And Salenger hinted at their engagement on Instagram Wednesday, writing, "Once upon a time... in 2008... at my friend's wedding..." On the first anniversary of McNamara's death, Oswalt recalled the day she died and shared that he had finally removed his wedding band.

According to People, Oswalt and Salenger met through their mutual friend, actress Martha Plimpton.

"They are over the moon happy and are excited to start their lives together", a source tells Us of the happy couple. Fifteen months ago she tragically died in her sleep. She has also been known for roles in films such as "Lake Placid" and "Hollywood Heights". "Everything you do and say is a memory of her'".
