As Wheel of Fortune was wrapping up, proud father Pat Sajak told his co-host Vanna White: "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 are very thrilled about that," Sajak announced.

He added, "The only troubling part is that he insists that I call him Dr. Sajak," which the audience enjoyed.
