This news comes a year after Oswalt's then-wife, Michelle McNamara, passed away suddenly in her sleep, leaving behind the couple's eight-year-old daughter, Alice. I'm the luckiest happiest girl in the universe!

And, ever the funnyman, Oswalt joked of the proposal on Twitter: "I put the ring in a marzipan Slave I replica and said, 'Will you be my Padawan of Love?' She maced me but said yes later". She said yes, of course, and we are literally the HAPPIEST for them right now.

Patton Oswalt is engaged, some 15 months after the tragic death of his wife.

Posting to Instagram, Salenger shared a first look at her new piece of jewelry, and it is a sight to behold. "I caught the bouquet #fairytalesdoexist".


The couple has been sending signals about their intentions in the last week, with Oswalt quipping over the weekend, "Aw, it's like we're already married!" after Salenger razzed him on Twitter.

The King of Queens alum and the 47-year-old only went public with their relationship last month when they hit the red carpet at the El Lay premiere for Baby Driver. She captioned the post, "It's official". That when the universe throws you a curveball amidst your grief and delivers you a ideal second chance at love, my god, you TAKE IT.

The cause of her death was later attributed to an undiagnosed heart condition, along with a combination of drugs including Xanax, the pain medication Fentanyl, and the attention deficit disorder drug Adderall, Variety reported.

Salenger is known for roles in Disney's 1985 film "The Journey of Natty Gann" and the 1995 remake of "Village of the Damned".
