The How I Met Your Mother spinoff to be told from the mother's point-of-view has picked a narrator in rom-com veteran Meg Ryan of When Harry Met Sally fame. Her role will mirror that of Bob Saget from the original CBS series, and yes, she will actually be named Sally

Meg Ryan will narrate the mom on the How I Met Your Mother spinoff How I Met Your Dad.

Meg Ryan’s role will mirror that of Bob Saget from the original CBS series, Deadline reports. Saget was the voice of future Ted (present Ted was played by Josh Radnor) on HIMYM. Meg Ryan will do the same for future Sally. Present Sally will be played by Greta Gerwig.

Don’t expect Ryan to be making any “I’ll have what she’s having” cameos on the show. Saget never actually appeared on HIMYM, and future Ted, when we finally saw him, was played by Radnor. The same will likely be true for Sally in the spinoff.
