How did they meet?
Brown and Sajak became acquainted at the inauguration of a sports bar in California in 1988. The bar was owned by a mutual friend. They had a huge age gap of 19 years. ” There was no electricity in the air” during the meeting, said Sajak. They talked on the phone for the next few months, but these conversations were plain and no romance was involved. Things started to change by the spring of 1989. Both of them started feeling that there was something more going on between them. But both of them couldn’t gather the courage to express their feelings to one another.
However, Shajak was already married to another woman named Sherrill Sajak from 1979 to 1986. If she had not been featured in another syndicated show called “The Dating Game” and went on a date to Mexico with the winning bachelor their relationship would have stayed in limbo forever. He was a little annoyed by this trip and referred to as “borderline jealous”.
After she came back from her trip, he immediately took a flight to meet her. He had realized that she was the woman with whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life.
Proposal and Marriage
Sajak proposed to Brown with a ring with a three-carat-plus marquise-shaped diamond on the US Labor Day. They got married in a very traditional ceremony in a 19th-century Catholic church on New Year’s Eve in 1989, in Annapolis, Maryland.
His long-time friend Dan Miller, who was a sidekick on the short-lived CBS talk show, served as his best man. The game show’s co-host also attended their wedding along with the other 150 guests.
For how long have they been together?
Since they tied the knot in 1989 at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church they have been together for over three decades. They held their wedding reception under a white tent behind Brown’s parents’ two-story home outside Annapolis.
Before Brown, Pat Sajak was married to Sherrill James Sajak, who he met in 1978 and wed in 1979. The couple got separated in 1986.
What about their children?
They have a family of four consisting of Sajak, his wife, and two children. Their eldest son, Patrick Michael James Sajak, was born on 22nd September 1990. Patrick graduated from medical school and congratulated him in an episode of Wheel of Fortune.
He congratulated him by saying, “You know my son Patrick, you’ve known him all his life… He’s made it through medical school and he is now officially Dr. Sajak. The only troubling part is that he insists that I call him Dr. Sajak. I tried to get him into geriatrics but he refused, but that’s a personal thing. Anyway, congratulations son.”
They also had a daughter named Maggie Marie Sajak, who was born on 5th January 1995. She graduated from Princeton University with a degree in history in 2016. And, she is also a country singer who has released hits like Wild Boy.

Where are they currently living?
They have a mansion in Severna Park, Maryland, where they live. They also have a second home in Los Angeles, California. But mostly they spend their time in the mansion.
Sajak got hospitalized
Sajak was hospitalized in late 2019 for a blocked intestine. His blood pressure had severely declined and he felt “horrific pain” in his stomach. His wife and children were beside him, even though he didn’t realize it as he was high on medication.
He told in an interview that, “In the background [at the hospital], I could hear my wife and daughter talking,” he recalled to Good Morning America in December 2019. “It sounded like they were a mile off, but they were right next to me! They were talking to each other. And I remember thinking, not in a morbid way, ‘I think this must be death. This must be what death is like.’”
“Hearing their voices, I thought, ‘Boy, their lives are gonna change now.’ And I felt bad for them,” he continued. “I didn’t feel bad about dying. I felt bad that they were gonna have to deal with the aftermath. As it turned out, I was just high.”
Luckily the surgery turned out to be a success. The doctors were unsure about his condition, but he has fully recovered and is living a happy life.
