Here come the brides! Dog the Bounty Hunter's daughter Lyssa Chapman is reportedly planning to marry her girlfriend of one year Leiana Evensen. Lyssa, who is the ninth of Duan and Beth Chapman's 12 kids — has not stopped gushing about her love on Instagram since announcing their engagement to friends and family in December.
"Lyssa is head over heels in love with Leiana Evensen, who works at The Oahu Club in Honolulu," a source told Radar Online, before adding the wedding will take place very soon. The 30-year-old reality star, who is also known as Baby Lyssa and worked alongside her dad as a bail bondswoman, is now the owner of a tanning salon in Hawaii. She also has two kids from her previous marriage to Brahman "Bo" Galanti.
Lyssa opened up about Leiana's sweet proposal on Instagram last year. "On our Seattle trip this beauty beat me to the punch and asked me to marry her," she captioned a selfie of the couple. "I’m still in shock wondering how I caught the heart of such an amazing soul. Forever won’t be long enough baby."
Fans of the A&E series know Lyssa's life has not been the easiest. She welcomed her first daughter at just 15 years old, and she falsely accused her father of rape in a 2011 Fox News interview. "It was a horrible life that I never wanted to go back to, living with him and Beth and the fighting and the drugs. When I got to my mother’s, although she drank, it was much more peaceful," she said. "I was in school, I had friends, I was willing to do anything to not go back."
However, it looks like Beth and Lyssa have reconciled after posting a selfie together on Facebook last year. In her memoir, Walking on Eggshells, Lyssa also called her relationship with her mom and dad "healthy" today.
Congrats to the happy couple! Let's hope Dog gets to walk his daughter down the aisle!
