The next generation of “Wheel of Fortune” kids momentarily took over for the beloved game show Wednesday night.

On the “Wheel of Fortune” social media page, Pat Sajak’s daughter Maggie interviewed Vanna White’s son Nikko in a segment titled, “The Spin with Maggie Sajak.”

The two reminisced on old memories of growing up together while being in the spotlight as the “Wheel of Fortune” hosts’ children.

“We have known each other my whole life,” Maggie began.

“It’s been a long time,” Nikko responded. 

Maggie reflected on funny moments the two had together, as she admitted her mother “dug” a memorable video of Nikko.

 

In the video, Maggie’s mom encourages Nikko to give her daughter a kiss on the cheek, but then she hits him in the face.

“I would like to apologize,” Maggie laughed. 

“That’s the reason why I never tried to kiss you on the cheek again,” Nikko told her.

“Gosh, we really dodged a bullet there,” she joked.
