The star of Netflix's Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping has talked candidly about his wife's unexpected death and the overwhelming grief he has dealt with since her passing.

Oswalt's wife Michelle McNamara, a writer and founder of the True Crime Diary website, died suddenly in her sleep in April 2016 after taking prescription medications while having an undiagnosed heart condition.

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. That's right; after just a few months of dating, People magazine is reporting that Oswalt and Salenger are engaged!
