Duane “Dog” Chapman’s daughter, “Baby Lyssa” Chapman beamed with pride as she shared rare pictures of her daughter Abbie Mae, set to graduate from high school in a month.


“Baby Lyssa” posted the first photo of the two of them arm-in-arm on April 26 as they smiled and gave peace signs to the camera. In the caption, she gushed, "This girl is graduating in one month. I have no words for how proud I am. Look out world; my baby is coming to shake things up."


A few days later, the proud 31-year-old mother posted another update that featured a slideshow of Abbie Mae dressed up in a red dress for senior prom with a short caption that read, “Senior Prom! #SoManyFeels.”

Abbie Mae is “Baby Lyssa” Chapman’s firstborn and they almost share a birthday as Abbie arrived a day after “Baby Lyssa’s” fifteenth birthday.


However, Abbie’s father, who was 24 years old at the time of her birth, wasn’t in the picture as she grew up as he got arrested for statutory rape.

Years later, Abbie gained a sister when her mother, “Baby Lyssa’ married Brahman “Bo” Galanti in Hawaii on February 20, 2009, but the marriage only lasted two years during which they had a daughter together named Madalynn now nine years old.


According to Duane “Dog” Chapman’s current and fourth wife, Beth Chapman, Brahman became physically abusive towards “Baby Lyssa” as she told MailOnline at the time, "She's in an abusive relationship, and he's got to go."

Lyssa Rae Chapman, got the nickname “Baby Lyssa” to distinguish between her and her mother after whom she got named, Lyssa Rae Brittain.

“Baby Lyssa’s” mother was Duane “Dog” Chapman’s third wife, with “Baby Lyssa” being the ninth of his twelve children in total.


As former bail bondswoman, “Baby Lyssa” appeared alongside her father Duane “Dog” Chapman and various family members and friends in the A&E television series, “Dog the Bounty Hunter” where they tracked down and captured wanted fugitives.

Now a businesswoman, she had given up the bounty hunting days and no longer works with the family.


She has however found love again and got engaged to her soulmate Leiana last year, while her daughter, Abbie Mae’s senior prom most likely reminded “Baby Lyssa” of her daughter’s junior prom last year.

In stark contrast, Abbie looked like a young fairy princess in a pale pink dress for her junior prom while her dress this year nudges towards a bold young woman blossoming into adulthood.
