Pat Sajak Joins Pal Vanna White and Daughter Maggie During First Outing Post-Surgery

Lookin’ good, Pat Sajak! The beloved Wheel of Fortune star appeared to be in great spirits as he enjoyed his first public outing since undergoing emergency surgery in early November 2019. Pat was joined by costar Vanna White and daughter Maggie Sajak as they dined at Craig’s restaurant on Thursday, January 9.

The 73-year-old was all smiles as he posed for photos alongside Vanna, 62, and his youngest child following a scrumptious meal at the Hollywood hotspot. Despite undergoing a procedure to correct a blocked intestine a few months prior, Pat looked better than ever during his fun-filled night.

The former news reporter — who shares Maggie, 25, and son Patrick Sajak, 29, with longtime wife Lesly Brown — looked as handsome as always as he donned a burgundy dress shirt underneath a gray blazer. Pat tied his look together as he sported matching dress pants and accessorized with a brown belt and brown shoes.

The ladies, on the other hand, looked stunning as they each stood beside the iconic game show host. Vanna looked incredible as she donned an all-black ensemble, while Maggie looked bright and beautiful in a fuschia-colored top and black slacks.

The trio’s outing comes days after Maggie appeared on Wheel of Fortune for the first time since her debut in 1996. During the Monday, January 6 episode, Pat’s daughter was revealed as a special guest as she took the stage in a gorgeous red minidress. The blonde beauty filled in as the show’s letter-turning model as Vanna took on the job of the temporary host. She even dished that dad Pat was doing “great!”

As the Emmy Award winner has enjoyed some R&R following his medical scare, Vanna has been filling in as the show’s host. Although she told Closer Weekly it was “scary” to take on the role, the South Carolina native couldn’t feel luckier to have the viewers’ support.

“You know, I’m getting some great feedback,” she exclusively shared with Closer. “It was very hard for me to watch because I don’t know, I think people don’t like to see themselves in pictures or to see themselves in videos or whatever, so it was kind of hard to watch because I was very nervous doing the show. But I did it and again, the feedback has been great. And the fans have been very supportive so that makes me feel good.”

We hope Pat continues to feel better!
