Lyssa Rae Chapman II, more commonly known as "Baby Lyssa" (born June 10, 1987) is an American bail bondswoman and bounty hunter, most noted for her role on A&E TV's Dog the Bounty Hunter, in which she, along with her father Duane "Dog" Chapman and various friends and family track down and capture wanted fugitives.

Personal life and career

Lyssa Rae Chapman was born the tenth child of Duane "Dog" Chapman and his third wife, Lyssa Rae Brittain (née Greene). Lyssa was raised by her father until she was eleven, after that she went to live with her mother in a small Alaskan town, and had no contact with her father for six years. Lyssa works for her father, Duane "Dog" Chapman, at their family's bail bonds company, Da Kine Bail Bonds.

Lyssa's first daughter, Abbie Mae Chapman (born June 11, 2002) was born the day after Lyssa's fifteenth birthday. It was revealed in an interview during Lyssa's second pregnancy, that Abbie's father had been twenty-four at the time of conception. He was subsequently arrested and went to jail for sexually abusing a minor.

On February 20, 2009, Lyssa married Brahman "Bo" Galanti (born July 24, 1973) at Lanikuhonua at Ko Olina in Oahu, Hawaii.[1] Along with Lyssa's daughter Abbie and Bo's daughter Serena, the couple have one child together, Madalynn Grace Chapman-Galanti (born August 7, 2009). In February 2011, Lyssa filed for divorce from Galanti.[2] On March 15, 2011, Lyssa was arrested for criminal property damage and assaulting a police officer.[3]

In 2012 it was announced that the autobiography Walking on Eggshells: The Lyssa Chapman Story had been sold by Martin Literary Management to Howard Books, a division of Simon & Schuster. Award-winning author Lisa Wysocky will co-author the book with Lyssa Chapman.
