Sally Field might have a new career as a matchmaker!
The “Forrest Gump” actress’ 30-year-old son Sam Greisman finally met his “Olympic crush” Adam Rippon on Saturday night, nearly a month after revealing his mom tried to set them up!
The pair crossed paths at the 2018 Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Los Angeles, where the 28-year-old figure skater was honored with the Visibility Award for his work with the LGBTQ community.
Sam later shared a couple photos from the event on social media of the duo looking quite cozy. He hilariously captioned the posts, “Thanks, mom.”
During the 2018 Winter Olympics, Sally offered her son some dating advice after Sam revealed he had a crush on the Team USA athlete.
“Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush,” Sam tweeted, alongside a screenshot of Sally’s text message, which read, “Sam… he’s insanely pretty. Find a way…”

But Sally made sure that Adam really got the hint by retweeting the post and tagging him in it!
Adam publicly responded to the compliment a few days later during an interview with Buzzfeed. ”Sally! She bold,” he exclaimed, before adding, “Sam, your mom—I admire her. And I’m sure one day we’re going to meet! So thanks, Mom.”
Looks like Sally’s tactic definitely worked!
