Pat Sajak, widely known as the host of the popular game show “Wheel of Fortune,” has been married to his wife, Lesly Brown, for nearly as long as he’s been hosting the show.
Their love story, which began as a friendship, has blossomed into a long-lasting partnership that has seen them through various stages of life.
Pat Sajak Wife: Who is Lesly Brown?
Lesly Brown and Pat Sajak’s story began in 1988 when they met through mutual friends. Although their initial connection was as friends, their relationship eventually evolved into a romantic one, leading to their marriage the following year.
The couple’s private nature extends to their family life as well. Pat Sajak and Lesly Brown are parents to two children, a daughter named Maggie and a son named Patrick. Their family dynamic has been one of cherished privacy, although they have made occasional appearances on the Wheel of Fortune show.
Before meeting Pat Sajak, Lesly Brown pursued a career as a model and aspired to be an actress. She even posed for Playboy’s “Women of Washington” issue. She graduated from the University of Maryland in 1986 with a degree in television production, showcasing her passion for the entertainment industry.
Their paths crossed in 1988 at the grand opening of a friend’s sports bar. Interestingly, there were no immediate romantic sparks between them. Pat Sajak humorously recollected that he hadn’t even mentioned Lesly during his car ride home from the event.
However, over the course of the summer in 1989, Pat proposed to Lesly with a 3-carat marquise-shaped diamond ring.
A few months later, they exchanged vows in a warm ceremony surrounded by close family and friends at a Catholic church in Annapolis, Maryland. Vanna White, Pat Sajak’s Wheel of Fortune co-host, was also present to celebrate their union.
Lesly and Pat are proud parents to their daughter Maggie and son Patrick.
