During Wednesday night's episode, a new wave of "Wheel of Fortune" youngsters briefly stepped into the spotlight, temporarily taking over the beloved game show.
On the official "Wheel of Fortune" social media page, Maggie Sajak, daughter of Pat Sajak, conducted an interview segment titled "The Spin with Maggie Sajak" featuring Nikko, son of Vanna White.
In this heartwarming encounter, the two shared nostalgic anecdotes about their shared experience of growing up as the children of the iconic "Wheel of Fortune" hosts while constantly being in the public eye.
"We have known each other my whole life," Maggie began.
"It’s been a long time," Nikko replied.
As Maggie reminisced about their time together, she fondly recalled some humorous moments shared between them. One particularly memorable instance involved Nikko, and Maggie amusingly confessed that her mother unearthed a video capturing that hilarious moment.
Within the video, Maggie's mother playfully prompts Nikko to bestow a kiss on her daughter's cheek. However, much to everyone's amusement, she playfully surprises him by lightly tapping his face instead.
"I would like to apologize," Maggie laughed.
"That’s the reason why I never tried to kiss you on the cheek again," Nikko said to her.
"Gosh, we really dodged a bullet there," she wisecracked.

This interaction took place following Maggie's appearance as a substitute for White on an episode of "Celebrity Wheel of Fortune."
"Got to see mom [play] against some of the smartest people in the world, which was really interesting," he said.
"She put in the fight … she did a great job," Nikko said.
Additionally, he extended his congratulations to Maggie, praising her for doing an "amazing" job while standing in for his mother.
"She taught me well," Maggie said.
Later in the video, White joined Maggie and Nikko, playfully suggesting that her son should give Sajak's daughter a friendly peck on the cheek.
Following Nikko's affectionate gesture of planting a peck on Maggie's cheek, White responded with a lighthearted remark, exclaiming, "We've come full circle now!"
"All my PTSD is over with … the whole slapping on the face, I feel a lot better now," Nikko joked.
Fans of "Wheel of Fortune" delighted in witnessing the warm and friendly interaction between Maggie and Nikko, with one comment expressing, "They would make such a stunning couple!"
