Mums are many things- hardworking, loving, caring, supportive, and at times, we can be a little bit embarrassing.

 

From time to time, we often make our children cringe, like when we sing along to chart music and get all the lyrics wrong, or in Sally Field’s case, when we try set them up with their crush.

 

When the Brothers and Sisters star found out her son Sam had a soft spot for Olympic athlete Adam Rippon she couldn't help but play matchmaker.

 

Alongside a screenshot of their text conversation, Sam wrote, “Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush.”

 

 

The Mrs Doubtfire actress couldn’t stop herself from helping her son out, so she did what any mum would do and contacted the figure skater her son fancies.

 

Sally simply tagged the athlete in her son’s tweet and left it at that.

 

Fans of the actress quickly responded to the matchmaker's actions, "Honestly, your mom is goals. I wish my mom was as accepting and encouraging as yours,” one fan shared.

 

 

Another joked, “Hi Sally. When you've finished setting your son up with Adam Rippon can you find me an Olympian too? I'm not too fussed, I'll even settle for a curler if I have to.”

 

One fan simply commented, “Mother of the year.”

 

 

“This is your greatest mom moment since you shot Kiefer Sutherland in Eye for an Eye,” shared one user.


Adam hasn’t responded to Sally’s tweet just yet, but who knows what the future may hold.
