As expected, Lyssa said yes instantly. While they are already engaged, they have yet to make a formal and specific proposal. When asked about the specific occasion. Chapman stated that she has always imagined it “very small, “in the ocean,” and wearing their bathing suits.”

Lyssa Chapman’s Initial Plan to Marry Leiana Evensen
The star kid and Leianna have been together for more than 5 years, their wedding took a little while to happen. Initially, Duane’s daughter Lyssa had stated on multiple occasions that marriage is just a formality.
According to her, being together and in love is more important than getting married. When asked about her plans to walk down the aisle, she stated,
People always ask us when we’re going to get married but at this point it’s pretty much just some piece of paper. We have completely entangled our lives and we see ourselves as married anyway.
She further added,
Maybe it’s because we’re gay – not to say that just because you’re gay, you don’t want to get married as people fought really hard for their rights, but we are just both really happy with where we are in our relationship right now.
That said, we still hope to see Lyssa and her fiancee Leiana in the wedding gown.
