Early life and education

Nikko grew up being interested in various activities, but was mostly into playing sports while attending a local high school, on his school’s soccer team, and also playing basketball and baseball. He was around 16 years old when he became interested in cooking, and it was his mother who taught him the basics.
Nikko matriculated in 2012, and although he hasn’t spoken of his further education, it’s believed that he attended college, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2016.
Nikko has been working as a chef for a couple of years now, although it remains undisclosed at which restaurant he’s currently employed.

Who is his mother Vanna?
Vanna Marie Rosich was born in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina USA, on 18 February 1957 – her zodiac sign is Aquarius, and she holds American nationality. She’s known best for being the hostess of the family game-show “Wheel of Fortune”, created by Merv Griffin, and which is also co-hosted by Pat Sajak. Each episode features three people trying to guess the letters required to complete a word or a phrase, and the game-show has won nine of the 89 awards for which it’s been nominated, including a Primetime Emmy nomination.
Vanna was raised in North Myrtle Beach solely by her mother Joan Marie (nee Nicholas), who divorced Vanna’s father Miguel Angel Rosich not long after she was born; Joan married real estate broker Herbert White Jr. a couple of years later, and he legally adopted Vanna. She attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 1975 moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she studied at The Atlanta School of Fashion and Design. Vanna worked as a model during these years, then upon graduating in 1979 moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of an acting career.
She made her debut film appearance in the 1981 horror “Midnight Offerings”, and her debut TV series appearance in the 1982 episode “The Boy Next Door” of the comedy “Star of the Family”; the remainder of the ’80s saw her make a guest appearance in an episode of various popular series, such as the comedy “Gimme a Break!”, the action crime adventure “The A-Team” and the comedy “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show”.
In 1994, Vanna played a supporting character in the critically acclaimed crime comedy movie “Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult”, directed by Peter Segal, and which starred Leslie Nielsen, Priscilla Presley and George Kennedy. It follows police officer Frank Drebin who has come out of retirement to help his former police squad, and the movie won three awards.
Vanna has since been focused on working as a game-show host, and has appeared in only a couple of TV series – her two most recent roles have been in the 2001 episode “Inner Tube” of the comedy “The King of Queens”, and the 2017 episode “B as in Best Friends” of the comedy “Fresh Off the Boat”.
Some of Vanna’s other works include her autobiography “Vanna Speaks!”, published in 1987, her posing for a “Playboy” pictorial in 1987, and her voicing of a supporting character in the Canadian animated TV special “The Real Story of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”.
She’s a philanthropist, and has donated money to various charity organizations; her highest donation was $1.8 million to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Vanna was honored with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on 20 April 2006.
