Adam Rippon is officially America’s Sweetheart.
While celebrating winning bronze at the Olympics, the U.S. figure skater took a moment to dedicate this special occasion to his mom… and also Reese Witherspoon! Duh! Reese is responsible for everything good in this world.
Adam quipped to the press:
“I owe this medal to my mom, but more to Reese Witherspoon because she has more Instagram followers.”
The Big Little Lies star has been tweeting about the 28-year-old athlete for the past several days — and it certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed!
Watch the hilarious tribute to the actress (below)!
