It’s about time! After 10 years with beau John Donaldson, Wheel of Fortune’s Vanna White is finally ready to make it official.
"She wants to be married before she turns 65 next February," dishes a source, who says the blond beauty could tie the knot with the contractor, 56, as early as this summer!
According to the source, the pair have discussed having "an intimate ceremony in Hawaii" — and White would even like her costar, Pat Sajak, to walk her down the aisle! "Pat thinks John is a great guy, which means a lot to Vanna," spills the insider. "John visits the set all the time and gets along with the whole crew."
White called it quits on her 12-year marriage to George Santo Pietro — with whom she shares two grown kids — in 2002, "and it took her a long time to warm up to the idea of getting married again," the source adds.
"But John is so supportive, and they’re so simpatico they never even argue. He’s made Vanna a believer!"
In an interview with Closer Weekly in 2019, White admitted that marriage was not a big issue for her and her beau, but certainly didn't rule it out.
"We’ve been together for eight years and it seems to be working so we’re both happy, so in my eyes I feel — in both of our eyes — we feel married," she said. So I don’t think you necessarily have to have a piece of paper unless you want to. Everybody’s different, so for each his own."
"We're faced with a lot of positives and negatives, and we have to accept them and do whatever we can to get through it," she continued. "It's like if you break an arm — it takes time, but it does heal. Life is not perfect — just try to make the best of it. Be strong, be kind to people, and be happy."
