"I know I'm my mother's favorite skater. Here's the thing - I was sleeping on Shawn Mendes".

"I'm sorry?", asked Ellen, who got what he was saying after a bit of clarification.

She went on to ask Rippon about his celebrity crushes and about Sally Field, who tried to set Rippon up with her son.

Adam Rippon, America's sweetheart since the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, appeared on Ellen DeGeneres's show for the first time on Thursday, and it was a mutual lovefest that also took aim at Mike Pence and his risky, prehistoric views about LGBT people.

"I said, 'I admire your mom so much because she has courage.' If there is anything I admire, it's some hutzpah and she definitely has it", Rippon told DeGeneres.

Ellen complimented his taste, before recommending that he focus on more realistic prospective partners.

Then it all clicked: "Sleeping like you had not paid attention, I see..."

Adam added: "I don't think he has a real concept of reality".

Watch the sweet moment below, where Rippon also adorably reveals the names of his childhood goldfish.

Pence issued a statement through press secretary Alyssa Farah to USA Today after Rippon told the news outlet that Pence believed that gay people are "sick".

The Olympian is now working with GLAAD's youth engagement programme, a role which he said he found meaningful. "When I was young, to have had somebody out there to look up to... it would have made a world of difference, it would have changed my life".
