Sally Field may have a second career as a matchmaker.

The Oscar-winning actress' son, Sam Greisman, met his crush Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon this weekend after his mother urged the athlete to go on a date with him in a February tweet.

During the Winter Olympics, Greisman shared a screenshot of a text exchange between himself and Field, where she called Rippon "insanely pretty," and encouraged him to "find a way" to meet the skater. She then took matters into her own hands, tagging Rippon in the tweet, making sure he saw the message.

A few days later, Rippon acknowledge the tweet, speaking with BuzzFeed: "Sam, your mom, I admire her. And I'm sure one day we're going to meet! So thanks, mom."

It finally happened Sunday in Los Angeles at the Visibility Award at the Human Rights Campaign gala. Greisman took to Twitter to share a photo of himself with Rippon at the event, writing, "Thanks, mom."

Rippon responded to the snap with three crying-from-laughing emojis, adding, "This incredible caption. THNX, SAL!"






During the HRC gala, Rippon gave a moving acceptance speech. It was presented by fellow out Olympian, Gus Kenworthy. Watch that below.
