Patton Oswalt and Meredith Salenger have announced they’re engaged.

Salenger, an actress who’s lent her voice to Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, posted about the engagement on Thursday. The couple appeared together at the premiere of Baby Driver in June.

Oswalt, a noted Star Wars fan, elaborated on how he asked.

Carvel tried to get in on it, too, a nod to Oswalt’s longstanding obsession.

Oswalt was married to and has a daughter with writer and author Michelle McNamara, who unexpectedly passed away in April 2016. He wrote a touching remembrance of her on the anniversary of her death.

In the last month, however, Salenger and Oswalt became more public with their relationship.
