It's been a whirlwind romance for Oswalt and Salenger, who first went public with their relationship back in June at the "Baby Driver" premiere, and announced their engagement in July. Oswalt was previously married to true crime writer Michelle McNamara, who died unexpectedly in her sleep in April 2016 at the age of 46.
Oswalt has been incredibly open about his struggle with his grief over McNamara's passing, addressing his pain and the process of putting his life back together in his recent Netflix special, "Annihilation." He had previously credited their daughter, Alice, with helping him get through that difficult period.
We're so glad the comedian has been able to find happiness again. Congrats to the new family!
