Vanna White with her father, who is not Darth Vader

Vanna White (left) poses with her father, Herbert White, on the day she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That day was April 20, 2006. Vanna White was the longtime hostess of the TV game show Wheel of Fortune. Just as an aside, her father looks remarkably like David Prowse, the actor who played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars movies. But he is not Darth Vader.

To clarify things even further, Herbert White is actually Vanna White's *stepfather.* She is the biological daughter of a Puerto Rican man named Miguel Angel Rosich, who was divorced from Vanna's mother Jane when Vanna was young. She was raised by her mother and Herbert White, and eventually took White's last name.
