Who is Patrick Michael James Sajak?
Patrick Michael James Sajak was born in the USA, on 22 September 1990 – his zodiac sign is Virgo and he holds American nationality. He is only known for being the son of Pat Sajak, a famous American TV personality, and a game show host.
Childhood and education
Patrick was raised in the USA alongside his younger sister Maggie Sajak (born on 5 January 1995) by their father and their mother Lesly Brown Sajak, who was a photographer – Maggie is today a country music singer, known best for her music videos “First Kiss” and “Wild Boy”, released in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
Even though his father is a very famous person in the US, Patrick still managed to stay away from the media’s attention while growing-up, and his parents had nothing against his wish to lead a private life – the same goes for his sister Lesly as not much is known about her personal life either. Patrick attended a local high school at which he played baseball, and while it isn’t known whether or not he attended college, it is believed by many that he matriculated in 1998, and obtained his Bachelor’s degree in 2012.
Patrick has been staying away from the media’s attention for more than a decade now, so nothing is known about his career.
Love life and marriage
He is quite secretive when it comes to his love life too, and hasn’t talked about any girls he might have dated, and this has caused many rumors about his past and present relationships to start spreading around the internet.
Some believe that Patrick is a married man who exchanged vows with his other half in the mid-2010s, while others claim that he is gay which is why he has been staying away from the spotlight and hasn’t talked about his relationships.
As none of these rumors have been confirmed, so Patrick is single as of November 2020, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
