Congrats Patrick Sajack, MD!!!" she captioned to post. APP USERS CLICK HERE The "Wheel of Fortune" host also announced the news during an episode of the game show in 2021. "Do you mind if I do a little parental bragging here?" Sajak told White, per People magazine. "So, you know my son, Patrick, you've known him all his life. Well, he's made it through medical school, and he is now officially Dr. Sajak, and we're all thrilled." Sajak joked "he insists that I call him Dr. Sajak." Maggie graduated from Princeton University and finished a postgraduate program at Columbia University, but, according to her Instagram bio, she is still a student. Her bio says she is a law student without sharing where she attends school. When Maggie was in high school, she launched her country music career. At 16, she released her first single, "First Kiss." In 2013, she told Teen Vogue she learned to play the guitar when she was 13. "It's always been a dream of mine to be a singer," Maggie said at the time. "When I started playing guitar and performing more often, my passion for music became a top priority. With each new song I record and music video I release, I see my dreams becoming a reality." Maggie has a few other singles under her belt, including "Wild Boy," "Live Out Loud" and "If I Was Gonna Go." When Pat Sajak underwent surgery in 2020 for a blocked intestine, Maggie filled in as a "special letter toucher" while White took his place. During the episode taping, Maggie explained how her father was doing after the health scare. "From the perspective of his daughter, it was a scary experience, I’m not gonna lie," she said at the time. "But he’s doing great, and I know he’s so excited to be back next week." Maggie is very active on social media, and her Pomeranian, Jak, has his own Instagram account.
