Sara Bareilles and Joe Tippett are engaged after more than five years together.

Bareilles announced the news on Instagram, sharing a selfie that showed off her stone-less ring.
Sara Bareilles is engaged to her longtime partner, Joe Tippett.
The “Brave” singer, 43, shared the news on Instagram Sunday. In the post, she and Tippett, 40, gaze into each other’s eyes.
Bareilles rests her hand on her face in the shot, showing off a delicate gold ring that has no stone.
“Yes to marrying this man,” Bareilles captioned the post. “It’s an easy, earned, relaxed YES.”
“@joetipps you are exactly who I want,” she went on in the caption. “The more I know you the more I know I love you…and you have introduced me to parts of myself I was afraid to love.”
“And now I love ME more because of you. So really this is all about me,” she joked. “Just kidding. What a gift you are. Let the games begin. Onward into absolutely everything with you.”
Bareilles also posted the same photo on her Instagram story, writing, “New Year’s resolution: marry this man.”
The musical adaptation of Adrienne Shelly’s “Waitress” brought Tippett and Bareilles together in 2015, as People reported. Bareilles starred in the show as Jenna Hunterson and wrote the score for the musical, which snagged her a Tony nomination in 2016.
Tippett played Earl, Jenna’s abusive husband, when the show was in previews at Cambridge, Massachusetts’ American Repertory Theater. He reprised the role in the Broadway production of “Waitress” in 2017, though not at the same time Bareilles played Jenna, according to Playbill.
Bareilles and Tippett began appearing at events together in 2017, and she celebrated their third anniversary with an Instagram post in September 2019, captioning a selfie, “3 years. Feels like 3 hundred. Can’t wait for it to be forever.”
Bareilles also told People in July 2020 that her relationship with Tippett assuaged her fears that a partner would impede her songwriting abilities.
“I had a fear that if I was happy and content in a relationship that I would stop writing music,” she told the outlet. “But now I am seeking and wandering in partnership.”
