Garry Chapman, the son of the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star, Duane Chapman, recently shared an Instagram post which features a rare and equally shocking picture of himself looking all grown up.
Garry shared a rare photo via his Instagram page which came as a surprise to most of his fans as the youngster seems a lot bigger than before.
In the photo, young Garry can be seen in a cherry-red jacket beside his dad while they both held out cool hand-signs. One of the most striking parts of the media post is how tall the youngster is.
His height and incredibly large stature easily gained the attention of his fans and supporters. They then expressed their surprise in the post’s comment section.
One fan said:
“…You’re so grown up now. I'm still praying for your mom and the whole family.”
Another asked rhetorically:
“What happened to that little boy we watched grow on A&E?”
The 18-year-old also used the opportunity to encourage his supporters and the public at large to be strong during hard times through his soul-stirring caption. Garry wrote;
“Anyone can give up; it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fall apart, that's true strength.”
Apart from his impressive stature, Garry inherited other traits from Duane. Although Garry behaves in his unique way, his father has always been a major influence in his life.
As per reports, Duane revealed that his own father also played a major role in his growth and inspired some of his decisions. The 66-year-old celebrity vowed to raise his 12 children from five marriages the same way.
In a recent interview, Duane also updated the public on his wife’s health status. Beth is currently battling with throat cancer which she formerly beat before it returned a few months later.
Duane also talked about how he has maintained a positive mindset and how they aren’t letting cancer slow them down. He said confidently:
“I stay positive and, you know, you can’t admit defeat, you just cannot. I have to stay strong.”
