I couldn't see her expression. And you too, Meredith Salenger.

Last month, Salenger posted a sweet picture of her and Alice in the pool with the caption, "Happiest me!" and just one day later, shared a photo of the pair hugging with the caption, "This muppet has my heart". The caption reads, "I don't wanna brag... but check out the size of The Rock on my finger!" She finished up the tweet by saying that she loved Patton, and that she loved Alice.

Patton Wednesday his late wife in 2005 and they welcomed Alice in 2009.

Oswalt's wife, Michelle McNamara, died suddenly in her sleep on April 21, 2016, at age 46. "We learned today the combination of drugs in Michelle's system, along with a condition we were unaware of, proved lethal", Oswalt said in February 2017.

"I am acutely aware that there are retired judges and attorneys with years of legal experience acting as mediators who simply can not bring two parties in conflict to a place of mutual agreement the way I have", Salenger's resume objective reads.

According to her LinkedIn page, Salenger has also been a mediator for the California Lawyers for the Arts since 2011.

Now 47, the Harvard-educated actress has amassed an impressive list of film and television credits, including roles in Village of the Damned, Lake Placid, Hollywood Heights, and The Kiss.

In addition to her other acting work, Salenger has lent her voice to multiple episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, most frequently playing the Jedi Padawan Barriss Offee.

While the sitcom star was open about his grief after the horrifying incident, his unlikely relationship with Salenger pulled him out of depression and into her arms.

Also joining in on the congratulations was Star Wars legend Mark Hamill.
