Pat Sajak Marriages

His most prized title, though? That’s being a father.  

Pat Sajak isn’t new to the married life by any means, though. He first walked with the aisle in 1979 with Sherrill Sajak. She has mostly stayed out of the public eye but credits herself with aiding in Sajak’s success. The exact reason behind the divorce hasn’t been disclosed, but the two parted ways in 1986. 

In 1989, Pat Sajak gave love another try when he tied the knot with Lesly Brown. The 56-year-old photographer has two children with Sajak. 

Let’s meet them.

Patrick Michael James Sajak

In 1990, Lesly gave birth to their first child, Patrick Michael James Sajak. Although Patrick made an appearance on the Wheel of Fortune once when he was young, his father wanted him to live a relatively normal life. 

While the two are still reportedly very close, Patrick has remained out of the spotlight for most of his life, and relatively little is known about the 30-year-old. 

Maggie Sajak

On the other hand, Maggie Sajak has followed in the footsteps of her famous father. She was born in 1995, and now at the age of 26, has appeared on TV on a number of occasions. 

After graduating from Princeton University, she followed her dreams of becoming a country music singer. According to Closer Weekly, Maggie has been playing the guitar since she was just 12-years-old. 

Maggie Sajak has released numerous singles since becoming an artist, including “Pretty on the Inside,” “Wild Boy,” and “First Kiss.”

Additionally, Maggie Sajak took over for her dad on Wheel of Fortune when Pat Sajak was rushed into emergency surgery in November of 2019. While Vanna White took the central position as host, Maggie stepped in for Vanna.
