Well, folks, we have officially welcomed in 2022! And, with a brand new year comes well wishes from people all over the world. Including Wheel of Fortune’s cohost, Vanna White.

On New Years Day, the longtime Wheel of Fortune star took to her Twitter account to wish us all a Happy New Year.

In the post, White shares a beautiful message for her fans; along with a glimpse into her own life with the people, she loves so much.

“From my family to yours… Happy New Year!” Vanna White writes in her New Years Day message.

The Wheel of Fortune star ends the sweet message with a touching red heart. We can certainly feel the love from Vanna as we enter this new year!

In the January 1 Tweet, Vanna White also includes a series of adorably sweet family photos.

It’s certainly a fun glimpse into the Wheel of Fortune star’s life. And, with all of the smiles filling the space in the new Twitter post, we can certainly tell it is going to be a New Year full of happiness and joy for Vanna White and her family.

Clearly, family is something Vanna White cherishes very deeply.

And, while she may be spending her New Year with her family at home, the game-show cohost and letter-turner has always been outspoken about how she views her Wheel of Fortune coworkers as members of her family.

‘Wheel of Fortune’s’ Vanna White Preps Maggie Sajak For First Big Role On Show

In fact, Vanna White had a big part in Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak’s daughter, Maggie getting her current position as Wheel’s social correspondent.

When Pat Sajak suffered a health scare in 2019, Wheel of Fortune showrunners knew that Vanna White would be the perfect person to stand in for the longtime game show host. The trouble came, however, in finding a replacement for Vanna as she stepped in for Sajak. Enter Sajak’s daughter, Maggie Sajak.

It was a perfect plan as each member of the Wheel family stepped in to make it work. However, there was one challenge White faced as she welcomed Maggie onto the stage…Maggie had never filled in such a role before.

So, the night before Vanna was to step into Pat Sajak’s role, and Maggie into Vanna’s, Vanna White gave the young Sajak a crash course on the skill.

“She gave me a little tutorial,” Maggie has said of Vanna’s training.

“Like on our refrigerator, of how to press the letters and how hard to press them and all of that,” the young Sajak continues.

“She was so gracious in teaching me, and you know, she had a big job to do that week too, filling in for my dad,” Maggie adds. So it was a new experience for both of us, and I’m really glad we were able to do that together.”
