Dakota Chapman was all about his family for Valentine's Day as he shared what looked like a vacation photo with his wife and sons. The little one is already so big.


On Friday, Dakota Chapman shared a sweet family portrait as he celebrated Valentine's Day with the rest of the world. Dakota, 24, has been with girlfriend Cheryl Dianne for a while now.

The bounty hunter became a father last year on January 25, making Duane and his late wife Beth great grandparents for the first time. The family's post is found below.


Beth holds Asher

Soon after Asher was born, Beth shared a touching photo of her holding him in the hospital. She joked in the caption that Asher came early to meet her. Sadly, she passed away on June 26.

Dakota, who is Leland Chapman's son, has been doting on his baby boy since welcoming him early last year. Back in October, Dakota melted hearts when he kissed the sleeping tot in his arms.


A loving dad

He opened up about his love for his son in the caption, writing, "Words can't express what it's like being a father. It is truly a gift like non [sic]." The post garnered over 7,000 likes.

Asher again sat in his dad's arms in the shot he shared on Friday. It also featured Dianne, donned in a pretty yellow bikini, and her other son, who held onto a Mickey Mouse toy.


Family getaway

Behind them was a large body of water and a tall cream building. Based on the grass and palm trees that littered the landscape, it's safe to say the shot was probably from a family getaway.

Dakota joined the rest of his family in mourning Beth last June when she died due to lung and throat cancer at the age of 51. Beth is actually Dakota's step-grandmother.


Dakota honors Beth

Dakota's dad Leland is the son of Duane and his first wife, La Fonda Sue Darnell. For his part, Dakota shared a throwback photo of him carrying Beth's purse to his Instagram story soon after her death.

Beth was the first one who posted the shot, writing back then, "You know he loves his Grandma when he's not afraid to carry my purse." Dakota will undoubtedly feel that love forever.
