Lyssa Rae Chapman (born June 10, 1987), more commonly known as "Baby Lyssa", 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[edit]

Lyssa Rae Chapman was born the ninth of eleven children of Duane "Dog" Chapman. Her mother is his third wife, Lyssa Rae Brittain (née Greene). She was raised by her father until she was 10, after which she went to live with her mother in a small Alaskan town, and had no contact with her father for six years. She later worked with "Dog" at the family bail bonds company, Da Kine Bail Bonds. She no longer works with her family and will not be on their new show.[1]

Lyssa's first daughter was born the day after Lyssa's fifteenth birthday. It was revealed in an interview during Lyssa's second pregnancy, that Abbie's father was 24 years old at the time of conception. He was subsequently arrested and went to jail for sexually abusing a minor.[citation needed]

On February 20, 2009, Lyssa married Brahman "Bo" Galanti (born July 24, 1973) in Oahu, Hawaii. The couple have one child together, in addition to their children by other relationships. 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]

Howard Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, released Chapman's autobiography, Walking on Eggshells: Discovering Strength and Courage Amid Chaos, on May 7, 2013. The book was co-authored by Lisa Wysocky.[citation needed]
