Vanna White Dishes On Her Boyfriend Of 8 Years, Saying She Feels Like She's Already Married: "It Seems To Be Working"

December 17, 2019

Wheel of Fortune star, Vanna White, continues striking — she has recently hosted the show solo for the very first time in 37 years!

After Pat Sajak had to undergo emergency surgery last month, longtime letter-turner Vanna stepped in as the main host. White shared a snap from Monday’s episode before the show aired, and captioned it with sweet words:

Tonight’s my first night of hosting Wheel! I’m excited and nervous!

Wheel of Fortune host’s love life is also glorious. In an interview with Closer Weekly, Vanna White opened up about her relationship with her boyfriend, John Donaldson. The game show icon has been dating her partner for eight years, and it seems like everything has been excellent with the couple. White said:

We’ve been together for eight years, and it seems to be working, so we’re both happy, so in my eyes, I feel — in both of our eyes — we feel married. So I don’t think you necessarily have to have a piece of paper unless you want to. Everybody’s different, so for each his own.

Vanna White considers John Donaldson her husband, as he has been everything to her and a doting stepfather to her two children, 25-year-old Nikko and 22-year-old Gigi. All of them are going for a Christmas vacation somewhere “tropical” this year.

We’re going to go away on vacation with my children — my children and my boyfriend and I. We always spend obviously our holidays together so looking forward to that.

The South Carolina beauty’s boyfriend is a building developer. In 2015, Vanna revealed to Closer Weekly what she liked the most about Donaldson.

He is kind, understanding and lets me be me.

Love is beautiful when two partners respect and care for each other. We are so happy for Vanna White and John Donaldson, and still hope they’ll make up their minds about marriage!
