Sally Fields’ Son Thanks Mom For Finally Introducing Him To Adam Rippon

Olympic figure skater and newly minted cultural icon Adam Rippon and celebrity offspring Sam Greisman’s love is written in the stars. However, it took Adam Rippon a little while to figure this out.

After a highly publicized saga in which Greisman and his mother, actress Sally Fields, hatched a plot for Griesman and Rippon to meet and release a wellspring of eternal love between the two men, we are pleased to report that such a meeting has finally occurred.

Sam n’ Sal (as I like to think of them) went viral for a text exchange about the skater as Rippon-fandom reached fever pitch across the globe during the Pyeongchang Olympics.

This weekend, the 30 year-old Greisman and 28 year-old Rippon met via-Fields at the Human Rights Campaign gala in Los Angeles, officially making Sally Fields the coolest honorary-Jewish mom ever.
