Lyssa Rae Chapman, the American bounty hunter, also known as Baby Lyssa, was born on June 10, 1987, in Denver, Colorado, U.S.

Early childhood:

Until the age of ten, Lyssa was raised by her father, Duane Chapman. Duane had twelve children, including Lyssa, through mixed marriages. Lyssa was the daughter of Duane Chapman's third wife, Lyssa Worthington Greene Brittain. When her parents' marriage fell apart, Lyssa moved in with her mother in a small Alaskan town after the age of ten. Six years later, she started working with her father at the family's bail bonds company, "Da Kine Bail Bonds."

A life in bounty hunting:

At the age of eighteen, Lyssa Chapman became a bounty hunter just like her father, the famous bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman. For eight years, she also took part in her father's TV show, "Dog the Bounty Hunter, " The show depicted the bounty hunters tracking down and apprehending wanted fugitives. By the time she turned nineteen, she had become a licensed bounty hunter in the state of Colorado. Lyssa has an estimated net worth of $500,000 which she earned by working in her father's TV show and being a famous bondsperson and bounty hunter.

Pregnancy, abuse and addiction, and family tragedy:

Lyssa Chapman survived a very tough, even horrifying childhood. Her father was a crack addict, and her mother had an alcohol addiction. At the age of fourteen, Lyssa was pregnant for the first time due to what she eventually revealed as sexual abuse. The twenty-four-year-old father of Chapman's daughter was arrested and went to prison for the crime of sexually abusing a minor since Lyssa was only fifteen years old when she delivered her first daughter, Abbie; it was illegal in their state to have sexual relations with a minor under the age of sixteen. Surprisingly, Lyssa didn't press any charges against the father of her daughter but expressed gratitude instead of having been given a daughter.

In 2006, Lyssa suffered a tragic loss when her sister Barbara was involved in a car accident and died from her injuries. Barbara's death affected Lyssa greatly.

Marriage and divorce:

At the age of twenty-three, Lyssa was pregnant for the second time and was dating the father of her second daughter, Brahman "Bo" Galanti. Some reported suspicions about the identity of her second daughter's father, even surmising that she was pregnant as a result of a love affair that Lyssa was involved in for one year. However, in February 2009, Lyssa and Galanti were married. They each had one daughter from previous relationships, and together they had their daughter Madalynn. Lyssa's marriage to Galanti seemed happy at first, but unfortunately for Lyssa, her happiness did not last long.
