“Wheel of Fortune” is turning into an on-air family affair.

Maggie Sajak, daughter of the show’s legendary host Pat, will be turning the letters for Vanna White as she becomes a contestant on the May 10 episode of “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune”.

Maggie posted to her Instagram story on May 8, showing her strolling in front of the green video tiles on the “Wheel” set with the caption “Warming up for Wednesday”, according to TODAY.

The show posted an exclusive clip on its own Instagram, revealing White as a contestant.

“I’ve never seen your left side, it’s very nice,” Pat Sajak joked to White. “It’s as nice as your right side.”

The host then asked White if it was odd seeing someone else turning the tiles. She confirmed but said she knows Maggie would “do a great job”.

“They truly can’t stand each other,” Sajak deadpanned.

Other contestants include “Jeopardy!” hosts Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings.

According to the show’s website, Maggie Sajak has been coming to the show’s set since she was 1-year-old.
