Sam Greisman, the son of Hollywood actress Sally Field, has discussed meeting his crush Adam Rippon for the first time.

Sam met Olympian Adam last week at the at the Human Rights Campaign Gala Dinner in New York City.

He says on the The Scott McGlynn Show podcast: ‘I was very shy, and a little embarrassed but he’s a very cool nice guy. It was totally fine!’

On the possibility of the pair becoming an item, Sam furthermore added: ‘Adam’s very busy–  he hasn’t got time to be dating or doing anything like that. He’s conquering the world right now…’

‘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.
