While the rest of us were too busy daydreaming about Adam Rippon, Sally Field seized her moment.

Over the weekend, she 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. And we finally have it.

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.
