Vanna White Says 'Wheel of Fortune' Fans Helped Her Cope with Fiance's Tragic Death

Vanna White is opening up about some of the most tragic losses in her life.

During a recent interview, the 62-year-old Wheel of Fortune star – who has been on the show since 1982 – recalled the tragic death of then-fiancé, the Young and the Restless actor John Gibson, who was killed when the plane he was flying crashed outside of Van Nuys Airport near Los Angeles.

“It was May 17, 1986,” Vanna recalled with People. “The second I heard about it, I fell to my knees. It was just devastating.”

She then went on to say that Wheel of Fortune fans helped her cope with her devastating loss.

“I heard from so many people who had shared the same experience of losing someone instantly in an accident, and that really helped me,” Vanna continued. “I didn’t feel like I was alone. Because when something like that happens, you immediately think you’re the only one.”

Vanna then married restaurateur George Santo Pietro in 1990, but tragedy struck again in 1992 when she found out she suffered a miscarriage – just a week after announcing her pregnancy on Wheel of Fortune.

“Obviously I lost the baby, which was devastating after announcing it. The good news is I was able to get pregnant again and had two beautiful, healthy children,” Vanna shared. “But losing a child — there’s nothing good about that.”

Vanna then went on to say that thanks to the support of friends, family, and fans, she was able to recover from the loss.

“You have to take their support and try to be strong. It’s so hard, but you just have to think, ‘What would they want me to do?’” Vanna said. “I’m a Christian and have always had my own personal relationship with God,” she says. “I don’t preach about it, because everyone’s entitled to their own beliefs. But I pray. I pray every day.”
