Patton Oswalt Is Engaged to Meredith Salenger!

She was only 15 when she starred in the Depression-era adventure as a teenage tomboy who sets out across the country to reunite with her father (Ray Wise), accompanied by her loyal wolf and a teenage John Cusack (in one of his earliest roles, too). "I'm the luckiest girl in the universe!" Fans who've closely followed the comedian on social media over the last year-and-a-half know just how deeply the loss affected him in all areas of life, as well as what it's been like to suddenly find himself a single dad to his 8-year-old daughter, Alice. She finished up the tweet by saying that she loved Patton, and that she loved Alice.

Oswalt's representative has confirmed the news, which Salenger announced through a photo collage on Instagram. Fifteen months ago she tragically died in her sleep.

Patton Oswalt is tying the knot again.

"Don't wanna brag. but check out the size of The Rock on my finger! Hahahah (photoshop via @edwardderuiter)", with a photo of herself and Oswalt cuddling and an image of wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson standing on her hand.

The two have looked very happy together as they hit the premieres of Preached and Baby Driver in June. Like, huge, huge giant ' Star Wars' nerds. The actor seemingly wrote out "Will you marry me Meredith Salenger?" on six tiny pieces of paper.

The 46-year-old writer had apparently been taking Adderall, Xanax and Fentanyl when she passed, unaware she had a medical condition which caused blockages in her arteries.

Salenger broke out in movies as a teenager in "The Journey of Natty Gann" (1985) and "Dream a Little Dream" (1989).
