skater’s reaction to the tweet.

In his message he apologized for ‘his mom embarrassingly trying to set them up,’ an Olympic insider told The New York Post’s Page Six on Tuesday.

The publication also revealed that the Bronze-medal winning Olympic hero said that he would not rule out a meeting with Griesman.

‘I’m sure one day we’re going to meet,’ he reportedly said. Happy days!

Over the weekend, Field texted her son Sam Greisman that Rippon is ‘insanely pretty’. She added her son should ‘find a way’.

Greisman tweeted the text to exchange… which Field subsequently quote re-tweeted and tagged Rippon. Her son’s response? ‘Yikes.’

It was a perfect mom moment that quickly went viral and everyone began cheering for Sam and Adam — as well as Field being mom goals.

What everyone wanted to know, though, was Rippon’s reaction.

When the skater stopped by BuzzFeed, they asked him about the matchmaking moment.

First he screamed. Then he had to admire her sheer courage. ‘She bold,’ he said, clearly delighted.

But then he turned his attention to Sam and sweetly added: ‘Sam, your mom — I admire her. And I’m sure one day we’re going to meet! So thanks, mom.’

Field also told BuzzFeed that she needs to ‘bud out now … but I would like to see Adam in the family’.

This may be the greatest romance to ever possibly bloom on the Olympic stage and we’re rooting for them.
