Pat Sajak has been a staple on Wheel of Fortune for decades, but he plays a much more important role in the lives of his family. Along with his wife, Lesly Brown, the legendary TV host is the loving dad of two kids, Patrick and Maggie.
Before he wed Lesly, Pat was married to his first spouse, Sherrill Sajak. The former couple exchanged vows in 1979, and after holding off from welcoming any children together, the two eventually split in 1986. Shortly after, he fell in love with Lesly, and the pair exchanged vows in 1989.
The following year in 1990, Pat and his brunette beauty started their family, welcoming their first child, a son named Patrick. The couple’s youngest child, daughter Maggie, was born less than five years later in 1995.
Throughout the years, viewers became familiar with Pat’s kids as they occasionally visited their father on the set of the hit game show. As Maggie grew up, she followed in her dad’s famous footsteps, earning the title of guest host on Wheel of Fortune.
In January 2020, the blonde beauty proved TV-hosting runs in their family as she joined Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune at the time her dad was recovering from a November 2019 surgery. In order for Vanna to host the show, Maggie filled in as the sensational letter-turner.
After appearing on the program for a few episodes, Maggie marveled over the unforgettable experience on Instagram. “Last show!” she gushed. “I am so grateful for the love and support from my family, the @wheeloffortune family, @officialvannawhite and all of you.”
The Princeton University alum also shared a snap while “celebrating [the] fun week” with her “two favorite hosts” Pat and Vanna at dinner. “Lot of laughs,” Maggie penned in the caption.
While the Emmy-winning star doesn’t have his own Instagram account, it’s not uncommon to find sweet pics of Pat and his kids on Maggie’s page. In June 2020, the country singer uploaded a lovely family photo with her dad and brother, jokingly writing, “Happy Father’s Day to our father who won’t see this!”
