Patton Oswalt and Meredith Salenger are engaged, Gossip Cop confirmed with the actor’s rep on Thursday. Amdist speculation, we’re told, “Yes, Patton is engaged to Meredith.”

Oswalt and Salenger went public with their romance last month. The couple stepped out together at the Los Angeles premiere of Baby Driver, holding hands on the red carpet. Since then, they’ve made many affectionate posts on social media.

In fact, the pair hinted at an engagement on Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday. Salenger posted a throwback photo, noting, “Once upon a time… in 2008… at my friend’s wedding… I caught the bouquet… #fairytalesdoexist.” Oswalt retweeted the post and added, “Ah, those bouquets. Years later they tend to attract rats…” The actor famously voiced the lovable rat Remy in the 2007 Pixar film, Ratatouille.

And there were other references earlier in the week, too. When Salenger jokingly tweeted that Oswalt was a “sh*thead,” he amusingly replied, “Aw, it’s like we’re already married!” In a related exchange, he cracked, “I expect to be treated with this level of deference in our marriage.” She obligingly replied, “As you wish. #bowsdown #kissesfeet #neveragain #YouWinOswalt.”

For her part, Salenger has also deemed Oswalt “the love of my life,” and she further showed her sense of humor on Thursday by posting on Instagram, “I don’t wanna brag… but check out the size of The Rock on my finger! Hahahah.” The picture, however, didn’t show an engagement ring, but an image of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson photoshopped onto her hand.

This will be Oswalt’s second marriage. As Gossip Cop reported, Oswalt’s wife Michelle McNamara died unexpectedly in April 2016. The star has been candid about his grief, unafraid to open up on social media about raising their daughter Alice on his own. Fortunately, he has found a new life partner in Salenger. Gossip Cop wishes the spouses-to-be many years of health and happiness. UPDATE: See Salenger’s actual engagement ring below!
