“Wheel of Fortune” star Pat Sajak‘s wife is celebrating her birthday. And the couple’s daughter Maggie wished her mom lots of birthday wishes.

On her Instagram story, Maggie shared a throwback photo of the mother and daughter. In the photo, Maggie was just a kid. But she was already taking after her mother. The duo struck an iconic pose as they modeled for the camera. In the post, Maggie wrote, “Happy birthday to my bestie!”

The photo must be a favorite of Maggie’s. Because she also used the photo to wish her mother a happy birthday a year ago as well. That time, she posted the photo on Instagram with a sweet caption to mark the occasion. She wrote, “Always trying to be her mini-me, but who can blame me?! Happy birthday to the best mom (and best best friend) I could ever ask for!!”

Maggie Sajak uses the platform to post different modeling shots. But she also uses Instagram to share updates on her life and to celebrate all of the special occasions. For instance, she shared a throwback photo of her and her brother Patrick to celebrate National Siblings Day. She also recently took over the official “Wheel of Fortune” Instagram for College Week.

Maggie Sajak and ‘Wheel of Fortune’

Pat Sajak and Lesly Brown first met each other back in 1988 through a mutual friend of theirs. The couple ended up wedding just a year later in a whirlwind romance. The “Wheel of Fortune” star and Brown have been together ever since. The couple shares two children, Maggie and Patrick.

For the Sajaks, “Wheel of Fortune” has been a family affair over the years. For instance, Brown has made appearances on the show throughout the show’s history. In 2019, Brown appeared alongside her husband on the show during the closing segment. The show celebrated 7,000 episodes that year.

Maggie herself has appeared on the show. When her dad was out due to surgery, Vanna White took over as host in 2019. In a show of support, Maggie appeared on the show in White’s original role. She turned letters on the show as hostess, honoring her father. For Maggie, “Wheel of Fortune” has been a huge part of her life with her first appearances on the show as a toddler. It’s something that her father Pat Sajak has been in charge of for decades. And the game show holds a special place in the Sajak family.
