Patton Oswalt says he and his new wife, Meredith Salenger, along with his 8-year-old daughter, Alice, make one happy family!

ET's Leanne Aguilera chatted with the A.P. Bio star at the Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena, California, on Tuesday, and he cheerfully opened up about his home life since marrying Salenger in November. 

"I've lucked way above my pay grade," he said, gushing over his wife. 

As for Alice, Oswalt says his daughter and the 47-year-old actress are getting along splendidly. "Oh my god, my daughter is so happy. Meredith is the best. Meredith Salinger is Mary Poppins," the 48-year-old comedian raved.

In April 2016, Oswalt's first wife and Alice's mother, Michelle E. McNamara, died suddenly and unexpectedly in her sleep due to a combination of prescription drugs and an undiagnosed heart condition.

On New Year's Day, Oswalt praised Salenger for helping him through the dark times. "This gorgeous book of wonder and fun, with eyes that can barely contain the exploding sun of her spirit, balanced out everything awful about 2017," he captioned a photo of his wife on Instagram. "Let’s tip the scales further toward life in 2018, shall we?"
