Today Vanna White celebrates her not-so-baby boy’s 27th birthday. See the Wheel of Fortune star’s sweet message to him. Happy birthday, Nikko!

Proud mother Vanna White has taken to social media to wish her first child a happy birthday with a special message and throwback photo. 

“27 years ago today, this sweet angel came into our world. Happy Birthday to my kind, loving, and incredible son Nikko!”

The photo shows a beautiful, fresh-faced, 37-year-old Vanna White holding the baby that made her a mother. White sports medical bracelets and her hair back, and baby Nikko wears a blue beanie and is swaddled in a blanket. 

A very endearing photo, to say the least

Wheel of Fortune fans flooded into the comment section to also wish the co-star’s son a special day. 

“Beautiful picture, Vanna. Happy birthday, Nikko!” said one person, while another sent their love, saying, “Congratulations to you both. Love watching you.”

Vanna White’s Children and Boyfriend

Nikko graduated from Oregon State University and also attended the University of Arizona at one point. His profession is unclear. However, according to his Instagram, he is a big-time traveler. He recently shared photos from his trip across Europe.

Wheel of Fortune icon Vanna has always kept her personal life pretty private. This is why most people don’t even know that she has two children. 

However, Vanna White has two kids. We’ve already met Nikko (Nicholas), but Gigi (Giovana) is a 24-year-old beauty just like her mother. Both children are from her first and only marriage to restaurant owner George Santo Pietro. The two were married from 1989 to 2002. 

Vanna frequently shares sweet photos of both her kids on her Instagram. She is a proud mother. She gets to post as many forced family photos as she wants!

Gigi graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and is currently studying as an apprentice at a tattoo studio in Huntington Beach, California. According to her Instagram page, Gigi also likes photography, art, and drawing.

Furthermore, Vanna White may not be married, but she is also not on the market. 

“There’s my boyfriend right there, John,” White gushes during an interview with Drew Barrymore from January. “We’ve been together for nine years. We met through my best friend, Pam Stanley introduced us, and it’s been wonderful.”

Life seems to be good for Vanna. Healthy and beautiful children. A silver fox of a boyfriend. A great job that requires you to wear gorgeous dresses and turn letters on TV. Millions of adoring fans. What more could you ask for?
