The first post features a photo of Maggie from her early childhood, with Lesly looking absolutely gorgeous in a shimmering white dress. Appropriately, Maggie writes “Happy Lesly Day!” on the photo.

The daughter of Wheel of Fortune star Pat Sajak then follows up with what could only be described as a home movie classic. Maggie and her mother are having a tea party. A little Maggie Sajak is “pouring tea” out for her mother in the first video. The 26-year-old captioned the video, “My favorite tea party.”

The next clip features Maggie and Lesly enjoying said tea. Sweet memories like that are the things that make Mother’s Day special.

Wheel of Fortune Star Pat Sajak Felt Bad for Maggie, Lesly During 2019 Hospitalization

Back in 2019, Pat Sajak had a pretty significant health scare. The Wheel of Fortune star needed emergency surgery for an intestinal blockage he had, and Sajak described the pain as unbearable.

While Sajak was the one who did most of the physical suffering, he said his mind couldn’t help but think about Maggie and Lesly. There wasn’t much doctors could do initially thanks to his blood pressure being drastically low, leading to a moment of uncertainty.

“No one knew,” he said. “It was tough on Lesly, my wife, and our daughter was with me and, they were, you know, they didn’t know. I mean you go in, and they don’t know if I’m coming out.”

Sajak also discussed his thoughts while he was on the potential verge of death. His mind wasn’t thinking about death. Instead, he was thinking about his family dealing with the aftermath.

“I was hearing their voices, and I thought, ‘Boy their lives are going to change now,’ and I felt badly for them,” he said. “I didn’t feel badly about dying, I felt badly that they were gonna have to deal with the aftermath.”
