Bareilles’ and Tippett’s love story begins in 2015, when they met at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts while working together in the early days of Waitress. Tippett was cast as the main man, Earl Hunterson.

Eventually, in 2021, Bareilles had a run as the show’s leading lady, Jenna Hunterson, and Tippett revived his role of Earl, playing her on-stage husband. They also played the Huntersons in the 2023 movie musical.

Bareilles and Tippett got engaged in 2023.

Bareilles announced her engagement to Tippett on New Year’s Day. She posted a selfie to her Instagram of them smiling and gazing into each other’s eyes. Bareilles rested her chin in her left land, putting her unique gold feather ring on display.

“Yes to marrying this man,” she wrote in the caption. “It’s an easy, earned, relaxed YES. @joetipps you are exactly who I want. 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. Just kidding. What a gift you are. Let the games begin. Onward into absolutely everything with you. ❤️.”

Tippett also made his own post, sharing a picture of Bareilles and writing, “I’m going to marry this woman. Looking ahead to all of the tomorrows, all the adventures, the laughs, and all of the love. Thank you my heart.”

“We had been talking about it for quite some time, so it wasn’t a surprise or anything. But we were in Mexico City, and she was having a bad day,” Tippett told People of the engagement. “We kind of connected and got things back on track. We had been looking for the perfect ring and couldn’t find it. And I was like, ‘I just want to do it!’ So we found this cheap little ring in a market that we both love, and we were like, ‘That’s the thing for now!’”

“We were up on a roof at sunset, the sky was on fire and we were listening to music and slow dancing, and it was like, ‘OK, now!’ I asked and she said yes and I was like, ‘Well fuck, I forgot the ring, I have to go down and get it!’ So then I came back up, got down on one knee, we did the deal and it was great,” he added.

“I love it. It’s just—it’s sweet,” Bareilles chimed in.

Tippett and Bareilles have a dog.

In early 2022, Bareilles shared the news of their four-legged-friend, Louie, with her Instagram followers. He makes frequent appearances on both of their social media accounts.
