Dog The Bounty Hunter’s daughter Lyssa married Leiana Evensen

Dog The Bounty Hunter’s daughter Lyssa Chapman has tied the knot with her girlfriend Leiana Evensen in Hawaii, but her dad wasn’t present at the ceremony.

Lyssa, who has been dating Leiana since 2016, had an intimate beachfront ceremony but admitted her dad wasn’t in attendance.

However, she did say Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, was still very much part of her big day.

Speaking to People, she said: “He was of course on the phone with me all morning and during. We FaceTimed him a bunch. He was there in spirit and also electronically.”

She explained that her dad had found it “really, really hard” to return to Hawaii following the death of his fourth wife Beth Chapman.

Dog and Beth rose to fame on the popular reality TV series which watched them try to catch fugitives together with their family.

They enjoyed a happy marriage together for over a decade before she died in 2019 from cancer at the age of 51.

Lyssa took to Instagram to share news of her wedding with her 301k followers. She posted a number of pics alongside the caption: “Last week Lei and I boarded a boat at 7 in the morning with 7 of our closest family members and we dedicated our love and lives to one another.”

She continued: “With our feet in the water, we connected ourselves to the power and vastness of the ocean. We were hugged by the majestic Ko’olau mountain range, that will continue hugging us as we live and spend the rest of our lives together at Makaalamihi.

“There, with uncle David officiating, we stated our declarations of intent, said our vows and began life together OFFICIALLY as wife, and wife.”

Snaps included an image of the two brides wearing bikini tops and kissing in the ocean.

She also included a couple of silhouetted snaps which showed the pair paddling in the water.

Lyssa went on to say her dad is fully supportive of her new marriage, and added to People: “My dad’s always just loved me and it’s not been something we talk about.

“I think it’s really hard for people who are Christian and do have that belief that marriage belongs to a man and a woman. But when your daughter falls in love with someone and you love that person, you can’t just say you don’t believe in it.”

She added: “I don’t want to put words in his mouth because I don’t know what his exact feelings about it are, but he’s never shown me anything other than support.”
