Love-bitten Vanna White has found the one — and she’s set to tie the knot!

After a heartbreaking divorce, broken engagement and several failed romances, the “Wheel of Fortune” letter turner will wed her beau of six years, John Donaldson!

But has learned the 61-year-old TV queen is so loved-up that she hasn’t asked the former construction worker to sign a prenup!

“Vanna doesn’t want to treat marriage like a business deal, fearing that will only jinx it,” spilled an insider.

“She isn’t bothered by the fact that she has $30 million and John has significantly less.

“This is love and she’s sure it’s going to last. In fact, she tells friends that she already feels married to John!

“Vanna knew when they met that they had something special. She just feels so relaxed around John. He dotes on her and takes her celebrity in stride. Her kids love him, too.”

The bubbly blonde had dated the building developer for three years before she even decided to go public with their romance at a star-studded event in Beverly Hills in 2015.

“Yes, I do have a boyfriend. He’s awesome,” Vanna gushed at the time. “He’s tall, dark and handsome — absolutely!”

The two plan to say “I do” in a small, intimate ceremony in front of close friends and family, dished the source, adding: “Vanna mentioned she’d like to swap vows around the holidays, her favorite time of year.”

Until John, her love life was s-a-d. As a budding model in Atlanta in the 1970s, Vanna fell for businessman Gordy Watson and was shattered when she learned he was cheating on her.

After moving to Los Angeles, she was reportedly involved in an abusive relationship with Casey Ortez, who took his own life in 1982.

She found happiness with soap opera actor John Gibson — and was devastated when he died in a plane crash.

Her marriage to business mogul George Santo Pietro ended in 2002 after 12 years and two children, Niko, 24, and Gigi, 21.

Vanna was engaged to investment banker Michael Kaye in 2004, but she called it off before setting a wedding date.

“She has had a lot of disappointments, but John’s not one of them!” added the insider.
