Per People, A source close to the couple says that they met via a mutual friend Martha Plimpton. “They started chatting as friends and it blossomed from there,” the source said.
Oswalt asked the big question in July 2017 and Meredith, of course, said yes. Each of them took part in social media to tell the fans the news.
Oswalt also confirmed the engagement with a Star Wars joke. He wrote on Twitter;
‘I put the ring in a marzipan Slave I replica and said, “Will you be my Padawan of Love?” She maced me but said yes later.’ The words “Slave I” and “Padawan” are Star Wars references. Coincidentally, Oswalt like Meredith is a huge fan of the Star Wars franchise.
