While Wheel of Fortune fans are familiar with host Pat Sajak's daughter, Maggie, (not only did she act as the show's social correspondent, but she's also subbed in as the letter board turner), his 30-year-old son, Patrick James Michael, has stayed out of the spotlight and forged a path of his own.

Last year on the game show, the longtime host and his daughter sat down for an episode ahead of Father's Day, where Sajak joked that the holiday isn't as widely celebrated in their household as Mother's Day is.

"Fathers get a raw deal where that’s concerned," he said of gifts. "I mean, mothers get roses, they get breakfast in bed, I don’t even get a petunia and a waffle."

He works in the medical field

During an episode of Wheel of Fortune in 2021, Sajak took a moment to do some "parental bragging" about his boy, revealing, "He's made it through medical school, and he is now officially Dr. Sajak, and we're all thrilled."

"He insists that I call him Dr. Sajak. [My wife] Lesly and I couldn't be prouder," he continued. "I tried to get [Patrick] into geriatrics, but he refused. But that's a personal thing."


In May, Maggie made a congratulatory post on Instagram. "My big brother officially became a doctor today, and I am the MOST proud," she captioned the sweet pic of them together, "Congrats @patricksajak, MD!!!🩺👨🏼‍⚕️."

He's an athletic, outdoorsy guy

When he's not working, his hobbies include "golf, hockey, baseball, boating and meteorology."

He's a fan of the Terps
