Adam Rippon on 'Meet My Mom' and in Stars on Ice at Key Arena this Saturday 5/19

Last week Reese Witherspoon's media company, Hello Sunshine, launched a new show just in time for Mother's Day called 'Meet My Mom.' Premiering on Facebook's video platform Facebook Watch, each episode consists of an honest and entertaining chat between one of your favorite celebrities and their mom.

In the first episode, Olympic figure skating superstar Adam Rippon goes toe to toe with his mom Kelly about chasing his Olympic dreams, about her raising six exceptional kids, and the Pyeongchang moment that meant the most to both of them.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Adam Rippon will be appearing in Stars on Ice at Key Arena this Saturday, May 19, at 7:30pm featuring many of the U.S. Olympic Team skaters from the recent Winter Olympics in an exciting exhibition performance. Tickets: https://www.keyarena.com/events/detail/stars-on-ice-2018.]

Regarding Adam's coming out as gay, Kelly recounted being fearful for one reason: the prejudice within United States Figure Skating. 'That's one of the things that we might not have agreed on, right? For one reason: I knew the talk and the prejudice that existed in the sport.'

But then Kelly learned a valuable lesson regarding personal identity and authenticity: 'Suddenly, now, I knew you were mature enough to say, 'The Olympics is awesome, but if I can't be who I am at the Olympics, it's not so awesome.'

On her own personal 'Olympic moment': 'When your brother&when Brady hugged you and wouldn't let you go, and I saw two grown men just respect each other so much, crying, and seeing, like, his shoulders heaving, with that kind of respect for you, that was probably my Olympic moment.'

You can watch the full episode here:

'Meet My Mom' will air throughout the month of May and feature other celebrities in conversation with their mothers, including Reese Witherspoon and her mom Betty, Lilly Singh and her mom Malwinder, model Ashley Graham and her mom Linda, and 'Westworld's Leonardo Nam and his mom Laura.
