Lyssa Chapman has been residing in Hawaii with the rest of their family, and consequently celebrates 'Lei Day', a cultural day in Hawaii. This year, Duane Chapman's daughter paid tribute to 'Lei Day' by sharing an appreciation post for her own 'Lei' - her girlfriend Leiana.


Every 1st of May, Hawaii celebrates its long-standing tradition called 'Lei Day'. During May Day, the entire state of Hawaii celebrates its Hawaiian culture by donning lei of different kinds. 

In celebration of the aloha spirit that the citizens of Hawaii have, people often give each other gifts of leis to signify the strong bond that their community has. 

However, Lyssa Chapman decided that Lei Day did not mean she had to give her loved ones their own leis, but chose to show appreciation to her special someone instead. 


"May Day is Lei day in Hawaii. so grateful for my Lei. You have opened my eyes to all the beauty, fun and love in the world. You will always be the light in my eyes and the love of my life.  #MayDay #Leiday #ereday#MyPerfectLei"

Ironically, her special someone shares the same name as the special floral necklace that the Hawaiians celebrate with: Lei. 

Leiana Evansen and Lyssa Chapman are happily in-love with one another, and have been engaged since December last year. 


The two have yet to finalize their marriage, still enjoying life as an unmarried couple at the moment.

Leiana and Lyssa have been spotted exploring different sites in their hometown Hawaii, visiting different beaches, parks, trails, and even resorts. 


"It’s been a year full of giving and receiving LOVE. Thank you all for the memories and blessings.#ValentinesDay2018"

While Lyssa has moved from state to state due to the separation of her parents Duane Chapman and Lyssa Rae Brittain, her girlfriend Leiana was born and raised in Hawaii. 

Evanson graduated from a private school in Hawaii last 2005, and has since been working as a fitness instructor at a local Honolulu gym.

Their engagement marks the first for Leiana, and the second for Lyssa who was married to Brahman Galanti in 2009. Galanti and Chapman filed for divorce in 2011, but share one child together, in addition to her first child Abbie whom she gave birth to when she was only fifteen years old.
