A source close to the couple has revealed that the two are very much in love and that the wedding will be celebrated 'soon' in Hawaii where both women work and reside.
Lyssa seems to finally be on her way to stability and happiness, confided her friend, after a very complicated childhood and adolescence. During her early childhood, she had to deal with her mother Lyssa Rae Brittain's alcohol abuse, her father's drug addiction, and several incidents of sexual abuse.
Lyssa became a mother at just 15, and her daughter's father was subsequently imprisoned for sexual abuse of a minor.
Lyssa was married at 22, having wedded Brahman "Bo" Galanti in 2009. Sadly, Galanti was a violent and abusive spouse, and Lyssa divorced him in 2011. They had one child together, Madalynn Grace Galanti, now 8 years old. Lyssa's oldest daughter, Abbie Mae Chapman, is now 15.
Audiences knew Lyssa Rae Chapman as "Baby Lyssa" on A&E TV's reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter, in which she participated. As a bail bondswoman and bounty hunter, she helped her father Duane "Dog" Chapman to track down and capture wanted fugitives.
Lyssa is now a successful businesswoman and author, having published her biography Walking on Eggshells: Discovering Strength and Courage Amid Chaos in 2013.
