Actor/comedian Patton Oswalt and actress Meredith Salanger (remember "The Journey of Natty Gann"?) are engaged, 15 months after the sudden death of his wife, Michelle McNamara.

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".

Patton Oswalt andMeredith Salenger have announced their engagement, can report!

Oswalt, who re-tweeted the message, was previously married to writer Michelle McNamara from 2005 until her death in April 2016.

The Young Adult star and Salenger went public with their relationship last month, when they hit the red carpet for the Baby Driver premiere hand in hand. "Swoon", she captioned an Instagram pic of the couple from the event.

Naturally, their social media posts have only become more adorable since they got engaged, so there's no telling just how much cuter this whole thing will get before the actual wedding happens.

She also hinted at the engagement in an earlier post, which featured a picture of her catching the bouquet at a friend's wedding.

We hope Patton's eight-year-old daughter, Alice Rigney, is just as excited as the couple. I caught the bouquet. "She's still so tied into our worlds, in a way that's encouraging and energizing", he wrote on April 21, almost one year after her passing. She died in her sleep and was found dead by Oswalt.

Born in Malibu, she has appeared in a number of films, including Lake Placid, The Kiss and Dream a Little Dream. He said that he and McNamara had not been aware that there was something wrong with her heart.
