Besides being a full-time host of the popular game show “Wheel of Fortune,” Pat Sajak has also been a full-time dad.
He is married to Lesly Brown-Sajak and the two have a son, Patrick, and a daughter, Maggie. Sajak and his wife live in Maryland and also have their second home in Los Angeles, California to be closer to the “Wheel of Fortune” studio.
Maggie Sajak recently posted an adorable video of her as a kid onto her Instagram Story. The video shows her mumbling in a typical toddler fashion and attempting to assemble a puzzle of the United States. She hilariously captioned the video, “same current mood, just studying for law school finals instead …”
Maggie Sajak first graduated from Princeton University and finished a postgraduate program at Columbia University. As of now, she is currently attending law school, and, similar to millions of other college students, is suffering through final exam time.
According to the “Wheel of Fortune” site, Maggie has even more on her plate than a typical law school student. She has recently taken on the role of the show’s online media correspondent. Through this role, she brings viewers an insider’s look at the show using behind-the-scenes features, interviews, and videos.
She said the “‘Wheel of Fortune’ staff and crew have always been like an extended family, and I’m thrilled to be working with them.”
Before she was working for the show, Maggie was paying visits while her dad was working. She first was seen on the studio stage when she was just a 1-year-old. Then in 2019, Pat Sajak underwent emergency surgery and had to take a break from the show. Vanna White took over as the host and Maggie took over White’s typical job.
She also briefly pursued a career in country music after releasing a few songs. Despite her father’s fame from “Wheel of Fortune,” Maggie has mostly situated herself away from the spotlight.

According to Parade, Lesly studied television production at the University of Maryland. After that, she went on the pursue a career as a model for Playboy and was once named “Miss Georgetown.” Lesly has since taken an all-new direction in her professional career. She is now a professional photographer.
The couple’s other son, Michael, is largely out of the spotlight. Both he and his sister would appear in sweet cameos on “Wheel of Fortune” when they were younger.
